Team Squads announced for 2014 Champions League Twenty20

MUMBAI: The squads for the world’s premier Twenty20 competition were announced today and will comprise international cricket’s biggest names along with domestic players.


Eight players scheduled to take part in the competition were in high demand after being named in more than one squad, after their respective Twenty20 clubs from around the world qualified for the tournament.


Explaining the process for deciding which teams these players would represent, CLT20 Governing Council member and director of legal and business affairs Dean Kino said, “Players who have been named by more than one team have been asked to nominate which side they are going to represent. Players are free to make any decision they wish.  Teams are then allowed to replace any player that has withdrawn from their squad and elected to play for another side."


He added by saying that “CLT20 regulations state that when a player elects to play for their ‘away’ team, that team must pay the ‘home’ team $150,000 compensation per player. A ‘home’ team is classified as a team from the country a player is eligible to represent in international cricket.”


The players and their teams they have chosen to represent are marked in asterisk below:


Corey Anderson –  Northern District Cricket Association /Mumbai Indians*


George Bailey – Hobart Hurricanes / Kings XI Punjab*


Patrick Cummins – Perth Scorchers / Kolkata Knight Riders*

Jacques Kallis – Cape Cobras / Kolkata Knight Riders*

Lasith Malinga – Southern Express /Mumbai Indians*


David Miller – Dolphins / Kings XI Punjab*


Kieron Pollard – Barbados Tridents / Mumbai Indians*


Dwayne Smith · Barbados Tridents / Chennai Super Kings*


The tournament will follow a format where a group stage will be preceded by a qualifier. A total of 29 matches will be played in the competition.


The group stage will be played from 17 September to 4 October 2014 and will feature 10 teams. The qualifier will be played from 13 to 16 September 2014.


At the group stage, each side will play the other four in its group once, with the top two sides from each group going through to the semi-finals. In the qualifier, all teams will play each other once, with the top two advancing to the group stage.


The top team from Group A will play the second-ranked team from Group B, and vice versa, in the semi-finals, both of which will be played at Hyderabad on 2 October 2014. Bengaluru will host the final on 4 October 2014.
