Pakistan’s Cricket Governing Body, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has received some positive-hints about the Indian Cricket team agreeing to visit Pakistan for ICC’s Champions Trophy 2025 event, the sources told Geo-News.

According to some news reports, the International Cricket Council (ICC) will share the schedule of the Champions Trophy with the other participating Cricket Boards in the final week of June.

The PCB had previously sent the Champions Trophy schedule with the ICC few-weeks ago and the Cricketing Governing-Body decided not to make any changes in the PCB’s schedule after reviewing it carefully and thoroughly.

The 2025 Champions Trophy, hosted by 2017 winners Pakistan, will include the likes of India, England and Australia. Bangladesh, New Zealand, Afghanistan and South Africa will also participate in next year’s mega event.

The final of the tournament and the matches of the Indian Cricket Team will be held in the city of Lahore. Currently, the BCCI have not given an official statement regarding them not agreeing to send the Indian Cricket Team to Pakistan.

Except the Indians, the remaining seven teams have played matches in Pakistan and they are very keen on playing the Champions Trophy in Pakistan as well. If the other participating nations agree to travel to Pakistan for next year’s mega event, then the Men in Blue’s last minute refusal to not travel to their neighbouring country will be really difficult to get accepted.

According to the PCB’s tentative schedule, the matches of the upcoming tournament will be played in the cities of Lahore, Karachi and Rawalpindi between 19th February to 9th March.
The city of Lahore will play host to seven games, including the all-important final.

The opening match of the tournament will be played in the National Stadium of Karachi while one semi-final will be played at the same venue as well. In short, three matches will be played in Karachi. The city of Rawalpindi will play host to five encounters, including the other semi-final.

Notably , next year’s Champions Trophy will mark the return of the tournament after an absence of eight long years. The previous edition of the 50-over tournament was played in 2017 where Pakistan ended up lifting the trophy by defeating the Virat Kohli-led team in the final.
