BCCI confirms India's Champions Trophy participation

BCCI confirms India's Champions Trophy participation”

This has emerged after the CoA met all state associations of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in New Delhi on Saturday, a day before the Special General Meeting (SGM) to be held in the Capital where India's participation will be finalised.

"The BCCI SGM unanimously decided that the Indian cricket team will participate in the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy", read a statement.

Supreme Court of India had rendered N Srinivasan ineligible to attend ICC meeting as BCCI representative. As was previously reported, the COA had called the meetings with the state units (zone wise) to discuss the key Champions Trophy and implementation of the Lodha Committee reforms.

Holders India did not submit a squad for the one-day global tournament by an April 25 deadline after the BCCI failed in a bid to halt a new revenue model being adopted by the ICC.

It also ran in Sept 2016 when the BCCI was miffed that it had been excluded from a meeting of the ICC finance committee in Dubai.

In all likelihood, the team for the tournament, to be held in England from June 1 to 18, should be announced by Monday once acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary gives his nod to convene the selection committee meeting. "The squad can then be submitted to the ICC without prejudice to BCCI's legal rights".

The recent 8-2 vote in favour of the new constitution, and for the revenue model by a stunning 9-1, underlines how badly the BCCI has overplayed its hand.

Undoubtedly the roots behind this issue are totally related to the money matters, BCCI has been deliberately opposing the ICC's decision to reverse the Big Three format, which gave India, Australia, and England the lion's share of revenues.

"The Supreme Court had said that he can not represent BCCI in the ICC, but he was never barred from attending the SGM", he told Cricketnext. The COA had prevailed over the members on the need to select the squad for the tournament without prejudice to the BCCI.

The COA told that the office-bearers should keep in mind while mulling a pull-out that "India are the best team in the world today".

The point 13 of the letter stated COA would support any decision "which protects the interests of Indian cricket as a whole".
