ICC Champions Trophy 2017 'Trophy Tour' in India from March 2

ICC champions trophy will visit 19 cities across the globe during its tour across all eight competing nations, allowing fans to get a close-up view of the prestigious silverware.



ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said: “The global trophy tour is the start of what will be a fantastic summer of cricket celebration in the UK with two major back-to-back events”

The trophy’s journey will also be documented on ICC’s various social media platforms and fans across the world can track the movements of the trophy via the Nissan trophy tour dedicated section on the ICC website , which will host an interactive map of the trophy tour’s schedule of activities along with a gallery of imagery captured during each of the stops.

The trophy’s journey will start on Thursday, 2 March, when it will depart for India, and after travelling through Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia, it will arrive in the United Kingdom on 2 May where the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 will be staged from 1-18 June.

Nissan Global Head of Marketing and Brand Strategy Roel de Vries added: “We partnered with the ICC to bring cricket fans closer to the excitement of the game. We want the Nissan Trophy Tour to build excitement and anticipation on the journey towards the ICC Champions Trophy tournament in the UK in June.”

Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi attended the launch ceremony, and said: “The ICC Champions Trophy is an event which gives me and millions of Pakistan cricket supporters mixed feelings. It is the only ICC major tournament Pakistan has never won, but at the same time it is the only ICC event in which Pakistan has beaten India. That said, I am sure things will soon change as nothing is permanent in life and sport.

“The ICC Champions Trophy is a tough and challenging tournament for the players, but immensely entertaining for the fans. In the two-week window, each side plays almost every third day, against a new opponent and in fresh conditions. As such, there is no time to relax or reflect on past glory or failure. In quest for the title, you simply have to be sharp and on the ball every single day.

“The tournament in June will be no different and will probably be one of the most open events in recent times. It will not be prudent to predict a winner, as, at least, five of the eight sides, I think, have an outstanding chance to lift the trophy on 18 June.

“Like most of the champions of our sport, I too have always enjoyed playing cricket in the United Kingdom, not only because of its rich cricket heritage and history as well as its cultural diversity, but also because it boasts excellent playing facilities which is complimented by some very passionate and knowledgeable cricket fans.

“I want to thank the ICC and all its sponsors for their support of cricket. By taking the trophy on a global tour, they’re enabling fans to connect with the event regardless of where they live and hopefully build a new generation of cricket fans.”

The following is the schedule of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 Nissan Trophy Tour:

2-15 March – Mumbai, Bengaluru and Delhi
18-21 March – Dhaka
22-25 March – Colombo
28 March-30 March– Karachi
4-12 April – Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town
15-18 April – Auckland
19-27 April – Melbourne and Sydney
2 May onwards – United Kingdom (30 days to go)


I would love to play in the Champions Trophy - Nehra

Veteran pacer Ashish Nehra on Saturday expressed his strong desires to be a part of the India squad for the upcoming International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy 2017, to be held in England in June.


Though he last played in the format in the 2011 World Cup, Nehra has said he retains hopes of playing fifty-over cricket for India again when they land in England in June for the Champions Trophy.

“I would love to play in the Champions Trophy,” Nehra was quoted as saying by espncricinfo.

“When you go to England you will take at least four fast bowlers in addition to two spinners. I know I can bowl anywhere: up front, in the middle overs and at death. I can also share the experience I have with the other young fast bowlers,” he added.

Nehra's last competitive fifty-over match - the recent practice game against England notwithstanding - was in December 2015. But that doesn't deter him.

Nehra, who has been an integral feature of the Twenty20 set-up for the men-in-blue, wants to test his fitness in the upcoming Vijay Hazare Trophy, the domestic 50-over tournament, where the 37-year-old intends to play at least half of Delhi’s six fixtures.

“I aim to play at least three matches to build up my match-fitness. Fifty overs is a different challenge and Vijay Hazare is a good platform to test myself,” he said.

“I bowl about eight overs even in the nets while preparing for a T20 match. It is not about fitness. It is about the feel of playing in a 50-over match.”

Nehra's original timeline had him working towards returning to one-day cricket with the New Zealand series last October but he fell ill and was forced to spend a couple of months on the sidelines.

Nehra is hopeful these assets help make him an attractive pick for the Champions Trophy but felt it premature to think as far as the next ICC tournament. "The 2019 World Cup is still two-and-a-half years away. We are going to play at least 50 one-dayers in between. For me every tournament is important. I will try to play as much as I can."

India and Pakistan to face each other before ICC Champions Trophy

Cricket Lovers across India and Pakistan will get to witness the biggest rivalry in the sporting world twice this year. Both the nations were scheduled to face each other in June at the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, Bcci official M V Sridhar confirmed to that India will be participating in the Emerging Cup to be held between March 15 to 26 at Bangladesh. The tournament was started in 2013 and is authorised by the Asian Cricket Committee.


“Yes, India would be sending a team to the tournament. It’s an ACC tournament and so we would go there. This is not a bilateral India-Pakistan series, and so this is different,” said MV Sridhar.

However, there is a slight twist as in the tournament’s format is not a usual one. Even though the matches are played in the ODI format, four top countries: India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh can only pick 4 players above the age of 23 years in their squad.

On the other hand, Afghanistan, UAE, Hong Kong, Nepal will be allowed to field their national sides without any restrictions. Among the current Indian players, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya are 23 years or less and if the selectors give a nod, might feature in the tournament.

However, Sridhar said that given India’s busy schedule, it will be tough to send four national players but the final decision will be taken by the selectors. India and Pakistan haven’t played a bilateral series since 2013 due to the tension between tow countries.

However, they did face off each other at the 2015 ICC World Cup and in the 2016 World T20 and India emerged victorious on both occasions. They are now set to play against each other in the upcoming Champions Trophy in England on June 4 in Edgbaston.
