Sangakkara’s Test Performances best those of Tendulkar

March 16, 2015

A Voice from the Middle Eastern Desert … sent to me by Nandasiri JasentuLiyana with the note “Fantastic Stats. Great record keeping effort by whoever the originator was. Have suggested to the sender a Free Lance Journalist in Riyadh Saudi Arabia that this should go into the publication of the Hindu, Tribune , Island, The Gulf papers and other media to which he contributes his  superb articles.”

AVERAGE:               Sanga 58.63                                   Sachin 53.78
