A deliberate attempt to scuttle the ICC Champions Trophy

This appears a deliberate attempt by the Twenty20 Champions League organisers to scuttle the ICC Champions Trophy.

"The second edition of the Twenty20 Champions League will be held in September-October 2009, dealing another blow to the crisis-ridden Champions Trophy in Pakistan.

The dates of the multi-million dollar event clash with the International Cricket Council's decision to hold the Champions Trophy one-day tournament in October 2009.

The Champions Trophy, the International Cricket Council's (ICC) second biggest tournament after the World Cup, was due to be held this month but was cancelled due to security concerns in Pakistan".


One wonders whether India,Australia and South Africa are making a calculated move to ensure that Pakistan never stages the ICC Champions Trophy.

The Champions League dates were announced well before the postponement of the Champions Trophy.

So, it is the ICC and not India,Australia and South Africa, who are making a calculated move to ensure that Pakistan never stages the ICC Champions Trophy!

Cheers,
