Sangakkara poised to join 10,000 club

Sri Lankan veteran Kumar Sangakkara is poised to join the exclusive 10,000-run club in the Boxing Day Test at Melbourne against Australia, a landmark he plans to build on.

The prolific batsman needs just 40 more runs in his 115th Test to join the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, Rahul Dravid and Jacques Kallis to complete the milestone.

‘I think 10,000 Test runs is that separation between a batsman who will probably be remembered a bit more than the rest,’ the left-hander told reporters on Sunday.

‘It’s pretty good to be almost there. And then hopefully beyond 10,000 as well.’

‘Melbourne and Sydney have always traditionally been almost like home games for us,’ he said.
