Anurag Thakur, Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports, on November 17 stated that Amit Shah-led home ministry will decide regarding India's participation in the Champions Trophy 2025.

Former Pakistan player Shoaib Akhtar wants India to qualify for the finale of the T20 World Cup in order to beat them for the second time in the ongoing tournament. India and Pakistan played against each other in the Super 12 stage with the latter winning the game for the first time against the arch-rivals.

The Men in Green won the game by 10 wickets and since then former cricketers from Pakistan have continued to speak against the Men in Blue.

“And for India, we are waiting for you in the finals. Because we want to beat you in the finals and that is why we are praying for you to qualify for the finals. We want to give India another ‘Mauka’ in the finals,” he said.

While Pakistan have already qualified for the semi-finals after winning four consecutive matches, India have won just one and lost two in the global event of the social format.
