The International Cricket Council is likely to shift the 2025 Champions Trophy from Pakistan to the West Indies and the United States. The move is likely to come after international cricket's apex body awarded the 2024 hosting rights to England from the US and the West Indies.
The venues in the United States are not ready, and the ICC does not want to take any chances with its flagship event. At the same time, they are also ready to compensate the loss caused to Pakistan financially.
Shifting the Champions Trophy to the West Indies and the USA would pose less risk of financial loss to the ICC as it is not the biggest tournament. The 2007 ODI World Cup was a disaster for the ICC because of India's early exit and the timing of the match was not welcomed by fans from the sub-continent.
