Cricket fans in Lahore are in for a treat as the city is set to host 7-8 matches in the upcoming CT 2025 tournament. The exact schedule of the matches in Lahore is yet to be announced, but the city is expected to witness some high-octane clashes between top international teams.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has shortlisted Lahore as one of three possible venues for the 2025 Champions Trophy, with the city potentially hosting all of India’s matches. This is due to Lahore’s proximity to the Wagah border, which could ease logistical and security concerns for the Indian team.

The PCB has submitted a draft schedule to the ICC, which is expected to be finalized soon. The tournament is likely to be staged in mid-February next year.

This would be the first ICC event that Pakistan is hosting since the 1996 World Cup, when they were joint hosts with India and Sri Lanka. Pakistan was originally due to stage the Champions Trophy in 2008, but it was postponed and then relocated to South Africa due to security concerns.

The news of Lahore hosting a significant number of matches in the CT 2025 has generated excitement among cricket fans in the city. The Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore is one of the most iconic cricket venues in Pakistan, and it is sure to be a packed house for all of the matches played there.

The official schedule for the CT 2025 is expected to be released soon, which will provide more details about the matches that will be played in Lahore. Stay tuned for further updates!
