Champions League Twenty20[edit]

Sialkot Stallions were among eight teams from around the world to secure a berth for the 2008 Champions League Twenty20 that was to be held in India. However, the tournament was cancelled due to 2008 Mumbai Attacks.

The Stallions became the first Pakistan domestic team to officially receive an invitation to play in the Champions League Twenty20, to be held in the South Africa in 2012.[1] Later on, they got the confirmation from the CLT20's Governing Council after it approved the BCCI's invitation to Sialkot Stallions for participation in CLT20.[2] Then, it was revealed that the Stallions will have to compete (with five other teams from different countries) in Qualifier tournament for two available positions in the Champions League.
