Srinivasan joins BCCI SGM from London

Lalit Modi shares Dhoni's India Cements 'contract' on social media

India have finally confirmed their participation in next month's Champions Trophy.

The All-India Senior Selection Meeting will now be held tomorrow, May 8, in New Delhi to pick the team for the Champions Trophy.

"The BCCI SGM unanimously decided that the Indian cricket team will participate in the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy", it said in a statement.

Sources told TOI that the representatives of BCCI's affiliated bodies, who met the CoA in the capital on Saturday ahead of the crucial Special General Meeting, were also asked to present a consolidated list of grievances regarding the Lodha committee's administrative reforms, which they have been unable to implement due to "practical problems".

Even though Srinivasan was earlier keen on a pullout, he refrained from speaking about it after gauging the general mood. They also ignored the 25th April deadline set by the ICC to reveal the squad for the matches.Veteran cricketers like Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar, and Rahul Dravid were in favor of playing the tournament. Mid-day learns that most cricket officials except those from the south zone are on the same page as the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) where sending the team to defend their Champions Trophy crown is concerned.

The one-state-one-vote clause would lead to associations like the Mumbai Cricket Association, the Maharashtra Cricket Association, and the Cricket Club of India losing their full membership of the Board.

The point 13 of the letter stated COA would support any decision "which protects the interests of Indian cricket as a whole". "We will inform the Supreme Court about their concerns", a source close to COA said.

The COA had advised BCCI members to exercise discretion while taking any extreme step.

BCCI's current joint secretary, Amitabh Choudhary, has been given the task of cracking a deal with the ICC on its behalf while keeping the legal options open.
