“I will play for the Kandurata in the Champions League,” Sangakkara said here yesterday.
Both teams will compete for a place in the main tournament in the preceding qualifiers, which begin in Hyderabad on September 17.
Kandurata qualified in the recent Sri Lankan Super 4 league which was cobbled out as a result of the cancellation of this year’s Sri Lanka Premier League.
“This was an issue which ought to have been settled by Sri Lanka Cricket. They told me that I should play for Kandurata. If I had a free choice where I was not being penalised, my choice would definitely be Kandurata,” the former Sri Lankan captain said.
Sangakkara stands to lose $140,000 from his IPL salary.
