Teams at senior ICC events allowed additional seven members

The International Cricket Council (ICC), in its latest board meeting, has decided to allow seven more members in the touring party of all teams for the senior ICC events in order to stay ahead of the complications that might occur due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The ICC board meeting and the Cricket Committee meeting took place concurrently with a range of important decisions taken in the due course. While the Cricket Committee had earlier made minor changes to the “Umpire’s Call” with the height margin of the Wicket Zone being lifted to the top of the stumps, compared to the bottom of the bails, the board meeting had other logistical challenges in mind.

Until now, every team in the senior ICC events were allowed to bring a total of 23 members with them - 15 players and eight support staff - but as India’s tour of Australia and Sri Lanka’s tour of South Africa suggested, a small squad is never enough. 

According to the latest reports on ESPN Cricinfo, teams will be allowed to take up to seven additional players or support staff, thus making it a 30-member contingent. The maximum playing contingent has been capped at 22. 

It has also been reported that there was a positive discussion between the ICC and the BCCI regarding the Indian Government exempting taxes for the ICC events taking place in India. The BCCI have so far failed twice in its attempt to submit the document for the 2021 ICC T20 World Cup but sounded affirmative that they would find a way even if that would mean losing out money from their ICC grants.
