The tussle between the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) is unlikely to end, as a fresh round of squabbling has erupted between the two.

Meanwhile, CoA has notified acting board secretary, Amitabh Choudhary that he will have to spend from his pocket if he wishes to stay back following the ICC annual conference.

Meanwhile, the annual conference is likely to take place from June 28 to July 2 in Dublin, Ireland.

Choudhury, however, is likely to stay back for the three-match T20I series against England.

The Committee of Administrators has taken note of your email. Although you have not sought approval from the CoA for your travels abroad, permission is granted for you to travel only to Dublin for attending the ICC meetings from June 28 to July 2,” the CoA’s mail read.

Kindly ensure that expenses towards ticketing and hotel stay is up to the extent borne by ICC. From the contents of your email, the CoA does not see any value addition to the BCCI in your merely watching the three-T20 India-England games in England. Hence, if you wish to attend these games, kindly ensure that BCCI does not incur any expenses in this regard,” the mail further read.

BCCI has also issued a reply

BCCI CEO, Rahul Johri has also sent a similar mail in reply to CoA’s mail. He has informed he will be returning to the country after watching the first two England T20Is.

I will be travelling to Dublin on June 26 and return to Mumbai on July 8 as I will stay back to attend the first two games of the India-England series on July 3 and July 6. This is for your information,” Johri’s mail read.

Significantly, ICC’s annual conference starts from June 28 while the first India-Ireland T20I is also in Dublin on June 27. Later, the men-in-blue will face hosts England in a three-match T20I series, starting July 3.
