BCCI SGM to be held on May 7
The National selectors are likely to name the team for the ICC Champions Trophy after the SGM
The Board of Control for Cricket in India will hold its Special General meeting on May 7 in New Delhi, it was confirmed on Friday (April 28). Discussions on the ICC revenue and India's participation in the upcoming Champions Trophy will be discussed in the meeting.
Earlier in the month, the Indian cricket board had rejected International Cricket Council's offer of $100 million as appeasement in return of lesser share in ICC's revenue. As per the new revenue structure, the BCCI will receive $293 million instead of USD 571 million.
With BCCI's share in the revenue taking a hit, there has been a lingering threat that India might withdraw from the upcoming Champions Trophy in June this year, unless their demands are met. They haven't even announced the squad for the mega-tournament, deadline for which was April 26.
The board is still confident that the viewership and sponsorship will take a hit without the presence of India in the tournament. An office bearer had earlier told PTI, "At this point pull-out is an option. The middle path is if they are ready to go up to $450 million since they were initially ready to pay $390. Also, no change in governance structure. Will Star Sports give them the same deal that they would give if Virat Kohli vs Mohammed Amir or Mitchell Starc vs MS Dhoni contest doesn't take place?"
