ndia’s participation in the upcoming Champions Trophy in United Kingdom under a cloud. BCCI had not named its squad for the tournament by the April 25 deadline as it was waiting for the conclusion of the ICC meeting.

As of now, the joint secretary will go back and an emergent SGM will be called. He will then apprise the General Body about the developments and an appropriate decision will be taken.”
“The ICC is yet to tell us what is the basis on which a nation like Singapore stands to gain more. What exactly are the grounds? Can they explain how are they trying to cut down the Operational Costs of ICC which is USD 160 million?” he said.
