Dave Richardson, the chairman of ICC🏏 admitted that the draws for major tournaments are usually fixed in such a way that India🇮🇳 and Pakistan🇵🇰 are in the same group. The groups for 2017 Champions Trophy🏆 in England has pitted the 2⃣ Asian giants against each other once again. This will the 5⃣th consecutive tournament in which the two teams meet at the group stages."No doubt we want to try to put India versus Pakistan in our event. It's hugely important from an ICC point of view. It's massive around the world and the fans have come to expect it as well. It's fantastic for the tournament because it gives it a massive kick," confessed Richardson. The 2015 World Cup match between the two teams garnered 1⃣ billion viewers👀. However, Richardson felt this hardly has an impact on the integrity of a tournament as the groups are balanced in terms of ICC rankings at the end of the day🤔.
