    *Official* Champions Trophy Discussion Thread

    The Champions Trophy, delayed due to sponsorship disputes, will begin during the second week of the upcoming season. The tournament will be held in India and features 12 teams across four pools. Round 1 involves only Pools A and B (the bottom-6-ranked teams in ODI cricket):

    Pool A
    India
    Bangladesh
    Kenya

    Pool B
    West Indies

    Zimbabwe

    Competition takes place in Round Robin fashion and the top team in each of Pool A and Pool B advances to the second round to meet the top 6 and form an 8-team competition.
    Points are as such: 2 for a win, 1 for a tie or no result.
    The second round involves Round Robin play with the following groups:

    Pool C
    Australia
    Cricket Web XI

    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
