Champions Trophy to South Africa

At last the ICC Champions Trophy will be run but this time it will be hosted by South Africa.

Its unfortunate that because of the security problems in Pakistan they can't host the tournament but its fair to say that the ICC has tried to delay as much as possible but they cannot keep on postponing the event.

So the tournament will start late September and finish in early October.

I am keen to see what the ICC will do with the 2011 Cricket World Cup. I think its better to give Pakistan as much time as possible but at the same time I think its not a bad idea to think of what will happen should they not be part of the 2011 showcase event.

I think its going to be a difficult issue for the ICC but a time will come when they have to make a decision and I will wait and see what they will do.

This tournament will mean yet another tournament for South Africa because in June South Africa will host the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup and then next year will be the big one - the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
