Sangakkara made history with his fourth one-day international hundred in a row; he was also the first to score four centuries in a single World Cup, and make 1,000 runs in all internationals in 2015. Sri Lanka exceeded 300 for the fourth match running, boosted by Sangakkara's third century partnership with Dilshan in that time, and their 20th in all one-day internationals; only Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly had shared more (26). Joining forces in the sixth over, they were measured early on, as Scotland's seamers gleaned movement off the surface. But, once the threat eased, they began to crack boundaries, adding a brisk 195 in 29 overs, and completing their centuries off successive balls (Dilshan took 97, Sangakkara 86). Dilshan fell a few minutes later, whereupon Sangakkara became even more frenzied, hitting 23 off an over from Evans, before Davey dismissed Jayawardene and him in two deliveries; Sangakkara's final score was 124 off 95 balls, his highest in World Cups. Mathews reached 50 in 20, with his fourth consecutive leg-side six off Machan, but was dismissed next ball, attempting a fifth. Mommsen and Coleman struck bright half-centuries in Scotland's reply, but the required rate rose steeply, and their last six wickets fell for 26, five of them to Kulasekara and Chameera.
