2025 Champions Trophy would be the first major tournament to be played in Pakistan since the 1996 World Cup which was won by Sri Lanka. The ICC Champions Trophy which was scheduled to be played in Pakistan in 2009 was shifted to England. The tournament was taken out of Pakistan after Australia, England and New Zealand refused to tour Pakistan over security fears months following an attack on the Sri Lankan team in Lahore.
Recently, the New Zealand and England teams had cancelled their tour to Pakistan as well.
India and Sri Lanka will jointly host the T20 World Cup 2026 and Namibia will be the host for the first time with Zimbabwe and South Africa in the 50-over World Cup 2027. Zimbabwe and South Africa had earlier hosted the World Cup in 2003.
Also, the 2031 Men’s Cricket World Cup will be played in India and Bangladesh.
