ICC Champions Trophy 2009
The ICC Champions Trophy 2009 is a One Day International cricket tournament to be held in South Africa between 24 September and 5 October, at Wanderers Stadium and Centurion Park, both in the Johannesburg area. It will be the sixth edition of the ICC Champions Trophy, and was previously known as the ICC Knock-out.
The tournament was originally scheduled to be held in Pakistan between 12 and 28 September 2008. The ICC postponed the tournament due to security fears expressed by several participating countries. On 24 July 2008, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced that the tournament would take place in Pakistan after all despite players from Australia, England,
South Africa and New Zealand raising concerns over touring the country. On 22 August 2008, South Africa announced that it would not take part in the Champions Trophy due to security concerns. Two days later, on 24 August 2008, after speculation that the tournament would be held elsewhere (England, Sri Lanka, or South Africa)), the ICC announced that the tournament would be postponed until October 2009. Now Champions Trophy Schedule 2009 has been announced. For more information visit Indyalive.
