Angry BCCI threatens to pull out of Champions Trophy 2017

Angry BCCI mulls pulling out of Champions Trophy 2017

BCCI against two-tier Test system - Thakur

Thakur's comments seemed to address both concerns as he spelt out the drawbacks of the two-tier system. "In the two-tier system, they will lose out on a lot, including revenue and the opportunity to play against top teams," he said. "We don't want that to happen. We want to work in the best interests of world cricket and that is why our team plays against all the countries". 

Miffed at being snubbed by the International Cricket Committee (ICC) over various recent decisions, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is mulling at the possibility of pulling out of next year's Champions Trophy, scheduled to be held in England.

The BCCI had recently complained about the ICC's decision to allocate $135 million as expenses for the upcoming 2017 ICC Champions Trophy and compared it with the $45 million that was allocated to the Indian board for the recently concluded 2016 Men and Women's T20 WC, thereby questioning the logic for the three-fold increase in budgetary allocations for the Champions Trophy.
