BCCI ends speculations, confirms India's participation in Champions Trophy

Mahendra Singh was Chennai Super Kings skipper till 2015 IPL

Changes to revenue-sharing arrangements and governance had seen the country's cricket board threaten to pull the team from the competition, which takes place in the United Kingdom in June.

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 worldwide body, the letter came amid speculation that the BCCI was seriously mulling a pullout.

India missed the initial deadline of April 25 to name their squad - a date met by all other participating nations - but will face no sanction for the delay.

The decision was taken here at a Board of Control for Cricket in India's special general meeting. The BCCI was outvoted 13-1 last week at the ICC meetings in its bid to stall the new deal which considerably slashes India's share from global events in the 2015-2023 cycle. "The Supreme Court passed a judgement that he won't be allowed to attend the ICC meeting but it was never clarified whether he is ineligible to attend the SGM", a senior BCCI official told PTI today.

Nashville Tops St. Louis
The last time the Ducks lost their first two at home, the Predators knocked them out of the first round a year ago in seven games. The Predators never got the man advantage in Game 2, and they got their first almost midway through the first period.

With the new revenue model getting the nod, BCCI will now have to do with what they have in the eight-year cycle.

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surrounding India's participation in the Champions Trophy, confirming to Sportstar that the team will not be withdrawn from the tournament. My view is that India must take part in the Champions Trophy.

The BCCI said it was keeping its legal options open, indicating the row was far from over.

"It was a unanimous decision that the Indian team will be participating in the Champions Trophy". The CoA had pointed out to the BCCI that ICC chairman Shashank Manohar "has made an offer of a $100 million more" to the Indian board, and sending the ICC a legal notice at that point would have jeopardised negotiations at a "delicate and critical stage".
