Sri Lanka v England, 3rd ODI, Hambantota December 3, 2014

Sangakkara: 474 dismissals, 13050 runs

Stats highlights from the third ODI between Sri Lanka and England in Hambantota
14

474 Number of ODI dismissals made by Kumar Sangakkara, a record. Prior to this game, Sangakkara and Adam Gilchrist were tied on 472 dismissals each.

6 Number of ducks registed by Kusal Perera, the most by an ODI opener since 2012. Five of those ducks have come in 2014. The record for the most ducks in a calendar year is eight, by Herschelle Gibbs in 2002.

4 Number of batsmen to have collected 13,000 ODI runs. Sangakkara went past this mark when he was batting on 13 during his innings of 63. The other batsmen to have gone past this mark are Sachin Tendulkar (18,426), Ricky Ponting (13,704) and Sanath Jayasuriya (13,430).

100 Number of ODIs that Sri Lanka played between Thilina Kandamby's last ODI appearance, in July 2011, and this game.

1 There has been only one previous occasion where two of Sri Lanka's top-four batsmen have gotten out for ducks against England - at Trent Bridge in 2011. Perera and Kandamby were out for ducks during Sri Lanka's innings in this ODI.

7 England's run rate during their chase. Excluding reduced ODIs of less than 30 overs, this is the third time that England have scored at seven runs per over in successful chases where the required rate has been six or more. The previous instances were against Sri Lanka (2002) and India (2011).

5 Number of sixes that Moeen Ali hit during his innings of 58 off 40 balls, the joint-most by an England opener. Ali himself hit five sixes in the first ODI of this series, and so did Andrew Strauss against Bangladesh in 2010.

    @uwaisul Karnain... your link is outdated, sanga has played 386 matches, not 342...

  • dummy4fb on December 4, 2014, 10:41 GMT

    Kapugedara should be included in place of Kandamby.

  • dummy4fb on December 4, 2014, 9:34 GMT

    Congrats Dear Sanga... Continue your hunger and thirst for runs...

    Climb greater heights...

    Congratulations to Sangakkara For Scoring 13000 Runs in ODI. I am Sure Before he Retire he will over take Ricky Ponting and Jayasuriya.s ODI Records and hold the Second place after Sachin Tendulkar . Kusal Perera Should not play as a Opener in the team. He Should Play in the middle order.the Best pair to open the innings is Mahela and Dilshan. Upul Tharanga also must be given a chance to prove him self another chance.

    Really think Kusal or Tharanga. . Maybe Mahela. . to open And kandambi or Tharanga to fill the space of Mahela in middle order I think that's the best options keep finger cross

    Nice work team Cricinfo, Thanks for keeping us update.

    @PadMarley; Sanga played some matches for Sri Lanka as a batsman alone while some others were doing the keeping. He might have taken 19 catches as a fielder, which if true shouldnt be counted along with his keeping dismissals. I am not sure about the exact stats though..

  • PadMarley on December 4, 2014, 6:29 GMT

    @Uwaisul Karnain Can you explain please?? what was he doing when those 19 dismissals took place??
