The BCCI will be paying the ICC a hefty sum of Rs. 2.4 crores soon. The reason being that it is the payment meant to be made for carrying an extra member in the Indian squad for the ICC World Cup 2015 in Australia. It must be remembered that pacer Dhawal Kulkarni had travelled along the Indian team during the course of the World Cup.
Despite naming a 15 member squad, the Indian think tank had chosen Kulkarni as the 16th member, and officially used him as a “backroom” staff. As per the ICC guidelines, teams are allowed to carry only 15 players in their squad in ICC tournaments. Kulkarni was taken as a sudden backup, in case any of the pacers got injured midway. India’s pace bowling spearhead Mohammad Shami was already participating in the World Cup with a serious knee injury back then.
A note was put up on the BCCI website, explaining the same matter. “Airfare, accommodation, per diem and catering charges incurred for additional team members during ICC CWC 2015,” the note on the website mentioned.
The BCCI will also be the ICC an additional amount of USD 3,80,000 “towards ACSU services for IPL 2015.” Former pacer Zaheer Khan too will be paid for Rs 81.12 lakh “towards loss of pay rpt pay for IPL 2014”.
