Cricket News sort by Champions League T20 2012

Like the other clash of the day, the Mumbai Indians vs Sydney Sixers contest is also insignificant in terms of having an impact on the semis equation.

Kolkata Knight Riders, the defending IPL Champions salvaged some pride by finally tasting their first victory of the CLT20 2012. The Knight Riders crushed Titans by a massive margin of 99 runs to end the latter’s winning streak.

Delhi Daredevils managed to pull off a nervous 3-wicket win in the final over against Perth Scorchers to keep their hopes alive of reaching the Semi Finals.

Home team Titans have had an excellent run in the tournament so far, with two wins in two games. Another victory and they will be through to the semis, and deservedly so.

The match between Perth Scorchers and Delhi Daredevils will be a crucial one for the former since they are yet to open their account in the series.

It was a dead rubber between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians as both the teams already knew that they were out of the CLT20.

Highveld Lions have made it into the Semi Finals from Group B joining the Sydney Sixers after beating Yorkshire by 5 wickets at Johannesburg.

So much was expected of Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians at the start of the CLT20. In fact, both were being tipped as favourites – one being a past winner and other being defending champs.

The CLT20 hasn’t produced a lot of exciting games thus far, and rain washing out three night games in a row has only proved to be a dampener.
