Sanath Jayasuriya is in a bit of hot water after signing up to play for two different clubs in the same Indian league.

Jayasuriya was to take part in the the Cricket Association of Bengal’s CAB League, but the two teams, Kalighat Cricket Club and Mohun Bagan Athletic Club, have both withdrawn his name to put an end to the controversy.

It is unclear if Jayasuriya will take any part in the on going CAB league and the knock-out tournament for any team.

According to an IANS news release, Jayasuriya had agreed to turn up for Mohun Bagan but had later chosen to sign up for Kalighat.

Indian tennis legend Leander Paes’ sports agency, Leander Sport, manages Sanath Jayasuriya.
