Are you ready for another IPL look alike league tournament ? Cricket fans will have another Twnety20 league coming up.
IPL success led to creation of new league – Cricket Champions League (CCL). The parties involved in this league are England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), Cricket Australia , the Board for the Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) and Cricket South Africa.
The structure looks very similar to IPL with eight teams and winners get a huge reward of £2.5m. Winners from each board like IPL winners Rajasthan Royals and the runners up Chennai superkings are already part of eight teams of CCL. From Australia cricket – Western Australia and Victoria teams, From South africa – the Titans and KwaZulu Natal Dolphins. ECB twenty 20 winners are yet to be decided.
Venues will be either India or Middle East. My guess is it would be india where stadiums were full for IPL thus getting ticket revenues would be easy for this new league.
