India threatened Bangladesh that it will not participate in the upcoming World Cup T-20 and Asia Cup if Bangladesh does not support the revamp of administrative and financial structures of the ICC.
Indian newspaper Anandabazar Patrika reported about the threat today quoting N Srinivasan, head of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
The twelfth Asia Cup is scheduled to begin in Dhaka on February 25 while the ICC World Cup T-20 is set to kick off from March 16 in Dhaka.
It is now known that South Africa, Pakistan and Sri Lanka had formally written to the International Cricket Council, asking for a deferral of the "position paper" proposals being pushed through by the BCCI, Cricket Australia and the ECB, the three richest and most powerful cricket boards.
The Big three- India, England and Australia needed support of seven Full Member nations to implement their plan.
