Champions League T20 in South Africa

The Governing Council has accepted Cricket South Africa's offer to host the tournament, with the venues and competing teams for the second edition of competition will be finalised in the coming weeks.

CL Chairman Lalit Modi said: “South Africa is considered an ideal CLT20 host after successfully     staging the Indian Premier League and ICC World Twenty20 tournaments in recent years, as well as the strong support shown for its domestic Pro20 Series competition.”

The CL Governing Council is scheduled to meet in May to finalise the details for the tournament. It comprises the three founding member boards of the tournament, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Cricket Australia (CA) and Cricket South Africa (CSA).
IPL finalists Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings and third-place finishers Royal Challengers have qualified for CL while other teams and the venues would be finalised in the coming weeks. New South Wales had won the inaugural edition of the event in India.
