Please convene a meeting of the selection committee for selecting the squad immediately. The ICC approved a new constitution, a new governance structure, and a new finance model.

It's reported that the ICC had voted to reduce the BCCI's share of revenue at its board meeting that led to the Indian officials contemplating to pull out from the tournament.

Wait, Srinivasan? Wasn't he declared ineligible to continue as an office-bearer by the Supreme Court?

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. These pertain to the onestate- one-vote rule, the CAG's presence in the Board's proposed apex panel, and the reduction in the size of the selection panel from five members to just three.


Members Participation Agreement. It's an agreement between the ICC and a member country that governs participation in ICC events. BCCI was firm at its decision for the support for the old revenue system.

Acting BCCI president C. K. Khanna ended the speculation surrounding India's participation in the Champions Trophy, confirming to Sportstar that the team will not be withdrawn from the tournament.

The CEO of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, Rahul Johri, today launched the new Indian team jersey with official team sponsors Oppo's name on the shirt's front here, in the presence of some top officials of the Chinese mobile phone firm.

On Friday, the Committee of Administrators (CoA) had warned the Board to refrain from taking any decision that might harm the interests of Indian cricket.


That is four threatened boycotts, under four different pretexts, by the defending champions since the last edition of the Champions Trophy was played in 2013.

The CoA, in its communications to the BCCI, has been stressing on the need to negotiate with the ICC rather than adopting an inflexible approach.

So when will I know what happens next?
