ICC Champions Trophy 2025: India to play against Pakistan in Lahore?

IND vs PAK Champions Trophy 2025

In a low-scoring thriller at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on Sunday, India narrowly defeated Pakistan by 6 runs in their T20 World Cup group-stage match. Despite Pakistan’s shaky start to the tournament, reducing the chances of another face-off in the knockouts, cricket enthusiasts can look forward to their next clash in about eight months during the 2025 Champions Trophy in Lahore.

India vs Pakistan in Lahore for ICC Champions Trophy 2025?

The report also highlighted that Lahore, Karachi, and Rawalpindi have been chosen as the three venues for the 15-match event. Lahore is expected to host the highly anticipated game between India and Pakistan. However, the Indian team’s participation in Pakistan hinges on government approval. Due to past and ongoing political tensions, India has not played in Pakistan since the 2008 Asia Cup, although Pakistan has participated in ICC events held in India, including the recent ODI World Cup 2024.

Should the Indian government deny clearance, the ICC might consider a hybrid model similar to the one used in the 2023 Asia Cup. In that model, Pakistan hosted some matches while the rest, excluding India’s fixtures, were held in Sri Lanka.

The final match will be held in Lahore, which is also scheduled to host all India matches, including a potential semifinal if India advances in the stage matches.
