Definitely underappreciated during his time, amazing batsman.Sanga. Over time, his stock has just gone in my eye. Great great batsman.
Sanga also scored two tons in a series against Bond in NZ, which is likely better than any Dravid series performance.Sanga’s legacy is that 624 partnership with Mahela
Dravid’s legacy is that 376 partnership with VVS
Then there’s that Sanga knock of 192 at Hobart that gets my respect
Nah not better than Dravid in 2011 EnglandSanga also scored two tons in a series against Bond in NZ, which is likely better than any Dravid series performance.

Sanga in NZ 2006 was better. Scored 100 out of 170 in the first test and 156 out of 268 in the second against peak Bond.Dravid was stupidly good in England tbh. I don't think Sangakkara had a series like that away from SC It was usually the odd great innings. Having said that, Sri Lanka hardly play long series so that's that
I can't personally chose between these two and Kallis so i lump them together below Tendullkar, Lara and Ponting in that order from that era. Smith slides in ahead ahead of Ponting when i consider the best I've seen overall
I think it is. Sanga hardly had the luxury of playing all these long series like Dravid.Nah not better than Dravid in 2011 England
