Champions Trophy will prove

Dubai: Amid growing concerns about one-day cricket's future, ICC CEO Haroon Lorgat has said the upcoming Champions Trophy will prove there is enough space for the 50-over format as it battles the Twenty20 onslaught.

"In the context of 50-over cricket this is an important tournament," Lorgat said.

"It reminds me of a year ago when people were talking about the death of Test cricket, with no crowds being there and so on. Similarly with the ODIs, I think we are maybe running ahead of ourselves.

"Look at England where there is a lot of interest still in the ODI series despite England being so far behind Australia, crowds are still turning up. Similarly in the recent tri-series in Sri Lanka. We will see here, with the Champions Trophy, that there is a place for the ODI format in cricket," he added.
