India to participate in Champions Trophy cricket: BCCI

India will participate in next month’s Champions Trophy in England and Wales, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said after a special general meeting on Sunday.

Holders India did not submit a squad for the one-day international tournament by an April 25 deadline after the BCCI failed in a bid to halt a new revenue model being adopted by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

According to a report on India Today website, national team cricketers had been calling the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) to enquire about their chances of travelling to England for the prestigious tournament which begins from 1 June.

BCCI was the only full member to object to ICC’s new financial model besides being just one of two full members to vote against the new changes in governance. India won the tournament in 2013, but may not get the opportunity to defend their title.
