The tournament will be played across 18 days in three venues - The Oval, Edgbaston and Cardiff - in England with the final to be played at Edgbaston.

England is set to become the first country to host the Champions Trophy twice. They were the hosts in 2004 when an inspired West Indian side won the tournament.

The tournament has so far been played in Bangladesh (1998), Kenya (2000), Sri Lanka (2002), England (2004), India (2006) and South Africa (2009).

India will take on South Africa in the opening encounter of the tournament at Cardiff. Both the teams have won the tournament previously and are among the favourites to win it again in 2013.

Defending champions Australia are the only country to win the tournament twice. The current side may not be as strong as the one’s who have competed in the tournament previously, yet the Michael Clarke-led side is one to watch out for.

South Africa (1998), New Zealand (2000), Sri Lanka and India (2002), West Indies (2004) and Australia (2006 and 2009) have won the tournament so far since its inception in 1998.
