India to participate in ICC Champion Trophy

New Delhi (May 07, 2017): Amid speculations and rumors, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday cleared India’s participation in the ICC Champion Trophy.

The BCCI took the decision in its special general meeting to take part in the mega event which will be held in England.

It was decided that no legal recourse will be taken against the ICC as dictated by the Committee of Administrators (CoA).

The team for the event, starting June 1, will be selected in the next 48 hours.

BCCI has deliberately missed the April 25 deadline for submission of the squad in the wake of ICC proposing a new financial model which reduces BCCI’s revenues from $570 million to $293 million.

“It was a unanimous decision that the Indian team will be participating in the Champions Trophy. We will not take any legal recourse in the matter. Mr Amitabh Chaudhary and CEO Rahul Johri will negotiate with ICC,” Indian media quoted a senior office-bearer of BCCI as saying.

Former president N Srinivasan attended the SGM via Skype but refrained from speaking about a pull-out after gauging the general mood.
