With Champions League starting in a few hours’ time, people will start searching for the Champions League 2014 Team Standing on the web. T20 is a very popular format in India as everything in it happens so quickly. People don’t need to devote the whole day to watch the matches in this format. It’s like an entertainment movie which gets over in just 3 hours. And the Champions League is a peculiar sort of tournament. It’s not like IPL or the other domestic leagues in which the franchise sides from the same country take part. In this tournament, the best T20 sides from all over the world take part and that’s why, people take a lot of interest in it.
The Champions League T20 tournament generally takes place in India. A couple of times, it has taken place in South Africa, but, generally, it gets organized in India because the Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) is the main administrator of the tournament. The BCCI generally awards the matches of CLT20 to small cities and in every match, the stadiums get filled too. This time around also, most of the matches have been awarded to Raipur which is a small city in central India.
Come the Saturday and the tussle will start between the teams for getting to top places in the Champions League T20 2014 points table. First the qualifying sides will go head to head and then, the main draw will kick off next week with first match between KKR and CSK. The Champion teams in the domestic T20 competitions in Pakistan, Sri Lanka and New Zealand are the three qualifiers, while, the 4th one is the Mumbai Indians which was the 4th place holder in the IPL table.
The IPL is the biggest and the best standard league in the world and that’s why, from IPL, as many as 4 teams have qualified from the Champions League. From the Big Bash League which is also an exciting league, two teams have qualified. Two teams have qualified from the South African league as well i.e. the Ram Slam.
