A few weeks ago, the PCB transmitted the timetable to the ICC. After a thorough assessment, the governing body decided not to change the PCB’s planned schedule.

India’s tour of Pakistan, Men in Blue will play all of their matches in Lahore

Pakistan is hosting the Champions Trophy 2025, which Australia, England, and India will contest. Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and New Zealand will also participate.
Lahore will host both the final and India’s matches. India hasn’t said outright that it won’t go to Pakistan.

Seven additional nations are eager to compete and have already played in Pakistan. If other nations confirm their participation, it will be challenging for India to withdraw later.
According to the preliminary schedule, the tournament will be held in Karachi, Lahore, and Rawalpindi from February 19 to March 9.

Lahore will host seven games, including the championship game. The first game and the semifinals will occur in Karachi’s National Stadium. Three matches will take place in Karachi. There will be five matches, including the semi-final, in Rawalpindi.

The PCB headquarters at Gaddafi Stadium are being replaced with contemporary corporate boxes. However, the structure as a whole will remain intact. The new changing rooms will remain where they are. The Fazal Mahmood and Imran Khan Enclosure will have a larger seating capacity and be raised over the current structure.

New digital screens will be built at Pindi Stadium in Karachi and Lahore. The National Stadium in Karachi will have its building condition upgraded, and near the University End, a new media centre featuring a scoreboard will be constructed.
