Hyderabad - Kandurata in battle of debutants

Tuesday, 17 September 2013 - 17:05


Sunrisers Hyderabad and Sri Lankan champions Kandurata Maroons will make their Champions League Twenty20 debuts in the second qualifier today, which will see Shikhar Dhawans army train guns at their IPL captain Kumar Sangakkara.

A win over Basnahira Greens in the final of the Sri Lanka Cricket Super 4s Twenty20 tournament earned Kandurata a chance to play the 2013 CLT20 Qualifiers.

Sangakkaras decision to play for Kandurata prompted Hyderabad to appoint their Indian star Shikhar Dhawan as skipper.
