This time, the World T20 2016 winner West Indies will not be there as they was on the 9th spot in the ICC ODI rankings as on 30th September 2015. Bangladesh has replaced them and since 2006 this will be the first chance for them when they will participate into the tournament.

As India is the defending Champion of the tournament they will try hard not to give the trophy from their bag to anyone. In 2013 India has won the title defeating England in a nail-biting game by just 5 runs. Due to rain, the game was reduced to 20 over battle and that was a full entertaining game for all the cricket fans. Hope we will see many such games this season too.

Earlier the tournament is known as ICC Knock-out but In 2002 it was renamed to Champions Trophy. Earlier every alternate year the tournament was used to held but now ICC have decided that it will be held after every 3 years. So after 2013, the tournament is ready for the 2017 season.

India has won the title twice one in 2002 when Sri Lanka and India both shared the trophy and second in 2013. Current ICC World Cup Champion Australia has also won the trophy twice and back to back in 2006 & 2009. Here is the complete List of the all previous winners of tournament :-
