NEW DELHI: The Champions League Twenty20 tournament is all set to be hosted by India this season, the tournament's governing council said in a press release last time it was played in South Africa last year.

"The Champions League Twenty20 will return to India for the third time in five years in 2013 after the dates and format for this year's tournament were confirmed by the CLT20 Governing Council," the BCCI said in a statement.

"The world's premier domestic T20 competition will be played from 17 September to 6 October. The tournament will follow a similar format to the two previous editions with a Group Stage preceded by a Qualifier.

"A total of 29 matches will be played in the tournament by the best domestic T20 teams from around the world," it added.

"The T20 tournament, which will again feature leading cricketers of the world and some of the established legends of world cricket, will be watched and followed by equally passionate fans," said N Srinivasan, CLT20 Governing Council Chairman.

The CLT20 governing body has also added that the teams will compete for total prize money of $ 6 million.

Trinidad and Tobago, the runners-up in the inaugural edition of the tournament in 2009, have given got wild card  entry into the Group Stage in comin edition after playing in the Qualifier in 2011 and 2012.

"With some of the world's best T20 players, they are a deserving entrant in the main draw after winning the Caribbean T20 championship for a third straight time earlier this year," the BCCI release said. But England team is not going to participate in this year's tournament.

The qualifier will feature four teams - the fourth-ranked team from the IPL 2013, Otago Volts (New Zealand's HRV Cup champions), and the winners of the Sri Lanka and Pakistan domestic T20 competitions.

The teams will play each other only one time, with the top two advancing to the Group Stage.

The Group level will feature ten teams. Group A will include the winner and rank 3rd team in the ongoing Pepsi IPL 2013, Highveld Lions (winner of South Africa's RAM SLAM T20 Challenge), Perth Scorchers (T20 Big Bash League runner-up), and the top team from the CLT20 2013 Qualifier.

Group B will include Brisbane Heat (T20 Big Bash League champion), Trinidad and Tobago (West Indies T20 champion), the runner-up in the Pepsi IPL 2013, Titans (RAM SLAM T20 Challenge runner-up), and the rank2 team from the CLT20 2013 Qualifier.

The team who got the top position in Group A will play the 2nd-ranked team from Group B, and vice versa, in the semi-finals. The CLT20 2013 final will be played on October 6.

The ground of the CLT20 will be chosen by the end of the IPL 2013, once the top three teams in that tournament are known.
