ICC Champions Trophy Cricket 2002 in Sri Lanka
ICC Champions Trophy Cricket in Sri LankaThe 2002 ICC Champions Trophy is a cricket tournament that was held in Sri Lanka in 2002. It was the third edition of the ICC Champions Trophy (the first two having been known as the ICC Knock-out). The tournament was due to be held in India, but was switched to Sri Lanka when an exemption from tax in India was not granted.
Twelve teams competed: the 10 Test-playing nations plus Netherlands and Kenya. The teams were split into four pools of three teams each. Each team played the other two teams in its pool once, and the four teams that headed each pool proceeded to the Semi Finals. The Final between India and Sri Lanka was washed out twice, to leave no result.

Champions Trophy History
As one of cricket's most prestigious events, the ICC Champions Trophy sits alongside the World Cup as one of the two "majors" of international cricket.
The two tournaments are the only occasions on the cricket calendar when all 10 Test-playing nations come together to compete in the one event.
Originally introduced as the ICC Knock Out tournament in 1998 and staged every two years since that time, the event has evolved into a round-robin competition with teams split into pool groups based on their official ICC one-day international rankings. In 2002, the tournament was renamed the ICC Champions Trophy to reflect the new competition format.
