The International Cricket Council (ICC) is likely to move out the 2025 Champions Trophy from Pakistan to the West Indies and the United States of America.
The apex body of international cricket will likely take this step after giving the hosting rights of 2024 T20 World Cup to England from the USA and West Indies.
However, Pakistan will receive monetary compensation for the losses it would suffer due to Champions Trophy moving out of Pakistan.
“A likely three-way barter of International Cricket Council (ICC) events between 2024 and 2025 is on the cards. Word coming out of the ICC corridors is that in return for letting go of the 2024 T20 World Cup in the West Indies and the United States, these co-hosts could be compensated with another event of similar stature at a later stage,” the report stated.
“The 2025 ICC Champions Trophy in Pakistan could turn out to be the event that goes to the West Indies and the United States as compensation for letting go of the 2024 T20 World Cup and in return, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) may get compensated monetarily for the loss.
“It is understood that right now this is merely a subject of verbal discussion between the respective cricket boards, the ICC and other stakeholders. It is also learnt that the broadcasters for the next ICC media rights cycle are in agreement with the proposed idea.”
