The current unrest between the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the International Cricket Council (ICC) has left the Indian cricketers in a state of confusion. Virat Kohli and co. have no idea whatsoever whether they will be able to feature in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, which is scheduled to be played in England and Wales from June 1.

Keeping in mind the seriousness of the situation, BCCI and CoA members will meet for the SGM on May 7 to uncover India's fate of ICC Champions Trophy. Vinod Rai, the head of the CoA, has said that BCCI may announce India's squad for the Champions Trophy on May 7.

"There is no such thing as a deadline. The Champions Trophy will start on June 1. The deadlines are fixed so that there is some kind of system in place. We are ready with all possible scenarios. So let the process happen which is supposed to take place and then we will see what to do. I can't say it in advance. I am confident that it will be a good decision. Whatever decision you want, that will happen, but by chance if it doesn't happen, then we will see. It is a part of the game. Let it unfold slowly, let's see how it progresses, what happens," Rai said.

So everything depends on that SGM meeting. Billions of fans are looking up to this meeting as they all want to see their favourite superstars on the field yet again, trying to defend their title.
