Sanga.. Sanga..: Can you believe now that Sangakkara is going to retire from ODI’s after this World Cup. Entire world wonders WHY. Irrespective of Sri Lankan team’s progress in World cup, Sangakkara has been showing warrior spirit with marvellous performance in every match. With a ton today, he became the first man in ODI history to score centuries in four consecutive innings and the first to make four hundreds in one World Cup tournament alone. Seniors are expressing their opinon that Sanga can continue in team for few more months.
