ICC Champions Trophy: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) President Rameez Raja is happy to host the ICC Champions Trophy 2025 in Pakistan. Cricket will return to the country after two decades due to this tournament. It is learned that New Zealand and England have canceled their visit to Pakistan due to security concerns. On the occasion, Rameez Raja thanked the ICC.
Afterwards Rameez Raja said .. ‘I am very happy that the ICC has chosen Pakistan as the host country for one of its elite tournaments. By allocating the main tournament to Pakistan, the ICC expressed confidence in our management, operational capabilities and skills. After the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in 2009, Pakistan, which co-hosted the 1996 World Cup with India and Sri Lanka, failed to host many international matches.
Who goes to Pakistan?
The last time the Champions Trophy took place was in 2017 in England. Pakistan won the title by defeating India in the final of the tournament. Again this tournament comes back after eight years. However, New Zealand and England recently withdrew from the Pakistan tour. Then we have to wait and see which countries will come to participate in this tournament. The Indian team, on the other hand, finds it very difficult to move to Pakistan.
The ICC 2024 T20 World Cup will be jointly hosted by the US and the West Indies. This is the first world competition in North America. India will have to host three ICC events in the next round, including the 2026 T20 World Cup and the 503 World Cup in 2031. India will co-host the 50-over World Cup with Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Apart from this, India will host the 2029 Champions Trophy.
