There is some bad news for the affiliated units of the BCCI as they will be getting a significantly lesser share of the pie due to cut in sponsorship and media rights money, according to the finance committee report that was tabled in Chennai Friday.

A notable incident at the finance committee meeting was the objection raised by former BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah and Vidarbha CA representative Kishore Dewani regarding not being shown a copy of annual accounts beforehand, which could have led to analysis and discussions.
