Champions League T20 Squads Named
The teams competing in the Champions League Twenty20 2013 have named their final squads for the competition, which gets underway on 17th September.
Players who were eligible for more than one team were again given the choice of which team they would represent although if players represent an 'away' team, the 'away' team has to pay the 'home' team $US 150,000 compensation.
12 players were eligible to play for more than one team and all but two will play for their Indian Premier League team over their 'home' team.
Kumar Sangakkara will turn out for the Kandurata Maroons instead of the Sunrisers Hyderabad while Thisara Perera will play for Sunrisers Hyderabad and not the Brisbane Heat, although neither of those sides are his 'home team.
Dwayne Bravo, Mike Hussey, Albie Morkel and Faf du Plessis will all play for Chennai Super Kings, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kieron Pollard and Mitchell Johnson will turn out for Mumbai Indians, Kevon Cooper and Shane Watson for the Rajasthan Royals.
Ricky Ponting has been omitted from Mumbai Indians' squad while Sachin Tendulkar is named in the reigning IPL champions' line-up, and this is expected to be his Twenty20 farewell.
