Ending the fortnight suspense over the Indian cricket team’s participation in this year’s Champions Trophy, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday announced that Indian team to play the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy scheduled to be held from June 1 at the Oval, London. The decision was taken at a Special General Meeting where it was also announced to pick the squad for the ICC event, will be held on Monday.
"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," Press Trust of India quoted a senior official as saying.
There were serious apprehensions that India may skip to play in the champions trophy this year after Indian Board was unsatisfied with the new ICC revenue model. In the previous model, BCCI received $570 million that now has been slashed to just $293 million. The new ICC revenue model will remain effective till 2023. BCCI has now decided to give the green signal to the team’s participation and not to take any serious action against the global cricket body as it would jeopardize India’s cricket image at international level. However, BCCI officials stated playing in the Champions Trophy does not mean the board is agreed with a new revenue model.
The board has given the task to current joint secretary Amitabh Choudhary to negotiate with the ICC on behalf of the BCCI while keeping its legal options open. The Board unanimously authorized the acting Hony. Secretary of the BCCI to continue negotiations with the ICC in the best interest of the BCCI while keeping its legal options open," the BCCI said in a press release.
