Kumar Sangakkara is still hailed as one of the best batsman wicketkeepers in the world, he has scored runs in every part of the globe and he is extremely athletic behind the stumps. He is also a leader, a successful captain. Currently, he is participating in the Pakistan Super League, representing Karachi Kings, a team that boasts of massive stars. They were playing the Islamabad United at Sharjah in a play-off match.
It was a low scoring thriller in which Kumar Sangakkara- led Karachi Kings beat Islamabad United. Though Sanga failed with the bat, he more than made up for it from behind the stumps. That is the advantage to have your premier batsman doing glove duties from behind the stumps, he surely made that difference.

They were defending a low total of 126. See, it is a proven fact that catches win matches and to get your first wicket early in the piece to some brilliance in the field, lifts the moral of the bowler and the fielders, spreading positive vibes. Islamabad United had just begun their chase to make it to the second eliminator to play Peshwa Zalmi, they had 12 runs on the board, when Mohammad Aamir got Dwayne Smith to play an ambitious extra cover drive over the top, Smith got a thick edge. Kumar Sangakkara like a bird, flew of his blocks in a flash and with his outstretched right hand he managed to hold on to it. It is bound to be among the best catches of the tournament.
