Money will rain on BCCI
ICC will be entitled to 39% revenue
New Delhi: The International Cricket Council (ICC) has unanimously passed the revenue distribution model at its board meeting in Durban on Thursday. In this, it has been decided that the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) will get about 39 percent of the annual income of the ICC. Which is the highest compared to other countries.
However, the media release by the ICC has not mentioned how much revenue the BCCI will get from this model. But the Indian board is expected to earn $230 million annually out of $600 million in the next four years.
This total revenue is about 38.4 percent and is at least six times more than the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), which received $41 million at 6.89 percent, and Cricket Australia (Cricket Australia) at $37.5 million (approx. 6.25 percent) will be available. They are on the second and third position respectively in the list.
The ICC has also set limits on foreign cricketers for teams in various leagues, so that in the new competitions, each team will be able to field only four foreign players in their team. This is mainly for T20 leagues starting around every corner which is posing a threat to the international format of the game.
