The Masters Champions League, MCL, will feature a franchise format. However, unlike the IPL or Big Bash, teams will not be based on geographic location, and instead will simply include the best possible players a franchise owner can put together from the qualifying player base.


Chennai Super Kings crush Kolkata Knight Riders in CLT20 Final

The Chennai Super Kings have stopped the Kolkata Knight Riders' unbeaten streak at 14 matches, thumping them by 8 wickets in the Final of the Champions League T20 in Bangalore tonight.

Having been put into bat after losing the toss, KKR posted a competitive 180-6 in their 20 overs, but will probably feel they were about 20 odd runs short, especially after the start they were given by captain Gautam Gambhir, who top scored for the IPL Champions with 80 from just 52 balls.

Gambhir's knock, punctuated with 7 boundaries and 3 maximums was part of a 91 run stand he shared for the opening wicket with Robin Uthappa, who made a handy 39 from 32 balls.


Kolkata Knight Riders win 14th straight match to advance to CLT20 Final

Indian Premier League champions Kolkata Knight Riders kept their unbeaten run going and advanced to the Final of the Champions League T20 with a 7 wicket demolition of the Hobart Hurricanes in Hyderabad on Thursday.

The Hurricanes, who won the toss and chose to bat first, slipped to 13-2 inside the opening three overs after Dom Micheal had been caught and bowled by Andre Russell for naught and star batsman Aiden Blizzard was also sent back for a first ball duck, deemed leg before to Yusuf Pathan. The latter decision was a terrible one from Umpire S Ravi, with the batsman clearly having got an inside edge on the ball.

The Kolkata Knight Riders extended their winning streak to 13 straight matches and confirmed their place in the semi-finals of the Champions League T20 with a thumping 36 run win against the Dolphins.

Winning the toss and opting to make first use of the pitch, the Knight Riders posted an impressive 187 runs on the board for the loss of just 2 wickets. Stars Gautam Gambhir (12) and Jacques Kallis (6) failed to fire, but Robin Uthappa was in top form, making an unbeaten 85 from just 55 balls with the help of 13 boundaries. He shared an unbroken stand for the 3rd wicket with the equally prolific Manish Pandey, who made the most of his opportunity at the top of the order to hit 76 from 47 balls with 5 sixes and an equal number of fours.


Kings XI Punjab cruise to another win, crush Cape Cobras by 7 wickets

Kings XI Punjab continued their unbeaten run in the Champions League T20 booking their place in the semi-finals of the competition in style with another crushing 7 wicket win over the Cape Cobras from South Africa.

The Kings XI Punjab won the toss and once again invited their opposition to make first use of the pitch. The Cobras made a solid start, adding 60 runs for the opening wicket before Hashim Amla fell for an excellent 40 from just 22 balls to Karanveer Singh. His opening partner Richard Levi also made a handy contribution, chipping in with 42 from 37 balls, but the Punjab spinners tied up the Cobras middle order in knots and picked up wickets at regular intervals.


Chennai edge closer to semi-final berth with win over Perth Scorchers

The Chennai Super Kings kept their hopes of making the semi-finals of the Champions League T20 alive with a hard earned win over the Perth Scorchers in Bangalore last night.

Having been put in to bat, Chennai recovered from a poor start to post a competitive score of 155-6 from their 20 overs with Ravindra Jadeja and Mahendra Singh Dhoni scoring the bulk of those runs in the second half of the CSK innings. Chennai had slumped to 79-5 inside the 15th over and looked unlikely to make a significant score before a late flurry from the Indian duo ensured that CSK's bowlers had enough to work with.


Kings XI Punjab rout Northern Districts to book CLT20 semi-final berth

Popular Indian Premier League side Kings XI Punjab booked their place in the semi-finals of the Champions League T20 with a crushing 120 run win over the Northern Districts.

Having been invited to bat first, Kings XI put the game out of sight of the New Zealand champions by posting a mammoth 215 runs on the board. A century stand in just about 8 overs for the opening wicket between Man of the Match Manan Vohra (65 from 32 balls with 8 fours and 3 sixes) and Virender Sehwag (52 from 37 balls with 6 fours and 1 six) set the stage for the hosts, who after a brief hiccup in the middle overs finished strongly as well with David Miller smashing 40 from 18 balls.
