Champions League Twenty20, Qualifying Pool 2: Trinidad & Tobago v Uva Next at Johannesburg, Oct 11, 2012
Champions League Twenty20 - Qualifying Pool 2
No result
Played at New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg (neutral venue)
11 October 2012 (20-over match)

The T and T openers are out. Oram to run in with the new ball on this grassy pitch.

Toss: Uva Next have won the toss and they will bowl first. Thilina Kandamby announced that Ashan Priyanjan and Seekuge Prasanna are playing. Charith Jayampathi and Chintaka Jayasinghe are not playing.

For Trinidad, Rampaul, Badree, Emrit and Barath are sitting out today. The team is updated above.

The first of the mails slamming the inconsequential match, from Ram: "Can they play a "super over" and finish off the match? Or "invent" some other format to experiment? "

Priyank has a different view: "Inconsequential matches ? Really ? I would say, it is a great opportunity for young players to impress their respective boards and more importantly IPL franchisees."

Mubarak: "So Priyank thinks its more important to impress IPL franchises than national cricket boards. Sad state of affairs!!"

12.50pm: Good day and welcome to the coverage of Part 1 of today's dead rubber, between Uva Next and Trinidad and Tobago. Both teams have been knocked out, as have the other two teams playing today - Hampshire and Sialkot Stallions. A day of no consequence to all teams and the tournament itself. Why should they bother showing up, you might ask. There's a match to be won, for pride only.

Mickey: "Since this is a pointless game, I think we should throw up some ideas on re-formatting this flawed tournament. Teams from 4 of the 8 test playing nations having to qualify seems ridiculous whilst 4 of the IPL sides qualifying automatically is nothing short of a farce. Domestic champions should qualify by right for a start. About time this tournament became a proper Champions League."

Gert: "I agree with Mickey. A champions league should be the top domestic team from each test playing nation, and maybe a qualifying round for the number 2's, but not really needed. At the moment it looks like the tournament is designed to let an IPL team win. My fav's for this is year are Lions, Perth, and after yesterday Auckland."
