Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara became only the fourth batsman in history to make scores of fifty or more in seven successive Test innings when he reached the landmark against England in the second Test at Headingley yesterday.

A flick off his pads for four through square leg saw Sangakkara join West Indies greats Everton Weekes and Shivnarine Chanderpaul, together with Zimbabwe's Andy Flower, as the only batsmen to have completed the feat.

But left-hander Sangakkara was out for 55 soon afterwards when falling lbw to off-spinner Mooen Ali.
