All you need to know about changes made by ICC

BCCI

During the vote for the change in revenue and constitutional change, only Sri Lanka was the team that was with India, rest all other nations voted against India. It was a major drawback for BCCI, who seems to be miffed with the new revenue model. The new revenue model will almost half the revenue that BCCI were getting before, so as a sign of protest, BCCI has not yet announced the team for the Champions Trophy. Currently, BCCI is undergoing an SGM meeting and proceedings of the meeting will decide whether BCCI will take part in the Champions Trophy or not.

They are not happy that even Bangladesh didn’t vote for them. He also said that BCCI were quite patient during the whole meeting, but they were extremely disappointed with the proposal ICC president Shashank Manohar.
