Pakistan Cricket Board signs agreement to host ICC Champions Trophy 2025

The Pakistan Cricket Board confirmed they have signed an agreement with the International Cricket Council (ICC) to host the ICC Champions Trophy 2025. 

Chairman of the cricket board Zaka Ashraf was joined by ICC General Counsel Jonathan Hall in Dubai at the signing of the hosting rights to Pakistan, per the statement released by the PCB. 

The cricket board has already informed the government that foolproof security should be provided for the visiting teams during the major international event. 

In a meeting with Zaka Ashraf, Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar has assured of robust security measures for the ODI tournament. 

The ICC Champions Trophy was last held in England in 2017, with Pakistan winning the title after beating arch-rivals India in the final. 

The marquee event is now set to return in 2025 after an eight-year gap. 

Apart from the Green Shirts, India, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, England, Afghanistan and Bangladesh are the other teams who will be participating in the ICC event. 

The first Champions Trophy took place in 1998, and since then, there have been seven more editions of the tournament. 

Australia and India are the two most successful teams in the history of the competition, with each side winning two titles.
