2011 Champions League Twenty20
v · d · e

The Champions League Twenty20 is an international Twenty20 cricket competition between club teams from India, Australia, England, South Africa, Sri Lanka, New Zealand and West Indies. The Champions League Twenty20 is chaired by Shashank Manohar, who is the President of the BCCI.

The competition was launched in 2008 as a response to the success of national Twenty20 domestic cricket leagues, most notably the Indian Premier League.[1] The first edition was set to take place from late September to early October 2008 in India, after the tournament organisers resolved various problems that had put the inaugural tournament under some doubt,[2] but it was later announced that the tournament would be held from December 3 to December 10, 2008.[3] The tournament was postponed again following terrorist attacks in Mumbai in November 2008[4] and was later cancelled.[5]

The first tournament was then held in October 2009. Indian mobile service Bharti Airtel bought the title sponsorship rights for the 2009 Champions League for the reported amount of Indian Rupee symbol.svg170cr (USD 38.4 million).[6] 2011 season will be played in September–October in India.[7] On 3 August 2011, title sponsor Airtel ended its three-year deal worth Indian Rupee symbol.svg150-crore (USD 40 million) after just two years, citing low viewership.[8] Nokia has signed a four-year deal for title sponsorship in August 2011.[9]

Background

An international tournament for domestic cricket teams is believed to have been first mooted by Lalit Modi, vice-president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in 1996. Modi was also the chairman and commissioner on the IPL.[10] The launch and subsequent success of Twenty20 cricket some years later was the influence behind a serious effort to get such a tournament off the ground. Twenty20 cricket was launched by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) in 2003.[11] Its launch was a result of a long-term decline in the popularity of county championship and domestic limited-overs cricket. By reducing the number of overs per innings to twenty and by placing a three hour limit on matches, the format was designed to attract a younger crowd and to boost attendances.[11] Twenty20 proved a success, with an international version, International 20:20 Club Championship, launched in 2005 and a World Twenty20 Competition held in September 2007. This proved much more popular than the 50 over Cricket World Cup had been just five months previously.[12] The following year, the Indian Premier League (IPL) was launched, proving that there could be a market for a big-spending domestic Twenty20 cricket league.[13] The success of Twenty20 and the IPL lead many commentators to suggest that other forms of cricket would suffer, with some worrying about the effect of the popular fast-paced 'slogging' game on players' abilities in Test cricket.[13][14]

Immediately after the end of the first series of the IPL, the cricket authorities in India, Australia and South Africa entered into discussions to create a new international club competition, to capitalize on this success.[1] The new tournament's $2.5m winning prize was described as "unprecedented" in cricket.[1] A number of different formats for the tournament were considered, with original proposals containing a much lower prize fund.[15] The T20 Champions League's creation was announced on 7 June 2008, along with the announcement of planned restructuring of some of the domestic cricket tournaments involved, including the introduction of franchising in South Africa, England and Australia.[10]

Theme song

The theme song for the Champions League Twenty20 is composed and performed by A.R.Rahman.[20] This was the first song composed by Rahman for a sporting event.[original research?]

In the 2010 edition at South Africa Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias proposed a new theme song that was played often throughout the league along with Rahman's.[citation needed]
