The squads of all participating 12 sides in the upcoming Champions League T20 (CLT20) 2014 tournament were announced on Friday. All those players, such as Jacques Kallis and Kieron Pollard, named by more than two teams have chosen to play for their Indian Premier League (IPL) sides. The tournament is scheduled to be played in India from September 13 to October 4.
“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,” CLT20 organisers said in a statement.
Explaining the process for deciding which teams these players would represent, said like previous seasons, the IPL franchises will have to financially compensate the teams that the players have left, PTI reported.
“Like previous seasons, 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 Teams are then allowed to replace any player that has withdrawn from their squad and elected to play for another side,” said Dean Kino, CLT20 Governing Council member and Director of Legal and Business Affairs.
