India will take part in the upcoming International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy following the BCCI's approval on Sunday.

Former president N Srinivasan attended the SGM via Skype but refrained from speaking about a pull-out after gauging the general mood. The Champions Trophy will commence from next month, June 1 in England and Whales.

However, it was decided at a special general meeting held in New Delhi that India will take their place in the one-day global showpiece, where they are due to take on Pakistan in their first match on June 4. Two days ago, Rai as good as instructed BCCI joint secretary Amitabh Choudhary to convene a meeting of the selection committee to pick the squad as soon as the SGM gets over. The ICC Board had approved a new constitution, a new governance structure, and a new finance model, with the other Full Members outvoting the BCCI. The squad will be named tomorrow, the Indian board said in a release. "CoA head Vinod Rai in fact said, we can enter into a confrontation (with ICC) anytime, but it is always good to do so when we are in an advantageous position, and we agreed to it", said a head of an association which is in favour of sending the team to England.

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.

"The Board unanimously authorised the acting honorary secretary of the BCCI to continue negotiations with the ICC in the best interest of the BCCI while keeping its legal options open", it said in the statement.

The committee headed by former Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) Vinod Rai has made a decision to accommodate the BCCI's concerns on three of the most contentious Lodha Committee recommendations and the Board has chose to drop its hostile stance towards COA.
