Against South Africa in the same series, Kumara played his first test. After going out in the 90s twice, he finally made his debut Test century in the ninth match.
Sangakkara quickly developed into a charming batsman with access to practically every cricket hit.
In the final of the second Asian Test Championship in 2002, Kumara hit his first double-century against Pakistan.
Kumara once again demonstrated his importance as the anchor of the Sri Lankan batting order with his remarkable 192 against Australia in Hobart in 2007.

Achievements and Awards:
With 246 ODIs and 80 Tests, Sangakkara took over as Sri Lanka's captain in 2009, replacing Jayawardene.
