England Could Miss Out on Champions Trophy 2025 Qualifying Following a Dismal World Cup Performance

England Could Miss Out on Champions Trophy 2025 Qualifying Following a Dismal World Cup Performance. Due to their bad performance at the ODI World Cup 2023, the England cricket team may not qualify for the ICC Champions Trophy 2025 after the International Cricket Council (ICC) introduced new rules to the ongoing competition in India.

The top seven teams from the current World Cup in India’s league stage, together with hosts Pakistan, will be eligible for the 2025 Champions Trophy and will play in the eight-team competition, an ICC representative reportedly confirmed to ESPNCricinfo.

Additionally, after losing five of their six matches in the ongoing ODI World Cup, the incumbent 50-over World Cup champions are currently bottom of the points table and run a serious chance of missing out on the Champions Trophy.

According to the report, the 2025 Champions Trophy qualification procedure was authorized by the ICC Board in 2021, the year the competition was reinstated as one of the eight men’s global championships scheduled for the 2024–2031 cycle.

A few boards, whose teams are in India as well as others who missed the ODI World Cup, have expressed surprise at the situation and claim to have no idea about qualifying for the 2025 Champions Trophy.

Bangladesh, who are ranked ninth, appear to be in peril as well as England. Shakib Al Hasan, the captain of Bangladesh, had said that placing in the top eight was crucial, even if his side was almost eliminated from the ODI World Cup semifinal competition.

Not the semi-final hope, that is. It is not a possibility for the semifinals. Do a little better, at least. Let’s say that in order to compete in the Champions Trophy, you need to be in the [top] ranking 8. Thus, keeping that in mind, there are still three matches remaining,” Shakib stated on Saturday following Bangladesh’s defeat by the Netherlands.

Due to their failure to qualify for the 2023 ODI World Cup, other Full-Member countries such as the West Indies, Zimbabwe, and Ireland would also not even be able to compete for the 2025 Champions Trophy.
