India board agree to Champions Trophy participation


The uncertainty over India's participation in the Champions Trophy is expected to be put to rest on Sunday when the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) holds its Special General Meeting (SGM).

It was decided that the squad for the series will be picked on Monday.

The one devised by former BCCI president N Srinivasan, former CA chairman Wally Edwards and European Central Bank president Giles Clarke, which gave the BCCI $570 million out of projected ICC revenues of $2.5 billion, a share way larger than any other country was getting?

The reproduction of the story/photograph in any form will be liable for legal action.

It's reported that the ICC had voted to reduce the BCCI's share of revenue at its board meeting that led to the Indian officials contemplating to pull out from the tournament.


The governing body had earlier been divided over the question of India's participation in the tournament. Once the heavyweight at the ICC, the BCCI was outvoted on crucial resolutions in a coup of sorts at the last two ICC meetings in February and April. In sum, the BCCI's attitude is "Global cricket be damned, if we don't get what we want we will take our bat and ball - and our cash-rich sponsors - and go home". In his book "I Was There: Memoirs of a Cricket Administrator", the late Jaywant Lele tells of a call from ICC chief executive David Richards in 1997, shortly after the late Jagmohan Dalmiya had taken over as president.

With the ICC clipping BCCI's financial wings in its new revenue model, the Indian cricket board was not too happy and was contemplating pulling out from the mega event and thus the meeting to make a unanimous decision on the same.

The board is meeting with its hands tied at the back and the mouth taped after COA has instructed it to select the squad for the Champions Trophy (June 1-18) in England and Wales immediately.

Perhaps. The CoA also agrees with some of the BCCI's objections to the ICC's new constitution. The CoA also advised the BCCI members against sending a legal notice to the ICC. While the BCCI says it's all unfair, it does not say what calculation the figure it had proposed under previous ICC president N Srinivasan's "Big Three" formulation - $570 million.

"India is the world's no. 1 ranked team and Oppo's faith in us shows their commitment to cricket as a whole and India, in particular", said Johri at the launch of the jersey along with the mobile firm's new product "Selfie Expert F3".
