Sangakkara to choose between Kandurata and Sunrisers

Tuesday, 27 August 2013 - 8:10



Kumar Sangakkara will have to choose between playing for Kandurata Maroons and Sunrisers Hyderabad in the upcoming Champions League T20 in India, after Sri Lanka Cricket have expressed a strong desire for him to represent Kandurata in the tournament.


SLC has gone as far as seeking legal counsel on whether they can ask Sangakkara to play for Kandurata, even if it will effectively cost both Sangakkara and the board significant sums of money if he plays for his local team.


Sangakkara had previously said his IPL contract leaves him with no choice but to play for Sunrisers, but CLT20 organisers have since confirmed that players are free to choose, although they forego 20% of their IPL salary if they do not play for their IPL team.
