Is India trying to stop Pakistan from hosting ICC Champions Trophy?

India wants to deprive Pakistan of the right to host the International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy 2025, along with the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) Asia Cup 2023, Daily Jang, citing Indian media, reported on Saturday.

According to Indian reports, it will be “difficult” for the Indian team to visit Pakistan for the Asia Cup and the Champions Trophy in 2025.

A senior official of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), according to Indian media, said: “We will now try to shift the hosting of the Champions Trophy outside Pakistan. The hosting of the Asia Cup is out of Pakistan’s hands.”

The news comes a few days after a delegation from the International Cricket Council (ICC) expressed “satisfaction” with Pakistan’s capability to host the ICC Champions Trophy 2025.

Moreover, during its visit, the ICC delegation hinted at playing a mediating role between the PCB and the BCCI in the ongoing controversy surrounding the venue of the Asia Cup that was scheduled to be held in Pakistan.

The delegation was present in Lahore to obtain assurances from the PCB regarding the Pakistani team’s involvement in the ICC Cricket World Cup scheduled for October-November.

The ICC wants PCB not to insist on the implementation of a hybrid model for their matches in the World Cup.
