Champions Trophy 2025

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is gearing up for the ICC Champions Trophy 2025 by allocating approximately 17 billion rupees for the upgrade of its stadiums in Karachi, Lahore, and Rawalpindi. The PCB aims to enhance the facilities for spectators and elevate the venues to A-class stadiums. Work on the stadiums has already begun, emphasizing improvements in infrastructure and amenities.

PCB’s plan to host a successful Champions Trophy 2025

In a significant move, the PCB allocated an additional 240 million rupees for women’s cricket, a substantial increase from the previous budget. This investment reflects the board’s commitment to promoting women’s cricket in Pakistan.

The tournament is set to be held entirely in Pakistan and this decision will be further discussed at the ICC’s annual board meeting in Colombo later this month.

Pakistan is scheduled to host Bangladesh, England, and West Indies during the season. Additionally, there will be a tri-series before the CT followed by tours to Australia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe.

The PCB also decided to increase central contract fees and salaries for both women’s cricketers and domestic players. This move aims to improve competition levels and strengthen cricket structures across the country.

Pakistan’s investment in stadium upgrades and women’s cricket underscores its commitment to hosting a successful ICC CT in 2025.
