ICC Champions Trophy: Indian Team Selection On Monday
With the BCCI and COA divided on whether India should pullout of the Champions Trophy after the ICC cut its financial wings by reworking the revenue model of the global body, the letter came amid speculation that the BCCI was seriously mulling a pullout. The COA had prevailed over the members on the need to select the squad for the tournament without prejudice to the BCCI.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the decision after a special general meeting held in New Delhi amidst a row over sharing revenues with the game's world governing body.
On hearing the demands of the state bodies, the CoA asked the state association members to go back to the SGM and take a fresh call on how they would manage to implement the Lodha reforms.
There was doubt over India's participation due to the BCCI being dissatisfied with the outcomes of the ICC Board meetings in April. "There has been more than enough negativity surrounding Team India's participation in the ICC Champions Trophy and the sooner the same is put to rest the better" it added.
England play the opening match of the tournament against Bangladesh at The Oval on June 1.
The powerful BCCI stands to lose $277 million in revenue over the next eight years under the sweeping changes approved by ICC members. "We don't want to pursue any legal case and don't want a confrontational approach", said Shukla.
The BCCI's use of the Champions Trophy as a bargaining chip with the ICC had come in for criticism.
BCCI's current joint secretary, Amitabh Choudhary, has been given the task of cracking a deal with the ICC on its behalf while keeping the legal options open.
The COA - comprising Rai, IDFC managing director Vikram Limaye, and former Indian women's cricket captain Diana Edulji - was appointed by the Supreme Court after the Board refused to implement Lodha Committee recommendations.
