Veteran Sri Lanka batsman Kumar Sangakkara has admitted that one of the biggest regrets of his illustrious career is the fact that he has never been able to get his hands on the World Cup trophy.

Sangakkara, who will hang up his boots for good after the second Test of the ongoing series against India, was involved in two World Cup finals, but Sri Lanka ended up losing both to Australia in 2007 and India in 2011.

“I would have loved to win a 50-over World Cup,” he told reporters. “We had two chances but we didn’t convert them. It would have been great had we won a Test series in India as well. So there are things that could have been but I think that’s the way the game goes.

“There are regrets but not regrets that I will be thinking about for years and years, and be bitter about. I have had a great career. I have enjoyed everything – the wins and the losses. The bad times and the good times, everything has been a great experience.”
