Groups announced for ICC Champions Trophy 2025

Cricket fans, get excited! The prestigious ICC Champions Trophy is returning in February and March of 2025, with Pakistan as the host nation. This highly anticipated event will feature the top eight One Day International (ODI) men’s national teams battling it out for the championship title.

There’s a special spark in this year’s Champions Trophy – India and Pakistan are scheduled for a face-off! Fresh off their T20 World Cup win, the Indian team is set to take on their arch-rivals on Pakistani soil. However, due to ongoing political tensions, there might be a chance India won’t be able to travel to Pakistan. If that happens, the tournament location could change.

The teams who are eligible for the Champions Trophy are listed below:

  • India
  • Pakistan (Host)
  • Bangladesh
  • New Zealand
  • Afghanistan
  • South Africa
  • Australia
  • England

Here’s what we know so far:

  • Eight Teams, Two Groups: The competition will feature the best ODI teams, including India (if they participate), Pakistan (the host), Bangladesh, New Zealand, Afghanistan, South Africa, Australia, and England. These teams are divided into two groups of four, playing a round-robin format within their group.
  • Knockout Stage: After the group stage, the top two teams from each group will advance to the semi-finals. The winners of the semi-finals will then clash in the grand finale for the coveted Champions Trophy title.

The tournament kicks off on February 19th, 2025, and concludes on March 9th, with a reserve day set aside for the final match. The exact locations for the matches haven’t been confirmed yet, but Pakistan is gearing up to host the event across various venues, including a brand new high-tech stadium in Islamabad.
