England Cricket News: Counties to shun Champions League | ESPN Cricinfo

A desire to preserve the primacy of Championship cricket is likely to see England's first-class counties opting out of the Champions League and returning to a 50-over domestic one-day competition.

While Yorkshire and Hampshire will shortly depart to participate in this year's Champions League it is quite possible that it will be the last time that the counties are involved. They have already decided not to participate in 2013 and, while the door is not closed on future involvement, it will require the Champions League to be rescheduled to start a couple of weeks later so as not to clash with the finale of the County Championship.
