Champions League Twenty20 known as the CLT20,CL2020 is a cricket tournament played by the national teams of some of the main cricketing nations in the world.

Like the IPL T20 tournament, these also have matches of 20 overs per innings.

Champions League Twenty20 is held in September and October each year in either South Africa or India. The prize pool of this tournament amounts of $6 million. The winning team receives $2.5 million. Currently, seven teams from eight of the test cricket nations are the main league members.

Format

Initially there was a bit of fumbling around with the format of the tournament, but since 2011 all that seems to have fallen into place when a qualifying round was started allowing direct entrants from India only. Each participating team is awarded money as follows:

  • Winners: $2.5 million
  • Runners-up: $1.3 million
  • Semi-finals losers: $500,000
  • Group stage eliminated teams: $200,000

Each team has a squad of 15 players with a maximum of 4 international players. There are sometimes exceptions made to this rule.

Conclusion

Champions League Twenty20 is a typical example of an attempt to limit the duration of matches to create an element of suspense for enhanced excitement. Thus, a younger and larger crowd gets attracted and the game becomes commercially viable. Although much criticism has been leveled against this form of cricket, the high popularity of it cannot be denied.
