Story highlights

Pakistan has been awarded the hosting rights for Champions Trophy in 2025 while India is all set to host three major ICC tournaments in the 2024-2031 cycle.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday confirmed the host nations for all major men's tournaments in white-ball cricket for the 2024 to 2031 cycle. India have been awarded the hosting rights of three major tournaments including the 2026 T20 World Cup and the 2031 ODI World Cup.

Pakistan have been awarded the hosting rights for the 2025 Champions Trophy as the country is set to host a major ICC event for the first time since 1996 when it hosted the men's ODI World Cup alongside India and Sri Lanka. A total of eleven full members and three associate members of the ICC will be hosting a total of eight major tournaments between 2024 to 2031.

USA will be hosting a major ICC event for the first time as the country has been awarded the hosting rights for the 2024 T20 World Cup alongside West Indies. The move from ICC will help in promoting cricket in the country. While USA has never hosted an ICC event, West Indies staged the T20 World Cup in 2010.
