The Evening Chronicle, now referred to in print as The Chronicle, is a daily newspaper produced in Newcastle upon Tyne, covering Tyne and Wear, southern Northumberland and northern County Durham. The Evening Chronicle is published by a division of Reach plc.. It has a circulation of 26,811 as of 2016, down −12.3% year on year. The Chronicle originated as the Newcastle Chronicle, founded in 1764 as a weekly newspaper by Thomas Stack; the paper was owned by his descendants until 1850, when it was sold to a consortium led by Mark William Lambert, a local businessman. The repeal of the taxes on newspapers in 1855, along with the hiring of new journalists and the installation of a new printing press created an opportunity to expand the newspaper. On 1 May 1858 the Newcastle Daily Chronicle was launched, its editor was Joseph Cowen, who became the sole owner at the end of 1859. He soon turned the Chronicle into the most successful newspaper in north-eastern England and one of the most successful provincial newspapers of the 19th century.
In April 2013 the Evening Chronicle became known as The Chronicle Live. The Chronicle was a broadsheet from its inception until 8 October 1997, when switched to become a tabloid. Prior to 2007 the paper was published twice daily, with an evening edition on sale from the late afternoon, it concentrates on local news, human interest stories and sport, with a particular emphasis on Newcastle United F. C. A jobs supplement increases the paper's circulation every Thursday. In October 2013, the Chronicle and its sister publications The Journal and Sunday Sun were banned from Newcastle United F. C. due to the papers' coverage of a fans' protest march. The ban was withdrawn. Owned by Reach plc, the Chronicle is the sister publication of another North East newspaper The Journal; the two papers once complemented each other with The Journal being published in the morning and the Chronicle in the afternoon, though both titles are now printed overnight and are on newstands along with national titles. In 2007, a local free paper The Herald and Post was rebranded under the Chronicle banner, as Chronicle Extra.
The Chronicle focuses on all local news and sport in the North East but in particular the local Premier League football side Newcastle United. North East sport was covered by The Pink from 1895 to 2005; the paper was issued after the days football business had concluded on a Saturday. The last edition was published on 17 December 2005.

The 2012 Champions League Twenty20 was the fourth edition of the Champions League Twenty20, an international Twenty20 cricket tournament. It was held in South Africa from 9 to 28 October 2012; this edition was significant for being the first to feature a Pakistani team. This was the first season to have Karbonn Mobiles as the title sponsor, they replaced Nokia. The Sydney Sixers emerged the winners of the tournament. Since the previous edition, three Test-playing nations introduced new premier Twenty20 tournaments. Australia created the Big Bash League, which began in December 2011. Compared to the previous KFC Twenty20 Big Bash, it has city-based franchise teams, more matches and allows two overseas players in the team, it was well received with high attendance and good television viewership. The inaugural season of the Sri Lanka Premier League was held in August 2012 and featured new owned city-based franchise teams and participation from overseas players. Sri Lanka's previous Twenty20 tournament had a low profile and a primary focus on providing opportunities for players.
Bangladesh, the lowest ranked in Test cricket, created the Bangladesh Premier League, their first premier Twenty20 tournament, in February 2012. However, their teams were not considered for the CLT20. Other nations made no major changes to their tournaments. South Africa's MiWay T20 Challenge included a new team to give exposure to more players but was disbanded after the season. In the four weeks directly preceding the CLT20, the only international cricket played was in the Twenty20 format, including the 2012 ICC World Twenty20, which ran for 20 days and ended 2 days before the CLT20 started; as preparations for the tournament, the Trinidad and Tobago team will play two Twenty20 competitions, both held at their home ground of Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain and Tobago. They competed in the "Twenty20 for 50" competition, held 24 to 26 August and involving Jamaica and two all-star teams—the Daren Ganga XI and the Brian Lara XI. T&T won all their matches. From 6 to 8 September, T&T will play the "Asia vs the Caribbean" tournament involving the national teams of Barbados and Bangladesh.
T&T, Afghanistan and Bangladesh came third on net run rate. The T&T government offered $5 million in funding to prepare the team for the tournament. During the Sialkot Stallions' preparations, they encountered issues when the Pakistan Cricket Board appointed Naushad Ali to replace Naeem Akhtar as team manager; the team were unhappy with the decision as Akhtar had held the position for a long time and knew the team well. The decision affected their preparations; the PCB replaced Ali with Zaheer Abbas. The tournament will feature a qualifying stage, introduced in the 2011 edition; as with all previous editions, the tournament format was changed: only two teams qualify from the qualifying stage to the group stage. Six teams participate in the qualifying stage, from which two teams advance to the group stage to join eight direct entrants; the top four teams from the group stage advance to the knockout stage. The qualifying and group stages have the teams divided into two equal groups, with each playing a round-robin tournament, the top two teams of each group advance to the next stage.
The knockout stage consists of two semi-finals, with the top team of one group facing the second from the other. The winners of the semi-finals play the grand final to determine the winners of the competition. Points awarded in the qualifying and group stages: Same as previous editions, the total prize money for the competition is US$6 million. In addition to the prize money, each team receives a participation fee of $500,000; the prize money will be distributed as follows: $200,000 – Each team eliminated in the group stage $500,000 – Each semi-finalist $1.3 million – Runners-up $2.5 million – Winners This tournament will feature a team from Pakistan for the first time. Pakistan's participation had not been considered for past editions of the tournament due to the hostility between India and Pakistan since the 2008 Mumbai attacks; the attacks were responsible for the cancellation of the planned first edition of the tournament in 2008, for which a Pakistan team had qualified. Representation from Australia changes to teams from the Big Bash League, which replaced their previous premier Twenty20 tournament and features new city-based teams instead of the previous first-class teams.
Representation from Sri Lanka changes to teams from the Sri Lanka Premier League, which features franchise teams. While the 2011 edition had the fourth-placed Indian team play the qualifying stage, this year's team, the Mumbai Indians, directly qualified for the main tournament on account of being the defending champions; this edition will not feature the Royal Challengers Bangalore, who participated in all the previous editions. The New South Wales Blues, who won the 2009 tournament, no longer play Twenty20 cricket. However, the Sydney Sixers contain many former Blues players in their squad, including nine who were in the Blues' squad from the 2011 tournament; as with previous editions, several players qualified for the tournament with multiple teams, allowing them to play for the teams of their choosing. Should a player decline the option of playing for his "home" team, his chosen team must pay the "home" team a compensation fee of $150,000. Nine players were nominated in preliminary squad of more than one team and all of them chose to play for their Indian Premier League teams.
As a result, teams lost players. Amongst these teams and Tobago were determined to have
