ICC Champions Trophy Odds
With the first edition of the Champions Trophy coming in 1998 when it was known as the ICC Knockout Trophy, it has since evolved to include varying formats, taking place every four years.
Although it has many similarities to other test cricket competitions, the ICC Champions trophy is completely different and features eight teams. Having been founded by the International Cricket Council, they opted for a slightly shorter competition, lasting around two weeks.
It selects the eight highest-ranked teams in ODI cricket to make up the current eight teams.
Over the years, the ICC Champions Trophy has changed format several times, incorporating varying amounts of teams and the number of games each would be required to play.
In 2017, the ICC Champions Trophy was set to be replaced by the ICC World Test Championship, which was soon withdrawn to continue the Champions Trophy. This would also be a special tournament for Pakistan as they would go on to win their first title.
