"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"
