Indian Premier League champions Deccan Chargers start as one of the favourites in the 12-team tournament.
Led by Adam Gilchrist, they proved the form book wrong by storming to the IPL title in South Africa. Now their fans are hoping they can complete the double in the Champions League Twenty20 tournament.
The presence of top international stars like Andrew Symonds, Scott Styris, Rohit Sharma, Pragyan Ojha and Chaminda Vaas definitely makes them one of the teams to watch out for.
Squad: Adam Gilchrist (captain), Andrew Symonds, RP Singh, Venugopal Rao, Azhar Bilakhia, Fidel Edwards, Harmeet Singh, Ryan Harris, VVS Laxman, Pragyan Ojha, Rohit Sharma, Shoaib Ahmed, Scott Styris, Tirumalasetti Suman, Chaminda Vaas
