Middlesex chief executive Vinny Codrington this week said the Lord's club will not be financially affected by the postponement of the Champions League.
The inaugural tournament in India has been put back to October 2009 after the recent terror attacks in Mumbai.
"We didn't budget for the fact we were going to win the Twenty20, which might sound negative but it is realistic," said Codrington.
"So whatever we were going to do was going to be icing on the cake."

"The game as a whole is pretty robust, very strong and despite the credit crunch I think that it's still in good shape and will remain so," he said.
"Clearly, if Sir Allen decides to cut his losses I think that's a blow to the game particularly in the West Indies and to English cricket because we put a lot of store into it."
