Champions League Twenty20: No qualifying prize money for counties in the build-up to next year’s tournament
Countie told no prize money is available for participating in new qualifying tournament for the Champions League Twenty20.
The winners and runners-up of this season’s Friends Life T20 will compete in a six-team qualifying tournament in Hyderabad from Sept 19-21 along with Auckland Aces, Kolkata Knight Riders, Trinidad and Tobago and a yet-to-be-confirmed side from Sri Lanka. Three of the qualifiers will progress to the Champions League proper from Sept 23-Oct 9, where they will play three sides from the IPL and two each from Australia and South Africa.
The English participants, who will not be known until T20 finals day at Edgbaston on August 27, will receive a participation fee of £310,600 , a chunk of which will go to the England and Wales Cricket Board with the rest to be split between the club and players.
But no prize money fund has been provided for the qualifying tournament which means that the three three sides who fail to progress to the main competition will return home with only appearance money.
