Date for Pakistan vs India ICC Champions Trophy 2025 match revealed

LAHORE, JUL 3: The match between Pakistan and India in the ICC Champions Trophy 2025 will take place on March 1, Indian media reports citing ICC Board member.

The match between the traditional rivals is scheduled to be held at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. Meanwhile, India’s matches have been scheduled at a single venue in Lahore.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has shared the Champions Trophy schedule with the ICC, while the BCCI’s approval is pending.

“The PCB has submitted the draft of the 15-match ICC Champions Trophy. Seven games in Lahore, three in Karachi and five in Rawalpindi,” an ICC Board member said.

In the proposed schedule, Group A includes Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, and New Zealand. Group B consists of England, South Africa, Australia, and Afghanistan.

All member countries have confirmed their support for the Champions Trophy to the ICC. BCCI will make a decision on the Champions Trophy after consulting with the government.

Remember, the proposed dates for the Champions Trophy are from 19th February to 9th March, according to Indian media. March 10th has been designated as a reserve day for the Champions Trophy.

Last month, the PCB sent the schedule of next year’s Champions Trophy to the ICC for final approval where it was stated that the tournament will be held in Karachi, Lahore and Rawalpindi.

Seven matches, including the final, will be held in Lahore. Karachi’s National Stadium will host the opening match and a semi-final. There will be a total of three matches in Karachi. Rawalpindi will host five matches, including a semi-final.

This event will mark the return of the ICC Champions Trophy after an eight-year hiatus, with its last occurrence in 2017, when Pakistan emerged victorious by defeating India in the final.
