India confirm Champions Trophy involvement

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday ended the speculations surrounding India's participation in the upcoming Champions Trophy, and confirmed that the Men in Blue would participate in the 50-over pinnacle event, beginning June 1st in England and Wales.

The dispute intensified when India did not submit a squad for the one-day worldwide tournament by an April 25 deadline after its cricket board (BCCI) failed to stall a new income model being adopted by the global Cricket Council (ICC). You are aware that the squad representing India at the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 was to be submitted by 25th April 2017 but the squad has not even been selected as yet.

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.

Cricket's massive popularity in India has helped the BCCI become by far the wealthiest of all of cricket's national boards, netting massive money from sponsorship and TV deals.

Coming to the details, it must be recalled that BCCI's earlier share of $571 million was conceded to $293 million with Australia not losing out on anything and England's loss being minimal, which means that India is the ultimate victim. The court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) which is running the BCCI - and to which the Indian board's office bearers have to report until a new constitution is adopted as per the Lodha Committee's recommendations to the board - at one point had to step in to prevent a segment of the board from serving notice to the ICC on the matter. "We don't want to pursue any legal case and don't want a confrontational approach", said Shukla.
