The ICC Champions Trophy comes to England for fifteen matches of (hopefully) cricketing excellence. The action gets underway on Thursday 1 June as England take on Bangladesh at the Oval.

England has never won since the tournament began in 1998 - will it succeed in a One Day International tournament on home soil? The last one in 2013 was won by India.
