Sangakkara up against his IPL team

Tuesday, 17 September 2013 - 10:51



While this match represents a Champions League debut for Kandurata Maroons and Sunrisers Hyderabad, both teams will know just how vital it is to hit the ground running in what could potentially be a short tournament for either side.


Both teams need to win at least two of the three qualification matches to have a strong chance of making the main draw.


This will be the first time these sides face each another, so Kumar Sangakkara will play an influential role in providing some insight on the inner workings of Hyderabad.


Thisara Perera can also shed some light on Kandurata, as a number of his compatriots make up the roster.
