New Delhi: Jan 20, 2014 

The Emergent Working Committee of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in Chennai on Thursday has been summoned to discuss Board’s desire to name president N Srinivasan‘s name for first chairman of the International Cricket Council although his name needs to be passed at a governing body meeting. The Board also wants to push for lion’s share from International Cricket Council‘s (ICC) revenue earnings, at the parent body’s executive board meeting in Dubai on January 28 and 29.

“The meeting has been summoned to apprise and get the working committee’s nod for pushing BCCI’s case of getting more revenue from ICC’s earnings as bulk of it is generated by the Indian cricket board,” BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel told PTI.

BCCI president N Srinivasan during the end of last year had met Cricket Australia chairman Wally Edwards to discuss the issue of revenue sharing model and expressed his intentions about what the Indian cricket board feels on the matter.

When Patel was asked whether India will push for at least 70 percent on a new profit-sharing model, the secretary replied, “That can’t be said at the moment. Obviously that’s one of the revenue models but there are a few alternative profit-sharing models also which we would be looking at. Basically, we will have a discussion on all aspects and look at the best possible solution”.

It is already known that BCCI president has promised that all the affiliated units will be getting a bigger share of the booty and the decision to push for greater pie was expected to be unanimous.

As far as Srinivasan’s name being pushed for ICC chairmanship, it can’t technically happen at the working committee meeting but can always come up for discussion.

“The issue can come up for discussion at the WC meeting but it doesn’t have the powers to clear Mr Srinivasan’s name. Obviously, he will be the unanimous choice but it would need to be cleared at a governing body meeting,” a senior state unit office-bearer said.

The meeting in Dubai is set to feature a change in ICC set-up with BCCI, England Cricket Board (ECB) and CA gaining more control than the other units in every aspect of parent body’s functioning.
