Sangakkara follows 319 with 105

CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh (AP) -- Kumar Sangakkara has achieved the rare feat of scoring a triple century and a century in the same test, joining former England skipper Graham Gooch.

Sangakkara hit 319 runs in the first innings for Sri Lanka and 105 in the second on Friday, in the second test against Bangladesh.

Sangakarra missed the chance of breaking Gooch's record of most runs in a test, as he required 137, but he was dismissed by Sohag Gazi after facing 144 balls, including 11 boundaries and two sixes.

Gooch scored 333 and 123, for an aggregate of 456, against India at Lord's in 1990.

Sangakkara was dropped on 36 by Nasir Hossain at deep mid-wicket off the bowling of Shakib Al Hasan.
