Fans in Australia will be able to witness the classic cuts and pull shots from Kumar Sangakkara once again as the legend prepares to feature for the Hobart Hurricanes. The left-handed former Sri Lankan batting mainstay bowed out of international duties in 2015 but has been since then continuing to stamp his class in domestic T20 leagues and franchise cricket.

He has made successful appearances for the Quetta Gladiators (Pakistan Super League), Jamaica Tallawahs (Caribbean Premier League) and the Dhaka Dynamites (Bangladesh Premier League). Likewise, as he travels to Hobart for yet another T20 outing, fans will expect a lot from him.
