Kumar Sangakkara is a national hero who needs little introduction to anyone familiar with the world of cricket. One of the sport’s global icons and living legends, Sanga is considered one of the best players Sri Lanka has ever produced. He is the second-highest run scorer in ODI cricket and the fifth-highest run scorer in test cricket. He was also named the Wisden Leading Cricketer in the World in 2011 and 2015 and the ICC Cricketer of the Year in 2012.
He is well known for his many charitable commitments including his work on behalf of Sri Lanka’s Foundation of Goodness of which he is an active Trustee. He was one of the leading ambassadors of Trail in 2011 – moved immensely by the experience that gave him the opportunity to support a cause he deeply cares about while interacting with his fans in a whole new light, he was committed to walking the full length of Trail 2016.
