    The logistics in regards to team members for Bangalore isn't that difficult for the most part: Dillon du Preez will play for the Diamond Eagles, Nathan Bracken will play for NSW & Cameron White will play for Victoria.

    For the others, I'm sure Gibbs will play for the Cape Cobras, Nannes for Victoria and Maharoof for Wayamba since they are the teams who hold their contracts and would severly object to the IPL teams having first say.

    So there aren't too many clashes tbh.

    Hopefully the rules will be relaxed in regards to having 3 under-23 players and 7 Indian for the IPL teams.

    If so, you're probably looking at:

    Pragyan
    Mishra
    Nehra

    NSW:
    Hughes

    It was already a de-facto part of the ICC FTP. Australia, South Africa, England and India were going to participate and not play internationals during this time anyway.

    Come rain, sunshine or apocalypse, IPL teams will have the first right of refusal. There is nothing the other teams can do about it, unless they are willing to pay through their nose.

    With who? India owns 50% of CL, CA owns 30% of it, 20% is owned by SA. England are now partners too. They are going to now include sides from NZ, WI and SL soon.

    Who is going to complain?

    Only positive i can see in this tournament is average players of the various nations will have a chance to earn big bucks. Since with the packed international schedule the international players will be hard pressed to be involved in this.

    So the who is the international regulars.

    I strongly suggest you look beyond your ideological standpoint on the matter, and adhere to criticisms towards all these hastily organised T20 tournaments.

    Since regardless of what your view or mine is, what cannot be debated - is that INCREASED player burnout is going to be a serious issue in the future.

    Sure - it can be debated. I'll debate it. I think that stuff is overrated, it's up to the boards to rest their players from the meaningless 7 ODI series.

    I dont mind the concept of a Champions League and Im no fan of ODIs but even the most meaningless ODI 7 game series is lightyears more important than this Champions League.

    This event has to be played as a fesitval and a celebration of world cricket (and players getting paid) as it has no credibility as a 'real' tournament. Almost like an annual 'All-star' cricket festival drawing players and teams from around the globe.
