Champions League T20 Discontinued.
The council of Champions League T20 committee today (15/06/2015) confirmed that the league discontinued with immediate basis.
In 2009 three boards including Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Cricket South Africa (CSA) and Cricket Australia (CA) have started the league. The same board members made this decision after several discussions.
“This has been a difficult decision as the CLT20 provided added context to a number of domestic T20 competitions around the world such as the Indian Premier League (IPL) in India, Big Bash League (BBL) in Australia and South Africa’s Ram Slam T20,”
It was a fantastic platform for players from around the world to showcase their talent and the participating teams thoroughly enjoyed the experience over the last six seasons.
Unfortunately, off the field, CLT20 wasn’t sustaining the interest of the fans as we had hoped. This decision was made, after consultation with all our commercial partners and meeting the contractual obligations of all parties involved.
The Governing Council would like to thank everyone involved with the CLT20 and all those who participated in the tournament. Further details associated with winding down the league including settling with the three nations that had invested time and effort in the competition, will be completed very soon.” said by BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur.
