The 2009 ICC Champions Trophy is a One Day International cricket tournament originally scheduled to be held in Pakistan in 2008 (originally due to be held 12-28 September 2008, but postponed by the ICC due to security fears expressed by several participating countries on 24 August 2008, after speculation that the tournament would be held elsewhere (England, Sri Lanka, or South Africa)). On 24 July 2008, the ICC announced that the tournament would take place in Pakistan after all despite players from Australia, England, South Africa and New Zealand raising concerns over touring the country.
