The Committee of Administrators has asked the Indian Cricket Board to name the Champions Trophy squad. India have missed the deadline of naming the squad for the upcoming tournament in the United Kingdom.

“You are aware that the squad representing India at the ICC tournament was to be submitted by April 25 but the squad has not even been selected as yet,” Committee of Administrators said.

“Please convene a meeting of the selection committee for selecting the squad immediately,” the Committee added. “The squad can then be submitted to the ICC without prejudice to BCCI’s legal rights.”
