BCCI Vice President Rajiv Shukla has rubbished rumours of India not participating in the upcoming Champions Trophy. Shukla laid to rest all the media reports which claimed that former cricketer Laxman Sivaramakrishnan's appointment to the International Cricket Council (ICC) has led to India’s pulling out of the Champions trophy scheduled for June in UK. The controversy erupted when Sivaramakrishnan replaced Tim May on the ICC technical committee as the player’s representative. May is the Chief Executive of the Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations (FICA).
