|Kumar Sangakkara to play for Kandurata Maroons|
Champions League T20 -2013
The Senior Sri Lankan batsman and wicket keeper Kumar Sangakkara said that he will play for the ‘Kandurata Maroons’ over his IPL team Sunrisers Hyderabad in the upcoming Champions League Twenty20 tournament.
The Kandurata Maroons team qualified for the Champions League after winning the recently concluded Sri Lankan Super 4 league which was cobbled out as a result of the cancellation of this year's Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL).

" Hi Guys, Just to let you know I have decided to play for Kandurata Maroons in the Champions League and informed the CLT20 yesterday. It was a very tough decision to make that was made even harder by the behavior of certain personalities who were determined to inflame the issue into an emotive Country v Money issue. I am very disappointed by the disrespectful manner in which the issue was handled, but I made the decision for my own reasons and will now focus in preparing properly for the tournament with my team-mates. Thanks to all those that have supported me in this. I would also like to say a thank-you to the fans, officials and fellow players at Sunrisers Hyderabad. I really enjoyed being part of the franchise and I am very grateful for the opportunities given to me to play for them. Cheers, Sanga "
