PostSubject: Sizzling Sangakkara sets new world record   Mon Jul 23, 2012 3:42 am

Sri Lanka's [ Images ] Kumar Sangakkara [ Images ] on Saturday completed 2,000 runs against Pakistan and in the process the left-hander also created a new world record, on the second day of the first Test, in Galle.

- Scorecard

Sangakkara needed only 26 innings to reach this mark -- the least any batsman has taken in aggregating 2,000 runs against any particular opponent in the history of Test cricket.

The previous record was shared by India's [ Images ] Sunil Gavaskar [ Images ] and West Indian Brian Lara [ Images ], who took 28 innings each to reach 2,000-run mark against West Indies [ Images ] and England [ Images ] respectively.

The quickest to reach 2,000 runs against a particular opponent:

Sangakkara was left stranded on 199, only the second batsman to suffer this fate in Test chronicles after Zimbabwean Andy Flower [ Images ] (against South Africa [ Images ], at Harare in 2001).

He, however, now has 15 scores in excess of 150 -- the same as Ricky Ponting [ Images ]. Only Sachin Tendulkar [ Images ], Brian Lara and Don Bradman have got more scores of 150 or more in Test cricket.
