His statement has some in wake of the Lodha committee recommendations, according to which there should be a difference of 15 days between IPL ad Champions Trophy. Going by this, Indian team is not allowed to participate the Champions trophy that is scheduled to start on June 1.

“If we agree on Lodha recommendations in total, India will not play champions trophy 2017,” Anurag Thakur said while talking to media. Now this has come as a big surprise as the statement has been given by none other than by the President of BCCI himself.

A few days back, Anurag Thakur said that Indian will not play any match against Pakistan and will forfeit the game awarding two points to Pakistan in case if they are grouped in the same group along with Pakistan. His comments on Champions trophy has come when he was asked about a situation when India and Pakistan are scheduled to play a knockout game.
