ICC Champions Trophy: Indian Team Selection On Monday
However, in a short statement attributed to BCCI secretary Amitabh Choudhary, those fears were allayed - and India will therefore defend the title they won four years ago, also in England.

Holders India did not submit a squad for the one-day worldwide tournament by an April 25 deadline after the BCCI failed in a bid to halt a new revenue model being adopted by the ICC.
Coming out as a good news to all the cricket fans out there, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in its Special General Meeting (SGM) held today morning has cleared the participation of the Indian cricket team in the upcoming International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy.
India missed the initial deadline of April 25 to name their squad - a date met by all other participating nations - but will face no sanction for the delay.
Unimpressed by the $293 million forecast, down from the $570 million it would have received under a 2014 arrangement, the BCCI responded by refusing to name a squad for the June 1-18 eight-team competition. The CoA had pointed out to the BCCI that ICC chairman Shashank Manohar "has made an offer of a $100 million more" to the Indian board, and sending the ICC a legal notice at that point would have jeopardised negotiations at a "delicate and critical stage".
The BCCI members had held a meeting with the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) on Saturday where it was decided that BCCI would avoid a confrontational approach. We will not take any legal recourse in the matter.
At last month's ICC meetings, the BCCI was outvoted 13-1 in its bid to halt the revised deal which considerably slashes India's share from global events in the 2015-2023 cycle.
