ICC Champions Trophy 2017


The 2017 ICC Champions Trophy is a One Day International (ODI) cricket competition planned to be held in England and Wales in the vicinity of 1 and 18 June 2017.[1] This will be the eighth release of the competition. The main eight groups in the ICC ODI Championship rankings as on 30 September 2015 met all requirements for the competition. The eight groups were isolated into two gatherings of four.

Bangladesh supplanted the West Indies, who completed outside the main eight in ninth position, in the ICC ODI Team Rankings on the cut-off date. Bangladesh come back to the ICC Champions Trophy surprisingly since 2006, and interestingly, the West Indies lost their place in the Champions Trophy.

Security around the competition was expanded after the Ariana Grande Concert Attack in Manchester, just before the begin of the opposition. The International Cricket Council (ICC) reported that they would survey security concerns
