The ICC Champions Trophy is an international cricket tournament which takes place every four years. The first tournament was held in 1998 and has been taking place since.

India claimed the title in 2013 for the second time after being declared co-champions with Sri-Lanka in 2002, however, Pakistan are yet to make their mark.
