DRS June 22: Babar Azam to be punished by PCB & Kohli-Rohit to play Champions Trophy in Pakistan?

Welcome to our special segment, DRS or the Daily Review System. In this, InsideSport will provide you with the top cricket stories from a day before that you might have missed in the hustle and bustle of your busy life.

The cricketing fraternity was once again swamped up with several headline-making stories throughout June 21. Pakistan, as usual, dominated the news with PCB eyeing to make some tough calls after the T20 World Cup 2024 debacle. India, on the other hand, continued on their tiresome World Cup schedule, getting involved in a training session before their Super 8 clash against Bangladesh.

ICC to approve Champions Trophy 2025 in Pakistan?

While the final say for BCCI still remains on the Indian government, it looks like there is ICC’s greenlit the PCB’s draft schedule for the 2025 Champions Trophy in Pakistan (February 19th – March 9th). This eight-team tournament will see Lahore host the most games (7), including the high-voltage India-Pakistan clash and the final. Karachi and Rawalpindi will hold 3 and 5 matches respectively. While the schedule is set, a question mark hangs over India’s participation. They previously refused to play the Asia Cup in Pakistan, and a similar decision for the Champions Trophy is a possibility.

Virat & Rohit aim to get their midas touch back

Indian batting legends Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli were spotted putting in extra work at an optional training session after their win against Afghanistan. This dedication is a welcome sight after their struggles in the T20 World Cup and ahead of the Bangladesh tie. After travelling more than 500 kms from Barbados to Antigua, they could’ve easily opted to take rest.

Babar Azam & Mohammad Rizwan to get punished?

Pakistan cricket stars Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan could face a potential demotion from the PCB’s top tier (Category A) of central contracts. This follows their team’s disappointing exit from the T20 World Cup group stage. While their salaries wouldn’t be cut, the move reflects a significant drop in status within the board’s ranking system.
