Champions League Twenty20 - Qualifying Pool 2

Uva Next v Yorkshire

Yorkshire won by 5 wickets (with 3 balls remaining)

Joe Root will open the bowling for Yorkshire, with offspin on a green pitch. Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Dilshan Munaweera are Uva's openers. Munaweera opened in a few games for Sri Lanka at the World Twenty20.

1.15 pm Not too long to go until the start of the game now - 15 minutes. Meanwhile, Kevin Pietersen has said this on Twitter: "So good to have a bat back in my hands this am.. Time to KLAP IT!! #CLT20." He's in South Africa as well, with Delhi Daredevils. KP spent the WT20 in the television studio.

1.00 pm The pitch has a green tinge to it, it's also an overcast day, should be good for bowling quick. I'd love to say there are at least 100 people at Wanderers for the start of the game, but there isn't. The ground is empty.

Andrew Gale has won the toss and Yorkshire will bowl. Thilina Kandamby says Uva Next would have liked to bowl as well. Uva Next can play with four foreigners in their XI.

Rama: "How does it matter for the number of people watching on the ground as long as people worldwide are glued to cricinfo."

Stevo: "Imagine the good that prize money would do if it went to Yorkshire, Hampshire or one of the other smaller franchises. Pity it'll probably go to one of the IPL teams. Come on any team not from India!!"

Kapil: "Come on guys.. you cannot expect Saffas to rush out and support 2 teams which they have no info about... believe the crowds will improve once the tournament starts and you see better known teams."

12.50 pm It was raining in Johannesburg earlier and the square was covered, but it isn't raining at the moment. So why does the Champions League matter? Apart from the honour of winning an international tournament, the winner takes home $2 million. You read that right.

Here's the preview for today's game, it's between a club that was formed in 1863 and a team that was born in 2012.

Firdose Moonda is our reporter at the Champions League T20 and she says that Uva Next promise to improve the record of Sri Lankan sides in the tournament. This could be the last time English counties appear in the CLT20, and the counties are keen to make an impression.

12.45 pm Good day, one Twenty20 tournament ends and another begins. Less than 48 hours after West Indies became World Twenty20 champions in Colombo, the Champions League T20 kicks off in South Africa. It begins with a three-day qualifying stage to determine the two domestic teams that will join the eight from India, Australia and South Africa in the main draw.

Uva Next, the Sri Lanka Premier League Champions, are playing Yorkshire, who were runners-up in England's Friends Life t20 at Wanderers in Johannesburg. If you're wondering who plays for Uva Next, they have Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Fawad Alam, Umar Gul, Jacob Oram and Andrew McDonald. Among some of the familiar Sri Lankans are - Dilshan Munaweera, Dilhara Fernando and Thilina Kandamby, the captain.

Yorkshire have the South African batsman David Miller in their line-up, as well as former Australia opener Phil Jaques.

Khwaja: "Is Chris 'gangnam' Gayle representing any of these CL T20 teams? If not, then what a pity for the cricket fans worldwide!" No he isn't, he was part of Uva's original team but didn't play for them in the SLPL because of an injury I think.

Sidebottom to Kandamby, 1 run, an accurate yorker, which Kandamby manages to dig out towards square leg

Ben: "I think Uva are well short of a good total. Scores in Jo'burg are often high, 140ish suggests its almost as bowler friendly as the World T20 final wicket which was unplayable against spin. Yorkshire to win with 15-20 balls to spare."

Sidebottom to Senanayake, OUT, the stumps are an utter mess. Sidebottom went round the wicket and bowled the ball full and straight, the right-hander backed away towards leg to hit through the off and missed. Sidebottom uprooted off and middle stumps

SMSM Senanayake b Sidebottom 9 (10m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

Umar Gul is the new batsman. Can he do in South Africa what he did against South Africa at the WT20?

19.4

Sidebottom to Umar Gul, 1 run, in the blockhole once again, Gul drives towards long off

19.5

Sidebottom to Kandamby, 3 runs, a low full toss and Kandamby drills it down the ground, straight past the bowler, Ballance sprints to his right from long on and dives to save the boundary in the nick of time

19.6

Sidebottom to Umar Gul, 1 run, Gul backs away and drives the full ball through cover but there's a fielder in the deep, Gul runs off the field to get ready for a bowl

3.00pm Uva finish with 150 after a patchy batting performance. The outfield is fast and the ball travels through the air here, the pitch is pretty true as well. Should be a tight chase. David Miller will be the key. I'll be back in ten minutes for Yorkshire's reply.
