The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has paid out the International Cricket Council (ICC) around Rs 2.4 crore for various charges incurred for the Indian squad taking ‘additional team members’ during the ICC World Cup 2015 conducted earlier this year.
Mumbai pacer, Dhawal Kulkarni, was certainly one of the additional members of the Indian squad during the World Cup held in Australia and New Zealand. ICC principles permit only 15 members to be authorized as players for the World Cup. India, therefore, had mentioned pacer Kulkarni, who stayed on with the squad at the conclusion of the preceding ODI tri-series, as part of the team management, according to reports.

The BCCI in addition has paid the community cricket body a further amount of USD 3,80,000 “towards ACSU services for IPL 2015.”
