India to participate in ICC Champions Trophy, confirms BCCI

BCCI has given a green signal for Indian cricket team to play in the ICC Champions Trophy

The members of BCCI met with the CoA (Committee of Administrators), appointed by the Supreme Court of India at the Special General Meeting (SGM) held in Delhi on Sunday (May 7, 2017) to discuss about India’s Champions Trophy participation.

At the end of the meeting, BCCI confirmed India’s participation in the upcoming Champions Trophy. This brought an end to speculations of India’s withdrawal.

According to hindustan times , Senior official Rajeev Shukla informed that the decision was unanimous with no one raising objections.

“The acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary has been given full authority to talk to ICC and arrive at a deal that is best for BCCI. We don’t want to pursue any legal case and don’t want a confrontational approach,” said Shukla.

India’s 15 member squad is scheduled to be announced on Monday (May 8, 2017).
