Ravichandran Ashwin vs Kumar Sangakkara: A memorable battle for cricket lovers

The contest between Ravichandran Ashwin and Kumar Sangakkara in Sangakkara’s last Test series was outshone by Sanga’s emotional farewell. Sangakkara, who was a fantastic player of spin bowling throughout his career, struggled against Ravichandran Ashwin’s off-spin. Ashwin dismissed Sangakkara 4 times in his last 4 innings; in doing so he became the only man to ever dismiss Sangakkara in four consecutive innings.

The final delivery of Kumar Sangakkara’s Test career proved to be from his recent nemesis Ravichandran Ashwin yet again. Although it was a very emotional moment for all the cricket lovers across the world, but Sangakkara, once again, had no answer to Ashwin’s magic. The ball was the perfect off-spinner’s delivery to the left-hander. Ashwin defeated Sangakkara for one final time, but Sangakkara walked off the field as one of finest batsmen the world has ever seen.
