"The expectations are pretty high. Coming in and starting to play cricket again after the World Cup is also a great feeling and hopefully as a franchise and as a team we can to do really well this year," said Sangakkara.
"You have to get on with the job and start playing and winning games," he added.

"That's the way a lot of people have changed teams this year and I think I am very privileged to be here with Deccan Chargers, which is a great franchise. Deccan Chargers are a great team and have a great coach, I am looking forward to playing here."
