New Delhi: Putting an end to all the speculation, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday cleared India’s participation in the ICC Champions Trophy in England and Wales at its Special General Meeting (SGM) in New Delhi.
It was decided that no legal recourse will be taken against the ICC as dictated by the Committee of Administrators (COA). The team for the event, starting 1 June, will be selected in the next 48 hours.
“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,” a senior office-bearer said.
Former president N Srinivasan attended the SGM via Skype but refrained from speaking about a pull-out after gauging the general mood.
