Champions League Twenty 20: Will there be a clash between PSL and IPL teams after 10 years?  Cricket boards of 3 countries are at loggerheads

New Delhi. The Champions League T20 tournament may return once again after 10 years. The cricket boards of three countries India, England and Australia have shown interest in restarting this tournament and talks are going on between them. However, getting the window for this league will be the biggest challenge. Because now every cricket playing country has its own T20 league. In such a situation, it will be very difficult to arrange a window for the Champions League.

Let us tell you that when IPL started, in the initial years a tournament was played by combining teams of different franchise cricket leagues from all over the world. Its name was Champions League T20. T20 teams of England, Australia, Pakistan and New Zealand participated in it. At that time there was competition between 12 teams. However, it was discontinued in 2014. There are preparations to revive it again.

Champions League T20 was last played in 2014
The last time Champions League T20 was organized was in 2014. Then Chennai Super Kings won the title by defeating Kolkata Knight Riders. At that time, three franchises from India, 2 each from Australia and South Africa and one franchise each from Pakistan, West Indies and New Zealand had participated.

Its 4 seasons were played in India
The Champions League was played every year between 2009 and 2014. Out of its 6 seasons, 4 were played in India and 2 in South Africa. Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians were successful in winning the Champions League T20 twice each, while Australia’s New South Wales and Sydney Sixers became champions once each.

Cricket Victoria CEO Nick Cummins said that creating a window for this tournament is the most difficult challenge in the busy cricket calendar. Speaking at an event related to the launch of Melbourne Cricket Academy in India, he said that I think the Champions League was a premature initiative. T20 cricket had just started then. But, now it has become everyone’s favorite format. Cricket Australia, ECB and BCCI are talking about restarting it. It is also possible that the first Champions League will be in women’s cricket, in which teams from WPL, The Hundred and Women’s Big Bash League can participate.
