South Africa will stage this year’s Champions Trophy one-day tournament in September and October,the International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Monday.

The ICC executive board made a ‘unanimous’ decision in a teleconference after its executive committee made the recommendation last week.

The eight-team event was originally scheduled to take place in Pakistan but was postponed last year and then switched due to security concerns.
