Two Indian cricketers Virender Sehwag and Robin Uthappa have found berth in the initial Airtel Champions League Twenty20 All-Stars XI chosen by ESPN Star Sports commentators.

Swashbuckling Sehwag, who has returned to top flight competition after recovering from a shoulder injury sustained during the Indian Premier League competition in South Africa in May, is the lone Delhi Daredevils player who has made the cut.

Uthappa, ignored by the national selectors for the first two ODIs against Australia, is one among three players from Royal Challengers Bangalore to earn the distinction, a media release said today.

Players from RCB, Cape Cobras of South Africa, Victorian Bushrangers of Australia and Trinidad and Tobago from the West Indies dominated the list.

The CLT20 All Stars XI contains six batsmen, four bowlers and one wicket-keeper based on the opening rounds of the tournament, the release said.

To be considered for selection in the All Stars XI, 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).
