With the Rugby World Cup getting more exciting as the tournament progresses, the media has been relatively quiet about the start of the Champions League T20. For that reason we at Up and Under decided to keep you informed about all the latest results and news regarding the exciting 6-hitting tournament. Due to the country running high with rugby fever, south africans may not be as excited about the tournament as last year. But you can bet your socks off, that attitude will change the moment you see AB hitting a six off some Australian, or Johan Botha hitting middle stump of Chris Gayle. Yes the tournament is filled with the best playes in the world, and there is an abundance of South Africans taking part in it. Whether they are part of the south african or IPL teams.


Chris Gayle will be looking to continue with his form from IPL2011

One thing that counts in the CLT20’s favour is that the teams and players take the tournament extremely seriously. The $2.5m prize money on offer in the CLT20,has the ability to completely transform any team’s financial fortunes. Even the $200,000 appearance money will make a huge difference for a cash strapped team.

The tournament also provides the possibility of a life-changing IPL contract. Look at Kieron Pollard from the West Indies, who rocketed to cricket stardom after his performance in ClT20 two years ago. And look at Davey Jacobs who earned himself a $190 000 a year contract from the Mumbai Indians after his powerful batting performance last year. For South African cricket players, that is the type of money they will never earn while playing in the domestic league.

Yes top quality cricket is exactly what you can expect from this tournament. Yes you will see sixes, yes you will see wickets, yes you will see high quality action packed cricket squeezed into a thrilling 3 hour slot!!
