The ICC Champions Trophy is the pinnacle of One-Day International cricket. Set to be held at a selection of iconic venues in England and Wales, the eighth edition of the ICC Champions Trophy will see the top eight teams of the ICC ODI Championship rankings (as of 30 September 2015) play in a 15-match, round-robin and knockout format tournament over the first two and a half weeks of June. For the first time in the history of the tournament, a major test team in the West Indies will not be participating in the tournament, after Bangladesh secured the 8th and final qualifying spot. The fixture for the ICC Champions Trophy England & Wales 2017 was announced on June 1 2016.

Though Australia are the reigning ICC Cricket World Cup champions and have won the ICC Champions Trophy an equal-leading two times, India are the reigning champions having won the ICC Champions Trophy when the tournament was last staged in 2013 (also in England and Wales) and are widely considered to currently be the strongest ODI team in the world. Another major threat to Australia’s campaign is last year’s Cricket World Cup runners-up, New Zealand! Our old trans-Tasman friends and rivals, currently ranked second, are a young, up and coming side that will have only benefited from the experience of making it so close yet so far from being world champions. Aside from India and New Zealand, other teams to watch out for will be the always dangerous, but serial underachievers, South Africa, and host nation, England, who will no doubt seek to exploit the psychological edge they have over Australia after their comprehensive Ashes victory on English soil in 2015. And last but not least, Sri-Lanka are a very capable side that will look to “choke” the Aussies with their comprehensive slow bowling attack. So if Australia are to hold aloft the ICC Champions Trophy a record third time, the “green’n’gold” will have to bring its A-Game to every single match!
