New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has been arguing against new International Cricket Council (ICC) chief Shashank Manohar's suggestion to bring some equity to revenue sharing by abolishing the Big Three model.
According to an Indian Express report, the BCCI will certainly lose Rs 1000 crore, but will still end up making the most money among all the Test playing nations.
The big three model allows India (20.3%), England (4.4%) and Australia (2.7%) the lion's share of revenue from the 2015-2023 cycle - a move which was engineered by former BCCI president N Srinivasan. However, the current ICC regime thinks it amounts to bullying of smaller cricketing nations.
Before the Big Three model, all Test playing nations would get an equal $67 million each.
