Champions League t20 cancelled

There will be no more Champions League twenty20 after the competition was cancelled with immediate effect.

The tournament, which has run since 2009 and featured the top t20 sides from most of the major Test-playing countries, has been withdrawn because of “limited public following”.

Launched by the cricket boards of India, Australia and South Africa, the competition had an overall prize fund of $6m (£3.8m).

Chennai Super Kings of the Indian Premier League won the latest edition of the tournament in 2014.

Anurag Thakur, honorary secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India said: “It was a fantastic platform for players from around the world to showcase their talent and the participating teams thoroughly enjoyed the experience over the last six seasons.”
