The Kandurata Warriors are a franchise cricket team that competes in the Sri Lanka Premier League, representing Central Province. Somerset Entertainment Ventures (S) Pte Ltd purchased the team for $5.32 million in 2012. They will own the team for seven years, after which a new agreement may be negotiated.[1]

History[edit]

Australian player Adam Voges did not play in the SLPL 2012 due to pressure from his current team Nottinghamshire. Although Voges, the former Australia international who has played in the IPL and more recently for Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League, is listed as one of eight overseas players on the roster of the Kandurata franchise, Notts insisted his obligations at Trent Bridge will be met in full.
