This is going to boringgg....

Only Pakistanis will enjoy this tournament because their players don't get invited to other tournaments LOL!

Where is Warner, Pollard, Mcullum, Bravo, Ponting, Clarke, Hussey? Gibbs, Pieterson, Morkel????? So many big players missing but full of Pakistanis and unknown West Indies players!!!

anyone realize in all articles, the franchises are referred by the province names(basnahira,uva,ruhuna etc) and not the childish "animal" names given by the SLC??? may b the owners will change the names and still keep the province name :)

@nightrider no point of picking up Warner, Pollard, Mcullum, Bravo,Hussey ( or any player from top 4 IPL teams) since they will not be available in CLT20 & Morkel is playing for Kandurata .. plus this is not like IPL .the teams fully changed in the next year( i think they can keep the icon player for the next year,but not sure about it ) , a new lottery will held in next year & new set of players so no need to be rushed to buy players in advance like they do it in IPL & BPL.
