India board agree to Champions Trophy cricket participation

India board agree to Champions Trophy cricket participation

"It would be appropriate to make all necessary preparations for ensuring that Team India can successfully defend its title in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 which commences on 1st June 2017".

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 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 told PTI today. The BCCI also lost out to the voting on "governance and constitutional changes" by a margin of 1-9, while the revenue model saw India lose out by a 2-8 margin. It began as a vote against the move to revise the proposed revenue format of the ICC which is now snowballed into a massive standoff threatening to even pull India out of the upcoming Champions Trophy. Had they revoked the MPA, it would have meant India sitting out the Champions Trophy and all other ICC events till 2023, including the 2019 and 2023 World Cups.

Earlier, the Committee of Administrators - appointed by the Supreme Court - had asked the BCCI against taking a strong stand as that would hamper future relation between the ICC and the BCCI. Some also see reason in accepting the revised offer from the ICC, which has agreed to pay the BCCI $100 million more than the approved $293 million.

"The SGM may be divided on whether to send the Indian team for the Champions Trophy but the CoA is sure about its priorities".

"The Board unanimously authorised the acting honorary secretary of the BCCI to continue negotiations with the ICC in the best interest of the BCCI while keeping its legal options open", it said in the statement.
