Mumbai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Tuesday defended its move to demand a lion's share of financial proceeds earned by the ICC by saying it was a "legitimate right issue" and was also "just and fair".
"This legitimate right issue has been put up before the full members of ICC. It is nothing but a just and fair right that we are asking for. It is not any muscle flexing, but only our legitimate right," BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel said here.
"For the first time in the history of the BCCI, as a full member of ICC, this has been put up by president N Srinivasan. He has worked out very good details and very good options," he said.
