No official status

THE Champions League Twenty20 tournament will not be recognized as part of the official calendar as the event being launched this October is played among domestic teams, the International Cricket Council has said.

"The ICC board, which includes all full members, worked together last October to come up with a date for this year's Champions League tournament that was mutually convenient for all," ICC Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat said in a statement, clarifying some media reports. The October 8-23 event involves 12 teams, two each from Australia, England and South Africa and one each from New Zealand, West Indies and Sri Lanka.
