World cricketing body, ICC, has converted the Champions Trophy to World T20 on Thursday.
ICC Chief Executive Dave Richardson said the next edition of the tournament, in 2021, and said the reason for the change was that the original event was too similar to the ODI World Cup.
"The Champions Trophy, in a way, was too similar to the World Cup. It was difficult to differentiate," Richardson told reporters at a press briefing held at the end of a five-day ICC quarterly meet in Kolkata.
