    Yikes, another nine-day tournament to cram up fixture lists...

    Hosts have been announced for lots of years in the future, btw.

    2007 South Africa
    2008 Pakistan
    2009 England
    2010 West Indies
    2012 Sri Lanka

    All ten Test-playing countries will take part, according to cricinfo.

    Edit: Wait a minute. Now they're saying the 2008 and 2010 events are Champions' Trophies, and by 2012 they'll choose between Twenty20 WC and Champions Trophy. That's some good news, at least. http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/ci/c...89.html#Sambit

    2014
    2016
    2017
    2018
    2020

    And so forth?

    Presumably, though they're supposed to "do an evaluation" after 2009, probably seeing how much money Twenty20 earns compared to Champions' Trophy.

    Is there any evidence that they even want it?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
