New sponsors & kits for Kandurata Maroons Champions League Campaign

By  |  1 Comment


Sri Lanka Cricket announced last week that Jat Holdings will sponsor the kits of the Kandurata Maroons team for the Champions League T20 in India.  The Kandurata team, Sri Lanka’s sole representatives at the Champions League, will take on Sunrisers Hydrebad in the Indian city of Mohali for their first qualifier on 17th of September.  The Hydrebad side lost the in-form Kumar Sangakara to Kandurata after pressure mounted on the former Sri Lanka skipper to pick the local team instead of the IPL franchise for whom he was originally appointed as captain.

Judging by the pictures it seems the Maroons have been endowed with much better-looking kits than the confusingly chosen light blue they wore for the domestic T20 tournament where they emerged winners. The 15-man squad announced earlier this month has 9 present and former Sri Lankan internationals making them a formidable outfit in the tournament, at least to qualify for the main draw which starts September 21st.

Kandurata Squad and Schedule:

Squad: Lahiru Thirimanne, Nuwan Kulasekara, Upul Tharanga, Thilina Kandambhy, Kumar Sangakkara, Shehan Jayasuriya, Chamara Silva, Milinda Siriwardana, Dilhara Lokuhettige, Dhammika Prasad, Ajantha Mendis, Kaushal Lokuarachchi, Lahiru Jayaratne, Dhananjaya De Silva, Suraj Randiv
