The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Sunday postponed until next year September's Champions Trophy in Pakistan over security fears.

The move came two days after South Africa refused to send their team, while players' associations from Australia, New Zealand and England urged their players not to travel to the troubled country over security concerns, officials said.

The event, scheduled to be held from September 12-28, had ran into trouble after Australia postponed their full tour of Pakistan over security fears triggered in the wake of suicide bombings earlier this year.
