Nannes opts for Daredevils


Of the nine cricketers eligible to play for multiple teams, only Nannes was nominated in the preliminary squads of both the Daredevils and Victorian Bushrangers.

“Dirk Nannes, who was nominated by both the Delhi Daredevils and the Victorian Bushrangers, has informed Champions League Twenty20 that he will play for his ‘away’ team, the Delhi Daredevils, rather than his ‘home’ team, the Victorian Bushrangers,” Dean Kino, a CLT20 Governing Council Member, said.

“As a result, Delhi is required to pay $ 200,000 compensation to Victoria according to regulations. The other players who were eligible for multiple teams will compete for their ‘home’ teams in the tournament, while Dwayne Smith, who was considered an ‘away’ player for both Deccan and Sussex, will represent his English team,” Keno said.

After the twelve teams submitted their preliminary squads for the October 8-23 event, the organisers said of the 234 players nominated, 110 have played international cricket.
“The announcement of the preliminary squads ensures the it will be a true contest between the best of the best. A congregation of the world’s best players, playing for the world’s best domestic teams, vying for the ultimate prize to be crowned Champions -- we could not have asked for anything more,” Chairman of the CLT20 Governing Council Lalit Modi said.
