India to play Champions Trophy

The option of pulling out of the Champions Trophy by revoking the Members Participation Agreement (MPA) between the ICC and the BCCI has been gaining traction within the #India board, which will discuss the issue at a special general meeting on Sunday.

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

Meanwhile, a fresh controversy could start after the participation of the former chairman of BCCI, Mr. N Srinivasan, who had been ousted out of power by the Lodha Committee Act.

The BCCI secretary is going to take the call after the SGM. "The squad can then be submitted to the ICC without prejudice to BCCI's legal rights", the CoA wrote in a letter to Choudhary.

The BCCI's point, repeatedly argued by various of its revolving cast of administrators, is that India generates up to three quarters of global cricket revenues and must, therefore, get the lion's share of the money the ICC makes.

In the wake of the International Cricket Council (ICC) proposing a new financial model which reduces the BCCI's revenues from Dollars 570 million to USD 293 million, the latter had deliberately missed the April 25 deadline for submission of the squad.

England play the opening match of the tournament against Bangladesh at The Oval on June 1. "I personally think that we should not pull out of the Champions Trophy", CK Khanna, the acting president of the BCCI, told Mirror after the meeting with the administrators.
