Kolkata :The controversial players' terms, which had rocked the 2002 Champions Trophy, would not have any effect in the this year's event as an agreement has already been reached to adhere to the altered terms for the Indian players as followed in the 2003 World Cup in South Africa.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Jagmohan Dalmiya said in Kolkata that all the concerned parties have agreed that the same terms, which were followed in the 2003 World Cup would be followed this time also.

Dalmiya, who was speaking on the eve of his departure for London to attend the annual meeting of the International Cricket Council (ICC), also said that there would not be any confusion this time.

The Indian cricketers had refused to sign the players' terms of ICC before the 2002 Champions Trophy in Sri Lanka and a crisis had been averted only after ICC had agreed to alter the terms to suit the Indian cricketers.

The Champions Trophy this year would be played in England from September 10 to 25 in which 12 teams - ten full members with Kenya and United States - would be participating.

Dalmiya had been in touch with the ICC bosses in recent times and had also attended a crucial meeting in Dubai where apart from the crisis in Zimbabwe cricket other important issues had also been discussed.
