The Committee of Administrators (CoA) and the BCCI have not prepared any note seeking a ban on Pakistan from participating in the upcoming World in England.

“There is absolutely no constitutional or contractual way this could happen. The ICC constitution allows members the right to participate in ICC events as long as they’ve qualified,” a BCCI official told PTI.

According to a top BCCI official, even if a note is sent to governing body of international cricket regarding to restrict Pakistan from competing, India is likely to lose as member nations won’t support BCCI’s idea.

“In case India writes to ICC for Pakistan’s removal, then we have to build consensus first to move a resolution at it’s Annual Board Meeting in April. We no longer enjoy majority in the ICC board right now. If this goes for floor Test we are certain to lose,” he said. “Not only that, serious doubts will emerge on our chances to host 2021 Champions Trophy and 2023 World Cup,” he added.
