Mumbai:

BCCI Secretary Ajay Shirke on Wednesday admitted there was a "difference of opinion" with the International Cricket Council (ICC) but it did not amount to "stand-off" with the world body.

"There is no stand-off with anybody, it is being created by you the media. Yes (all is well between BCCI and ICC). They are our parent body. We have differences, there is no stand-off. We had differences on the two-tier structure, it is settled, they withdrew it," said Shirke.

Asked about no BCCI representative in ICC's Finance Committee, Shirke said, "we have differences and they will settle. They will hear us out and give us a hearing, if they don't give us justice then there may be a stand-off".

BCCI President Anurag Thakur has been at loggerheads with ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar over reported allocation of USD 135m for Champions Trophy, two-tier system in Tests and centralised marketing of the broadcast rights of bilateral series.
