The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is working on idea of sending the International Cricket Council (ICC) a show cause notice. The decision to send a show cause notice will be taken after Special General Meeting (SGM) to be held on June 7. The Committee of Administrators (CoA) and the BCCI office-bearers so far have refrained from taking any call on why the naming of the squad for ICC Champions Trophy 2017 has been delayed. It is also being speculated that the BCC might pull India out of the Champions Trophy. BCCI denies reports of non-payments of Indian players
According Times of India, the BCCI will sent a notice 200 per cent in the coming days. The notice will be sent in regards to the BCCI asking ICC why they [India] should not exercise its rights and privileges under the Members Participation Agreement (MPA). This notice is sure to stir up a uproar in the cricketing circles namely the stakeholders of the game. Once the notice is served it is compulsory for the ICC to forward BCCI’s grievance to its dispute committee.
“If BCCI does not send the notice, then it’s either agreeing to what is being offered by ICC and its chairman ShashankManohar or it’s mea culpa (acknowledgement that they’re wrong),” an official was quoted as saying.
Earlier in the week, BCCI functionary Rajiv Shukla asserted that it would not be right for India to pull out of the Champions Trophy in its act of defiance over the ICC’s revised financial model, saying such a move could see them isolated in world cricket. “Whatever has happened in Dubai is unfortunate. Whatever share we were demanding, we did not get that,” Shukla told ANI.”
