Champions League part of ICC calendar
Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman and commissioner Lalit Modi said the Twenty20 Champions League has been provided a slot in the International Cricket Council's (ICC) calendar.
"The Champions League has already been slotted in the ICC's FTP (Future Tours Programme). IPL and other domestic tournaments around the world have to find their own windows. We haven't asked for an FTP commitment as far as that is concerned.
"For an international tournament of this magnitude and this quality, we are working with all the member countries and the ICC and we have together come out with the dates of the Champions League to benefit everybody," Modi was quoted as saying in the IPL official website Monday.
