Kumar Sangakkara, the Sri Lankan Maestro turns 44 today. The southpaw is considered one of the best wicket-keeper batsmen the world has ever witnessed. A razor-sharp thinker and a consistent player of his time, he is unarguably the greatest cricketer to come out of the island nation and one of the all-time greats of world cricket. An elegant left-hander, Sangakkara holds numerous batting records in the modern era across all formats of the game. An equally efficient wicket-keeper, he holds the record for most dismissals in One-Day International (ODI) cricket as well.
