ICC in favour of the changed revenue distribution model but BCCI opposed.

Published on February 5, 2017 by   ·   No Comments

The major section of ICC Board members favoured the changed revenue distribution model but BCCI representative Vikram Limaye voted against it.

Countries like South Africa, West Indies, Pakistan, New Zealand, Australia, and England suppported for change in revenue distribution and governance structure. According to the move called ‘BIG THREE’ – India, England and Australia were supposed to get the major part of revenue.

BCCI representative Vikram Limaye checked the official document and clearly stated that he opposes the document based on “faith and equity”. BCCI is expected to gain more than Rs.2000crore.

The Chairman Shashank Manohar mentioned that the changed revenue model and revised governance structure are welcomed by the ICC Board and now they will work for final sign off at April Board meeting.

The changed revenue model is expected to ensure a fair distribution of revenues and the new governance structure is expected to propose an introduction of  a female director; to have only two categories of Full Member and Associate Member; equal weight of votes for all Board Members.

According to Chief Executive Committee, the plan of using DRS at ICC Champions Trophy 2017 and all international cricket will be in light in May by ICC.
