Salman Butt says it’s ‘ICC’s duty’ to ensure India visits Pakistan for Champions Trophy 2025

After a historic T20 World Cup win, the Indian cricket team is eyeing the Champions Trophy in 2025. But the question remains, will they travel to Pakistan? former Pakistan captain has his own view on this.

The Indian cricket team had a historic outing in Barbados as the Men in Blue won their second T20 World Cup trophy by beating South Africa in the final. However, on the other hand, we saw three seniors retire, Virat Kohli, Ravindra Jadeja, and Rohit Sharma all hung up their boots in the T20 format.

Now, they are focused on other ICC tournaments, with the major one being just around the corner, ICC Champions Trophy 2025, which will be held in Pakistan next year. But will India travel to their neighbor’s door? Recently, former Pakistan captain Salman Butt shared his views on the Men in Blue’s plans.

Salman Butt believes that it should not be the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) responsibility to impress the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), rather, it should be the ICC’s job to keep track and ensure that all teams travel to Pakistan for this mega event.

“If they come, then they welcome, if they don’t, the ICC has to deal with it. We will find out if they can just deal with all the other countries or can do the same with India as well. It will show how much authority they have as a regulator and how neutral they can be.” Butt said on his Youtube channel

Will India travel to Pakistan for Champions Trophy?

With all the buzz around, will India travel or not? Recently, Jay commented, and he cleared India will participate in the Champions Trophy. Not only this, but senior players are also going to be there. ‘The way this team is progressing, our target is to win the World Test Championship final and the Champions Trophy. There will be a similar squad playing there. The seniors will be there,’ Shah said. But Salman Butt didn’t find any hope in this statement, as he believes Shah still didn’t confirm India’s availability in Pakistan next year.
