ICC Champions Trophy 2006 is the fifth edition of the tournament (previously known as the ICC Knock-out).
The tournament venue was not confirmed until mid-2005 when the Indian government agreed that tournament revenues would be free from tax.
The 2002 tournament was due to be held in India, but was switched to Sri Lanka when an exemption from tax in India was not granted.
Floodlights have been installed at Jaipur and Mumbai to permit all of the matches to be day/night fixtures (the stadiums in Ahmedabad and Mohali already have permanent floodlights).
