Channai Super kings poised to remove Sri Lankan players

Tuesday, 26 March 2013 - 14:50


Chennai Super Kings are set to drop their two Sri Lankan recruits - Nuwan Kulasekara and Akila Dhananjaya - for the entire sixth edition of the Indian Premier League starting on April 3rd.


It is seen as a compromise formula to appease the Tamil Nadu government, who are not in favour of Sri Lankan sportspersons playing in the state following the current political unrest.


Paceman Kulasekara is a vital cog in the CSK wheel, while Dhananjaya is an off spinner who was picked during this year's auction.


But the CSK bosses are ready to 'sacrifice' both the players for the full season so that the IPL matches stay in Chennai.
