Sangakkara Set To Make Warwickshire Debut

Sri Lankan World Cup runner-up Kumar Sangakkara is due to make his long-awaited debut for Warwikshire as they take on Durham in the LV County Championship Division One at Edgbaston.

He is named in a squad of 12 as Warwickshire attempt to regain top spot in the Championship with Yorkshire not playing in this round of matches.

Sangakkara effectively replaces Ian Bell, on England duty, as Tim Groenewald comes in to replace Naqaash Tahir.

Neil Carter (knee surgery) and Ashley Giles (hip) are the other notable absentees.
