Another great fair of cricket, Champions League Twenty20, 2014, will commence this month where Mumbai Indians and Lahore Lions will fight for their berth in the next round.

A total of four teams will play three games in the Qualifying round and two of them will embark for the main one.
Mumbai Indians got a severe blow when their regular skipper, Rohit Sharma, was ruled out because of an injury and Kieron Pollard will marshal their troops.

Lasith Malinga, Harbhajan Singh, Jasprit Bumrah and Pragyan Ojha will share the burden of bowling.
Ahmed Shehzad, Umar Akmal, Saad Nasim and Nasir Jamshed are the dependable batsmen of Lahore Lions whereas Mohammad Hafeez is a dangerous all-rounder. Aizaz Cheema, Wahab Riaz, Imran Ali and Adnan Rasool can snatch the match from the rival batsmen with their accurate bowling.
