Champions League Twenty20The Governing Council (GC) of the Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) on 15 July 2015 decided to scrap the CLT20 competition due to its limited public following.

The GC consists of representatives of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Cricket South Africa (CSA) and Cricket Australia (CA).

As the championship has been scrapped, the 2015 CLT20, scheduled for September and October, will not go ahead as planned.

The decision assumes significance against the backdrop of Supreme Court appointed Justice Lodha Committee’s verdict on 14 July 2015 suspending the IPL teams Chennai Super Kings and (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals for two years.

Incidentally, the CSK are CLT20 defending champions as well as one of the competitors after finishing runners-up in the IPL 2015.
