Pakistan will host the next ICC event that is Champions Trophy 2025. And for the tournament Pakistan Cricket Board released a draft schedule. The tournament will be played from February 19 to March 9 next year, with March 10 being the 'reserve day'. It is learned that PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi has submitted the schedule of 15 matches, in which India's matches have been held in Lahore due to security and 'logistical' reasons.

PCB has kept the match between arch-rivals India and Pakistan on March 1 in the temporary schedule of the Champions Trophy. BCCI (Indian Cricket Board) has not yet agreed to this. A senior member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) board gave this information on Wednesday.

Proposed Vanues for the Tournament
The ICC board member said, 'The PCB has submitted the draft schedule of 15 matches of the ICC Champions Trophy, in which seven matches have been scheduled in Lahore, three matches in Karachi and five matches in Rawalpindi. The first match has been held in Karachi while the two semi-finals will be held in Karachi and Rawalpindi while the final will be held in Lahore. All India matches (including the semi-finals in case the team qualifies) have been held in Lahore.

Two Groups for Eight Teams
Two groups have been made for the Champions Trophy. India and Pakistan have been placed in Group A. Apart from these two teams, Bangladesh and New Zealand are also there. Group B includes teams from Australia, South Africa, England and Afghanistan. Recently, at the ICC event, Head Chris Tetley met PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi in ​​Islamabad.

No reply has been given by BCCI yet
Before this ChampionsTrophy, Pakistan had last hosted the Asia Cup in the year 2023, which was played under the hybrid model. During this period, India played its matches in Sri Lanka. This was done because the government had refused to allow the players to go to Pakistan.

The source said that all the board heads of the countries participating in the ICC Champions Trophy, in which the BCCI is not included as of now, have assured their support. BCCI will talk to its Indian government and give an update to ICC. Now it will be interesting to see when and if BCCI takes the final decision on this matter.
