The eighth edition of ICC Champions Trophy is underway in England and Wales where the top-8 teams in ICC ODI rankings are participating to prove their dominance. Apart from the players from different teams, many journalists from different countries have also reached England to cover this world tournament. Meanwhile, a lady journo from Pakistan recently making headlines as her selfies are expected to be the reason behind South Africa and India’s losses in their last played games.
