Pakistan to oppose ‘Big 3’ model at ICC CEC meeting

CricketPakistan to oppose 'Big 3' model at ICC CEC meeting

NEW DELHI: BCCI officials are keen that the International Cricket Council sticks to the ‘Big Three’ model which would let BCCI take a large chunk of ICC’s revenue. However, India’s neighbour, Pakistan, isn’t amused.

Ahead of the Chief Executives Committee (CEC) meeting of the ICC member boards on April 24, Shahryar Khan, chief of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), dismissed the idea. “We were always against the Big Three revenue model. Pakistan has suffered a lot because of it as India didn’t fulfil the bilateral commitments with us. We will oppose it again if BCCI brings it up for discussion,” Khan told TOI from Lahore on Friday.Shaharyar Khan
Khan said that the ICC board members are going to take a call on that. “As far as my understanding goes, the final constitution could be formally adopted in June only. The upcoming meetings will decide that,” Khan added.
Besides Pakistan, there are several other boards who are against the model.
Source said that BCCI’s acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary, who met the Committee of Administrators (CoA) in Mumbai on Friday, was told not to take an extreme position while discussing the revenue model at the ICC meeting.

Choudhary was also briefed by the CoA about the range of dialogues that they had with other members over the last two weeks. “Amitabh was informed about the latest position after the CoA spoke to other Test-playing nations over ICC’s revenue sharing model,” the source said.
