India’s ICC Champions Trophy participation not confirmed yet, BCCI, CoA look for solution

The next couple of days will see some serious business and decision making in Indian cricket, the repercussions of which will be felt in the world of cricket.

The best amicable solution that can be arrived is that the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) Special General Meeting (SGM), that will be held on Sunday in New Delhi, clears the selection of the Indian cricket team for the ICC Champions Trophy, as also demanded by the Committee of Administrators (CoA). Also, if the Supreme Court-appointed CoA backs the decision to send notice to the International Cricket Council (ICC) to cure the breach made to the revenue and governance model.

It is understood, that the BCCI members are also against further delay in the selection of the Indian team because of the lengthy visa procedure and paperwork involved.

“The visa procedure will take time, while the option to withdraw is always there,” said a senior BCCI functionary.

Selecting the 15-member squad would not be a headache as it’s a set team. For the couple of spots that need to be confirmed, the selectors will have plenty of options from the performances in the Indian Premier League.
