Champions League Twenty20 2009

At the end of Champions League 2009, it is again an Australian side leading the tournament in great style. The final was between New South Wales (Australian League) and Trinidad & Tobago (West-Indian League). With the starred performance by Brett Lee, NSW beat T&T to win inaugural champions league Twenty20.

T&T should should not be disheartened at having lost the final, their only defeat of the tournament. The inexperience team of Daren Ganga have few expectations of performing in such a manner.

For me it is T&T, one of the most unexpected performer of this League. Reaching the finals and beating the well reknown league teams makes it the best team of the tournament (but not the champions). If one looks at the current situation of Westindies International no one can expect that one of WI's league team becomes such an impressive performer of tournament.

The team is a mixture of some international players (Ganga, Bravo, Simmons, Rampaul, Ramdin, Pollard) and some new faces. And the thing is that they are performing well. The new faces of opening pair are succesfull in providing solid opening stands in most of the matches.

All these T&T players that are not well re known before this tournament, but definitely become much more popular after this. They are expected to be the part of other leagues like IPL of current times.
