The ICC general counsel and company secretary Jonathan Hall has written to his counter-part in the BCCI asking him to prove the steps taken by India for tax exemption on events. Additionally, the governing council and the cricket board also engaged in ugly mails concerning the T20 World Cup 2021 and 2023 World Cup which are slated to take place in India, the Times of India reported.

According to the report, the Indian board has tried to take the matter to the government but due to the Covid-19 situation, it has found difficult to find immediate solution to the problems. However, the governing council is least bothered about the Covid-19 situation, and said the cricket board had enough years to make necessary arrangements.

What is at stake for BCCI now?

The cricket board has informed the governing council about a ‘force majeure’ with the Covid-19 situation a step that they have taken with the official broadcasters as far as the IPL is concerned. The cricket board has withheld India’s US$23 million which has taken the legal route already.

Sources in the know of things however, has told the TOI, that the IBC is entitled to terminate the agreement with the cricket board if thing don’t fall in place. Which means India could lose the hosting rights for the events in 2021 and 2023.

The cricket board, has however, written to the governing council to extend the date by June 30.
