Bangalore:

RC Bangalore, Cape Cobras, Victorian Bushrangers and Trinidad & Tobago dominate the Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) All-Stars XI list, that was announced on Thursday.

Among those gaining selection in the initial All-Stars XI are Cape Cobras pair Andrew Puttick and JP Duminy. On the opening night of the tournament, Duminy carried his team to victory against RC Bangalore with a sublime unbeaten 99 from 52 balls, while Cobras captain Puttick surpassed that effort two days later with 104 not out from 62 balls against the Otago Volts.

In Group A, a pair of man of the match performances by Trinidad & Tobago's Dwayne Bravo has not only propelled his team into the League Phase, but also earned the 26-year-old all-rounder a place in the team. Bravo is joined in the All-Stars XI by teammate and wicket-keeper Dinesh Ramdin.

RC Bangalore's Ross Taylor too caught the eye in the opening week of the competition. The Kiwi batsman has a strike rate of 242.86 (85 runs from 35 balls) and smashed 32 from 11 against Volts to secure his team s passage into the next round.

The CLT20 All Stars XI is a team chosen by ESPN Star Sports (official broadcasters) commentators containing six batsmen, four bowlers and one wicket-keeper based on the opening rounds of the tournament.

A player must be ranked in the top 20 for batting (runs scored), top 15 for bowling (wickets taken) or among the top four wicket-keepers (dismissals) to be considered for the selection in the list.

It is the first list of the three. It will be updated after the league stage and the semi-finals.

The full CLT20 All-Stars XI is as follows:

JP Duminy (Cape Cobras)

Andrew Puttick (Cape Cobras)

Robin Uthappa (RC Bangalore)

Virender Sehwag (Delhi Daredevils)

Ross Taylor (RC Bangalore)

Jacques Kallis (RC Bangalore)
