    Is he deliberately trying to wind the ECB up?

    Modi has announced the dates for the 2010 Champions League - slap bang in the middle of the end of the English county season, this is after the ECB brought the end of the season forward so as to avoid a clash with the Champions League.

    What was wrong with the dates last year (which IIRC didn't clash with any domestic season)?

    I'm sure there is an amount of money that can be reached to solve this problem.

    Why is Modi the one that chooses the date for the Champions Trophy anyway?

    The Champions Trophy involves more than just Indian teams, shouldn't it be an ICC matter to decide on timing and whatnot?

    No, it's owned by 50% BCCI, 30% CA, 20% CSA.

    ECB did not want to join initially, so they are not part of the governing council of the Champions League.

    Then it is more like the Pakistan IPL angle. But CA and CSA might put pressure on the BCCI to reconsider the issue, which the IPL lacked.

    Considering all three countries decided on the schedule, I doubt it.

    FTP is different for this year for the three countries involved in the governing council.

    So annoying, the way the Champions League is only run by three teams. Schedules should be organised further in advance, it would be easier for the ECB to change things if there was more certainty too. There's no guarantee an English team is even going to be invited, as far as I understand.

    The ECB will probably send them a stern letter and remind them that England won the Ashes.

    TBH, ECB was invited to be on the governing body and offered the biggest share after the BCCI. They refused on the grounds that they were throwing in their lot with Stanford......

    The other three countries took all the risk getting the tournament off the ground, and organizing it. A bit late to join the party...

    Lalit Modi asks ECB for 'minor adjustment' in its domestic schedule | India Cricket News | Cricinfo.com

    Sound's like he's just throwing his weight around to me, trying to see what he can and cannot make the ECB do.
