India’s Participation in Champions Trophy 2025 in Pakistan in Doubt: BCCI Sources Suggest Venue Shift or Hybrid Model

Amidst uncertain diplomatic relations, sources within the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) hint that Team India may opt out of traveling to Pakistan for the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy next year. The possibility of a venue change or adoption of a hybrid model for the event is being considered, as bilateral series with Pakistan remain unlikely in the near future.

Highlighting the necessity of governmental approval for travel, insiders reveal that current relations between India and Pakistan are strained, adding complexity to the decision-making process. While acknowledging the ICC’s jurisdiction over the Champions Trophy, the final decision rests on government directives.

India’s reluctance towards bilateral cricketing engagements with Pakistan is evident, with the last limited-overs series dating back to 2012-13 when Pakistan toured India. Recent instances, such as India’s refusal to participate in the Asia Cup hosted by Pakistan last year, further underscore the challenges in cricketing ties between the two nations.

With cricketing encounters limited to ICC and continental tournaments, the fate of India’s participation in the Champions Trophy remains uncertain, pending further developments and governmental directives.
