The Celebrity Cricket League (CCL) is a men’s cricket league in India that was introduced in 2011 as an entertainment league with an amateur status. It features players from both Bollywood and regional cinema industries across India. Initially, the league began with four teams in its inaugural CCL T20 edition in 2011. However, it has now expanded to eight teams, and the tournament lasts for a month each season.
The CCL began with four teams in 2011, but it has since grown to include six, seven, or eight teams in subsequent editions. The first six seasons of the league were played in T20 format. However, from the 2017 edition onwards, the competition is being held in T10 format. Seasons 2, 7, and 8 were contested by six teams, while seasons 3, 4, 5, and 6 featured eight teams competing for the championship. The inaugural season of the league was relatively brief, with only four teams participating in the tournament.
