Bangalore, Aug 30: Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar will feature in this year's Champions League Twenty20 tournament. Both had retired from the format during this year's Indian Premier League.

Tournament Schedule

On Friday, all 12 squads for CLT20 were announced. The tournament will be held in India from September 17 to October 6. Dravid is set to lead Rajasthan Royals in the tournament which features top T20 club/franchise sides across the world. Tendulkar will pad up for Mumbai Indians under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma. Ricky Ponting has been dropped.

Dravid and Tendulkar to play in CLT20

Some of the players were eligible to play for two teams but had to chose one. Barring Kumar Sangakkara, all have stuck to IPL franchise. Sangakkara will play for Kandurata Maroons.

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 Kumara 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."
