Chennai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India is not sitting on "pots of money" as is being made out and it shared revenues with players and state associations for promoting the sport, new International Cricket Council Chairman N Srinivasan said on Tuesday.
"BCCI is often much misunderstood. You really do not hear what BCCI has done. It has generated more revenue from 2004 and it has ensured returns for all its state members. 25 state members share the money generated through media rights and sponsors," he said here.
