ICC Champions Trophy :brief details

The ICC Champions Trophy is a One Day International (ODI) cricket tournament organised by the International Cricket Council(ICC), second in importance only to the Cricket World Cup. It was started off as the ICC Knock Out Tournament in 1998 and has been played approximately every two years since. Its name was changed to ICC Champions Trophy in 2002.

The number of teams competing has varied over the years; originally all the ICC’s full members took part, and from 2000 to 2004 associate members were also involved. Since 2009, the tournament has only involved the eight highest-ranked ODI teams as of six months prior to the tournament.

In the lead-in to the 2013 tournament,which India won,ICC announced that the 2013 Champions Trophy was to be the last,with its place in the cricketing calendar to be taken by a new ICC World Test Championship. However, in January 2014, that decision was reversed, with the ICC confirming that Champions Trophy tournament would take place in 2017 and the proposed Test Championship was cancelled.

The next day, Sri Lanka again played 50 overs and India played eight overs. In the end India and Sri Lanka were declared joint winners.

The teams played 110 overs, but there was no result. Virender Sehwag (271) had the highest number of runs in the tournament and Muralitharan (10) had the highest number of wickets.
