Squads of Karbonn Smart CLT20 2013 announced

Complete list of 15-member squads of all 12 teams

The final squads for the Karbonn Smart Champions League Twenty20 2013, to be played in India from 17 September to 6 October, have been announced. 

A dozen of the world’s best Twenty20 cricketers were in high demand after being named by more than one squad.

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 were named by more than one team were asked to select which team they were going to play for. Teams were then allowed to replace any player that withdrew from their squad and elected to play for another side.

“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.

“This payment is applicable for 10 of the 12 players that were eligible for more than one team. The exceptions are Kumar Sangakkara, who will be representing Kandurata Maroons, which is classified as his home team, and Thisara Perera, who qualified for the Brisbane Heat and Hyderabad Sunrisers, neither of which is classified as his home team.”

The players and their teams they have chosen to represent in bold below:
