Srinivasan, who is also the president of the BCCI.
The tournament is held between September and October for a period of two to three weeks in either India or South Africa. It has a total prize pool of US$6 million, with the winning team receiving $2.5 million, the highest for a club cricket tournament in history.
The fifth addition of the Champions League Twenty20 will return to India for the third time in five years in 2013 and take place from Sep 17 to Oct 6.
