Manish Pandey, who did have a good IPL second season which was played in South Africa, is himself expecting a berth in Team India through the tournament.

“Champions League Twenty20 is a big stage for youngsters like me," Pandey said.

Talking about the Royal Challengers Bangalore, which is the much talked Indian team in the CLT20 2010 game, he said, “I think the team is doing very well, it is gelling well which is evident from the results of our practice matches. So far we have won all three of our practice games."

When asked about the comparing IPL and CLT20, the right hand batsman said, “There is nothing much difference in IPL and CLT20 but I feel CLT20 is step ahead of IPL because here you have to compete against the best of the world."
