BCCI chief Anurag Thakur is part of ICC's powerful Finance and Commercial Affairs wing

Posted By: PTI

New Delhi, Oct 14: The International Cricket Council (ICC) seemed to have mended fences with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) as president Anurag Thakur is now officially a part of the powerful Finance & Commercial Affairs after completion of its board meeting in Cape Town today (October 14).

Focus on Anurag at BCCI meet

The F&CA wing is arguably one of the most powerful decision making sub-committee of ICC as all the revenue related financial aspects are passed through this committee.

The BCCI had raised objections about not having it's representative in F&CA committee and senior officials in the board termed it as a humiliation with Shashank Manohar being chairman of global body.

BCCI had also raised objections about the proposed budget for next year's Champions Trophy and board felt that their absence in F&CA has been a reason for it.

A BCCI source who is aware of the rules said that moment Thakur was made chairman of the Development Committee of ICC, he automatically became part of F&CA committee.

"The rule states that since Anurag has been made Chairman Development Committee, he is also member of the F&CA, Executive Committee (ExCo) and Governing Committee," the source told PTI.

While former president N Srinivasan, known for his tough stand, was the chairman of F&CA, Thakur's presence in the powerful committees will mean that BCCI will have a bigger say in revenue related decision as well as governance structure which includes whether the number of full member voters should be increased or not.
