ECB says no to Champions League

In a memo circulated to the counties, the ECB announced it was “with great regret” that the Friends Provident T20 finalists would be unable to participate in the Champions League. 

The scheduling of a one-day series between India and Australia meant the tournament was brought forward to September 10-26 from October, which left the ECB with no room for manoeuvre. The board got the unanimous support of all the counties which were of the view that ECB should not bend to BCCI’s will this time to fix the tournament for October.
