The International Cricket Council (ICC) is considering changing the format of Champions Trophy 2025 from ODI to T20.

According to a Cricbuzz report, important discussions were held between stakeholders, including broadcasters, at the ICC headquarters.

The meeting suggested that the Champions Trophy event should be played in the T20 format instead of 50 overs, with figures presented showing that the 50 overs format has seen a 20 percent drop in attendance since the 2019 World Cup.

Broadcasters prefer the one-day format due to advertising, but the chances of selling slots are low.

The upcoming Champions Trophy in Pakistan is likely to be held between February and mid-March next year, while the biggest challenge for the organizers is to find a window of 17-18 days allotted for the eight-team Champions Trophy.

The ICC has sold the rights to the event in ODI format.

On the other hand, the top officials of the ICC are determined to hold the Champions Trophy 2025 in the ODI format.
