The International Cricket Council has confirmed that England will host the 2013 Champions Trophy.

This will be the second time the tournament will be held on English soil. In 2004 England held the competition and reached the final only to lose out to the West Indies.

The 50-over contest is the second biggest one day competition behind the inaugural World Cup yet the trophy remains a prestigious prize.

All ten ICC nations will take part along with two associate members in the revised tournament format on the back of criticism from the World cup in 2007.
