BCCI agrees to Champions Trophy participation

Champions Trophy 2017

Wire reports on the day suggested that there are two distinct camps in the BCCI now, with state units from North and East zones keen to field a team for the tournament where India are defending champions, and South and West zones keen to teach the ICC a lesson since India's financial clout underwrites a large share of global cricket activity.

The BCCI had already delayed naming the India squad for the Champions Trophy, and there was talk of revoking the Members Participating Agreement (MPA), which governs participation in ICC events, as part of the fallout of the ICC meetings. Find us on Facebook too!

The eight-nation Champions Trophy will be played in England and Wales from June 1.

In the wake of the ICC proposing a new financial model which reduces the BCCI's revenues from United States dollars 570 million to USD 293 million, the latter had deliberately missed the April 25 deadline for submission of the squad and that there were speculations that they might pull out of the tournament.

The squad for the 50-over tournament would be named on Monday, it added.




On Friday, the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA), in a strongly worded statement, ordered the BCCI to refrain from taking any decision which might harm the interests of Indian cricket. "The Supreme Court passed a judgement that he won't be allowed to attend the ICC meeting but it was never clarified whether he is ineligible to attend the SGM", a senior BCCI official conveyed the news in an interaction with PTI.

India have finally confirmed their participation in next month's Champions Trophy.

The committee headed by former Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) Vinod Rai has made a decision to accommodate the BCCI's concerns on three of the most contentious Lodha Committee recommendations and the Board has chose to drop its hostile stance towards COA.

BCCI's current joint secretary, Amitabh Choudhary, has been given the task of cracking a deal with the ICC on its behalf while keeping the legal options open.
