Four Twenty20 leagues will be negatively impacted by the 2025 Champions Trophy schedule

<p>The ICC Champions Trophy is scheduled to return in 2019 for the first time since Pakistan defeated India in the final to win it in 2017. The competition is expected to offer scheduling issues to certain T20 leagues and is slated to take place in February and March. Pakistan will host the competition, but things might yet change because of the Indian government’s alleged unwillingness to provide team India permission.</p>

<p>The cricket boards that organize T20 leagues have a lot of work ahead of them when it comes to arranging their tournament schedule for the next year, even if that problem will probably be resolved eventually. Although the Champions Trophy schedule has not yet been revealed, the timeframe chosen for the competition is expected to present problems for the SA20, Pakistan Super League (PSL), Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), and International League T20 (ILT20). Furthermore, player availability for the Big Bash League (BBL) would be impacted if these competitions are postponed.</p>
<p>This year’s ILT20 will end on February 17 after starting on January 19. The PSL will begin play on February 17 and go through March 18, while the second SA20 edition began on January 10 and concluded on February 10 of this year. This year’s BPL runs from January 19 to March 1; the Champions Trophy will directly conflict with all of these events the next year.</p>
<p>Despite the fact that neither the SA20 nor the PSL have released any formal announcements on the match, an ILT20 official acknowledged that the tournament window would be smaller next year. “We need to focus on a restricted timeframe,” a representative said Cricbuzz. In the meanwhile, PCB can afford to launch PSL in the last week of February, after the conclusion of the Champions Trophy; but, there’s a good chance that it will collide with the Indian Premier League (IPL).</p>
<p>Australia’s roster for the third Twenty20 International match against the West Indies includes Jake Fraser-McGurk, who is expected to make his debut.<br />

Additionally, player availability in the BBL and SA20 and ILT20 competitions will be a problem if they begin early in December 2024 in order to prevent conflicts and overlapping with the Champions Trophy. Even this year, the Australian T20 event suffered as a number of high-profile players left their teams during the playoff week in order to pursue more financial rewards in the ILT20. With less than a year to go until the Champions Trophy, it would be intriguing to see how cricket boards resolve this matter after consulting with the ICC.</p>
