India within rights to boycott ICC Champions Trophy, says Sunil Gavaskar

Former India skipper Sunil Gavaskar said fears of a global boycott if the BCCI pulled out of the ICC Champions Trophy, in retaliation to the global body slashing its share of revenue, were unfounded.

The Indian cricket Board is again on the path of confrontation with the International Cricket Council, and unless the issue is resolved within days, the BCCI could take the drastic step of pulling out of the ICC Champions Trophy in England starting on June 1.

The mini-crisis has been triggered after the ICC Board this week adopted a revised revenue and administrative model, nullifying the 2014 Big Three plan pushed through by India under N Srinivasan giving India, Australia and England the lion's share of global cricket revenues.

The BCCI has not named the Champions Trophy squad and the deadline of April 25 has passed. The BCCI has called for an SGM on May 7 to decide its response after the loss of face in the Dubai meetings where every other full member Board backed the revamped revenue plan.
