This year’s Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) will be held in India, putting an end to rumours and speculation that it was likely to be hosted by the United Arab Emirates.
According to Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary, Sanjay Patel, the decision was taken by the CLT20 governing council during their meeting in Melbourne last week.
“The venues and the dates will soon be finalised but it will be played in India,” Patel said.
According to sources, the sixth edition of the tournament is likely to start on September 7, and the venues will be finalised based on the weather forecasts.
This comes after a number of CLT20 fixtures had to be rescheduled last year due to heavy rain.
