Kolkata, Jan 15 (IANS) Veteran Sri Lankan cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya Friday courted controversy after it was found that he has signed for two clubs simultaneously in the ongoing CAB league and knock-out tournaments.
The matter came to light Friday, the last day of players’ registration, when Jayasuriya’s name was found in the lists of both clubs.

Sources said the Sri Lankan player had opted to sign for Kalighat after initially giving his consent to turn out for Mohun Bagan.

A Cricket Association of Bengal official said Jayasuriya may be asked to explain the reasons for the fiasco. “We may seek explanation from the clubs also.”

Both the clubs have decided to withdraw Jayasuriya’s name from their list to defuse the crisis.
