BCCI ignores deadline of naming Indian squad for Champions Trophy
New Delhi: At one hand everyone is gearing up for the ICC Champions Trophy while on the other hand Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has missed the April 25, the final date, of announcing the Indian squad for the contest.
All countries including Pakistan have already picked their squads for the Champions Trophy.
The move came amid tensions between ICC and BCCI on several issues.
Earlier, apart from the representatives of India and Sri Lanka, all other ICC Board members voted in favour of reformed revenue sharing structure model, thus, paving way for it to get clearance in ICC’s April Board meeting, despite strong opposition from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
According to the ICC constitution, countries can announce their squads after the deadline in certain circumstances.
Reacting over the same, BCCI has said that naming the squad is nothing more than a formality.
It may be mentioned here that Champions Trophy will be played between June 1 to June 18 in United Kingdom.
