Pakistan has got the right to host the ICC Champions Trophy to be held in the year 2025, but once again ICC can surprise Pakistan. In fact, if the ICC Champions Trophy 2025 is held only in Pakistan, Team India will not tour Pakistan for this tournament. Due to which ICC can snatch the hosting of Champions Trophy 2025 from Pakistan. This is not the first time that Pakistan is going to lose the hosting of a major tournament. Earlier, Team India had also refused to tour Pakistan for Asia Cup 2022.

ICC will not put pressure on BCCI

Actually, if Team India tours Pakistan then BCCI will have to take permission from the Government of India. Team India will not tour Pakistan for any major tournament without the permission of the government. According to PTI report, cricket board members of every country can raise this issue in the ICC meeting to be held in Dubai. Whatever will be voted on. But if the government of any country says that its team will not play there, then ICC will not force it, but ICC will definitely find an alternative. The ICC does not want board members to go against the instructions issued by their government.

In fact, considering the circumstances on the border of both the countries and for security reasons, the Indian government does not allow Team India to go to Pakistan. No bilateral series has been seen between India and Pakistan for many years. These two teams only now face each other in any major ICC tournament. However, before this the Pakistan team had toured India during the ODI World Cup 2023.

But before that, Team India had not toured Pakistan during Asia Cup 2022, after which ICC shifted the venue of the tournament to Sri Lanka and Team India played all the matches of its Asia Cup tournament in Sri Lanka. Now both these teams will be seen playing in the T20 World Cup 2024 to be held in June. However, this time hosting the Champions Trophy 2025 is very important for Pakistan and the Pakistan Cricket Board can have a long discussion with the ICC regarding this.
