Mumbai Indians to get direct entry to CLT20?
« on: 06/23/2012, 11:48 PM »
NEW DELHI: Last year's Champions League Twenty20 champs and the fourth team in this year's IPL standings - Mumbai Indians - won't be playing any qualifying matches and will get a direct entry into the richest cricket league, which is likely to be played in South Africa.

The other from India, which will play in Champions League are 2012 IPL winners Kolkata Knight Riders, Chennai Super Kings & Delhi Daredevils.

Last year, CLT20 had top three IPL teams and the fourth team had to go through the qualifying stage before playing the main tournament. And, KKR had played the qualifying matches.

This year, sources said that champion teams from England and Pakistan (Sialkot Champions) might have to play the qualifying matches. "A discussion to this effect has taken place, now it's up to the council to take the final call," a source told TOI on Saturday.

It was also learnt that the Governing Council of the Champions League T20 will meet in Kuala Lumpur on Monday to decide on the host nation. According to a source, South Africa will inform the council on whether or not they are ready to host the Champions League.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
