ICC chairman Greg Barclay accepted that India’s tour in Pakistan for the 2025 Champions Trophy would not be easy and let’s hope that the geopolitical tensions between the neighboring countries remain negative.

The ICC confirmed the 14 host countries of ICC men’s white-ball events for the next 10 years that is from 2024- 2031. The Champions Trophy will be held in Pakistan in 2025.

In the past two years, all international teams are having workload management, to make sure that players are there for the selection in ICC events. CEO of ICC Geoff Allardice said he thinks bilateral series is here to stay.

Allardice stated “I do not think the charm of bilateral cricket will go away. You will see a different range of players, in particular at the moment where people are moving in and out of bubbles, you will see players rotated a little more than normal time but judging by the reaction to the series that recently concluded in India, it does not look like that the appeal of bilateral cricket has diminished much at all,” 

The International Cricket Council (ICC) wants cricket to be included in the Olympics. The senior management of ICC thinks that the other formats won’t have the same space.

Allardice further added “ICC cricket calendar is shaped across all three formats. I know in some of our developing countries, T20 cricket has been more of a focus. Each country has been given status for its men’s and women’s events. There has been a global ranking system, but in certainly the developed or more traditional countries, there is a strong programme for three formats of the game,”
