The Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) president, N Srinivasan will probably push for rights for India to host an International Cricket Council  (ICC) event once every three years, at the ICC board meeting in Dubai on January 28 and 29.

The final call will be taken by Srinivasan after he discusses the matter with his BCCI colleagues at a committee meeting on Thursday, reported the Times of India.

The BCCI wants to confirm India as the biggest money making power in the cricketing world during the Dubai meeting and also is expected to push for a 70 per cent share in the ICC’s new profit sharing model.

The Indian cricket board is expected to convince the ICC to scrap the idea of a ICC Test Championship and continue on with the ICC Champions Trophy in its place instead, since they feel that the tournament has a massive fan following across Indian fans throughout the world.

Also according to reports from the finance committee, members were informed that the BCCI had almost doubled its profits from the Indian Premier League’s (IPL) sixth edition held in 2013 than the fifth edition which was held in 2012.

The BCCI had profited almost Rs 385.36 crores from IPL 6 and Rs 174.73 crore from IPL 5.

Though the BCCI has to pay a sum of Rs 550 crore in form of tax, the board members have filed for an appeal in many tribunals to waiver the taxes levied against them.

The committee has also allowed secretary Sanjay Patel, cricket operations chief MV Shridhar, treasurer Anirudh Chaudhary and IPL CEO Sundar Raman to use credit cards with a cash limit of Rs 10 lakh.
