“I was invited as BCCI director on the ICC Board. I represent India at the ICC and ACC. The atmosphere has been vitiated and I have cancelled the ticket to Colombo,” said Choudhary. 

On Thursday the CoA had issued a directive that office bearers and their assistants have to take prior permission of the CoA for all official work. It’s obvious that Choudhary doesn’t want to heed to the specific directive.
