Galle, Jun 23: Kumar Sangakkara smashed an unbeaten 170 to guide Sri Lanka to 439-8 at tea on the second day of the first test against Pakistan on Saturday.






Sangakkara's knock was a chanceless one and, after resuming at Galle International Stadium from his overnight score of 111, he reached 150 in the afternoon by pushing Junaid Khan to mid-on for a single.

Sangakkara also completed 2,000 test runs against Pakistan, becoming only the second cricketer after Indian great Sunil Gavaskar to achieve the mark.

 His eight hundreds against Pakistan is a record against that country, jointly held with compatriot Aravinda de Silva.

Pakistan off spinner Saeed Ajmal took 5-138, completing his sixth five-wicket haul when he picked up three wickets in the session as Sri Lanka slumped to 335-5 from 315-2.
