Sangakkara's drought ends

Congratulations to Kumar Sangakkara on finally scoring a test hundred in England, and at a crucial time for his country. It may well be his first first-class ton in England, but he has of course made one in Wales, in a rain-curtailed match at Sophia Gardens on a previous tour.

He went up in my estimation when I read about his leisure reading in an interview conducted when England last toured Sri Lanka. While most England players would regard Dan Brown as high-brow reading, Sangakkara was catching up on Oscar Wilde.
