Dubai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will have its task cut as the richest cricket Board in the world pushes for lion's share of revenue from International Cricket Council's (ICC) earnings along with England and Australia at the two-day executive board meeting of the governing body here on Tuesday. It will be a 'three versus seven' fight at the meeting with BCCI, Cricket Australia (CA) and England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) having prepared a 'Position Paper' which will allow these three Boards to control the parent body's functioning. In fact BCCI has already made it clear that their participation in the future ICC events (50 and 20 over World Cups) would be decided subject to approval of the 'Position Paper'.
As per ICC rules, seven of the 10 Board members (Test-playing nations) need to approve the controversial proposal but the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) and Cricket South Africa (CSA) have already publicly expressed their dissatisfaction with the contents of the 'Position Paper'.
It has been learnt that BCCI also wants an ICC event every two years in India and also wants to overrule the ICC's FTP (Future Tours & Programme) by engaging into direct discussions with respective cricket boards for bilateral series. (Read: PCB to oppose any change)
