BCCI pays Rs 2 crore to ICC for extra member
Wednesday 16 December 2015

BCCI has paid the International Cricket Council (ICC) an amount of around Rs 2.4 crore for various charges incurred for the Indian squad as they were carrying “additional team members” during the World Cup held earlier this year.

Mumbai pacer Dhawal Kulkarni was among the additional members of the Indian squad during the World Cup held in Australia and New Zealand.

ICC rules allow only 15 members to be registered as players in the World Cup tournament.

However, India had listed pacer Kulkarni, who stayed on with the team at the conclusion of the preceding ODI tri-series, as part of the team management, according to the then news reports.

The amount, USD 3,70,111.96 that has been converted to Rs 2,43,500,36 at the conversion rate of Rs 65.791 to a dollar and paid to ICC as payment towards “airfare, accommodation, per diem and catering charges incurred for additional team members during ICC CWC 2015,” the note on the Board’s website says.
