India confirm Champions Trophy involvement

He is believed to be peeved over the women's team selection meeting being convened without his knowledge by BCCI CEO Rahul Johri.

In a major loss of face on Wednesday, the BCCI was out-voted in its opposition to the new model in an ICC meet in Dubai, which has ended up almost halving India's share from the United States dollars 570 million it was getting till a year ago.

"The Supreme Court had said that he can not represent BCCI in the ICC, but he was never barred from attending the SGM", he told Cricketnext.

The origin story of the tournament thus ties together several tropes: One, the BCCI's awareness that as a cricketing powerhouse, it had the responsibility to help ensure the financial well-being of global cricket and two, that this responsibility extended to providing for the needs of smaller, financially less fortunate cricketing nations.

The recent 8-2 vote in favor of the new constitution, and for the revenue model by a stunning 9-1, underlines how badly the BCCI has overplayed its hand and, as a result, pushed its long-time allies to the brink.

The top eight sides in the world rankings compete in the Champions Trophy with India winning the last edition in 2013. "My view is that India must take part in the Champions Trophy", Khanna told news agency ANI.

Members Participation Agreement. It's an agreement between the ICC and a member country that governs participation in ICC events.

The BCCI added in its statement: "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".

So what does this CoA think about all this? Kumble writing to the Board about his decision of wanting to play in the Champions Trophy was uncalled for. The Committee of Administrations (CoA) also ordered the BCCI to pick the squad as soon as possible as the deadline for the selection was 25th May.

Undoubtedly the roots behind this issue are totally related to the money matters, BCCI has been deliberately opposing the ICC's decision to reverse the Big Three format, which gave India, Australia, and England the lion's share of revenues. But it goes not agree with the BCCI's confrontational approach to the problem.
