Pak team pulls out of B'lore meet

Bangalore, Jan 15, 2013, DHNS: 22:55 IST
The International College Premier League (CPL) T20, conducted by Jain University’s Centre for Management Studies (CMS), has become the latest sporting event to be hit by the tension between India and Pakistan.

Lahore’s Beaconhouse National University, one of the four foreign teams expected to play in the event, decided to withdraw from the tournament starting on Wednesday citing security concerns.

“The Pakistan team was expected to arrive here on Tuesday but they sent a mail communicating their inability to make it to the event,’’ Nitin, a student co-ordinator for the competition, said.

Jain University, CMS Principal Dinesh Nilkant felt it was unfortunate but added there was nothing one could do about it. “All their documents were in place but this incident and the mood probably prompted them to take this decision,’’ he added.

Along with Beaconhouse, two other international teams — UK’s Middlesex University and UAE’s American University of Sharjah — have also opted out of the tournament without giving any specific reason.
The tournament, which is into its second edition will now have the presence of only one foreign team, Kathmandu’s Triton College.

The Twenty20 event will commence with a league round comprising 24 teams divided into eight groups with 13 colleges from Karnataka, 10 outstation teams and the Nepalese team in the fray. All matches will be played at the Jain International Residential School (JIRS) grounds.

Teams: Group I: Dayanand Sagar College, VIT (Pune), Triton College (Kathmandu). Group II: Reva Institute, TKR College (Hyderabad), SRM University (Chennai). Group III: BMS College of Engineering, Deshbandhu College (Delhi), Guru Nanak College (Chennai). Group IV: Manipal University, Jain College (Belgaum), Bhawanipur College (Kolkata). Group V: CMR Institute, Ram Lal Anand College (Delhi), Bhavan’s Vivekananda College (Hyderabad). Group VI: SDM College (Mangalore), EIILM College (Kolkata), HR College (Mumbai). Group VII: Presidency College, Sree Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain College, Christ University. Group VIII: Surana College, St Joseph’s College, Vijaya College.
