The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) won’t bid but will seek to host three events within the next cycle of Futures Tours Programme (FTP) of the International Cricket Council (ICC). the choice was taken at an Apex Council meeting of the BCCI on Sunday (June 20). it’ll ask the ICC regarding this in Dubai.
BCCI’s decision is predominantly supported two factors – fundamentally the board is against the newly-introduced system of bidding which its officials had previously opposed at the discussion stage. Secondly the BCCI thinks that holding an ICC event is the maximum amount in cricket world’s interest the maximum amount as India’s. It expects the ICC to allot a Champions Trophy, a Twenty20 World Cup and an ODI World Cup from the 2024-31 cycle.
The BCCI is additionally sensitive to the very fact that it cannot guarantee tax exemption, which may be a pre-condition for hosting any ICC tournament in India. The Twenty20 World Cup , to be hosted this year by the BCCI, has not yet been granted tax exemption by the govt of India and there’s an issue mark over the exemption for the planet Cup here in 2023 too.
