…The current model gives greater power to the BCCI, Cricket Australia and the ECBTHE Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will oppose the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) “Big Three” model ahead of the chief executives committee meeting in April.The “Big Three” model introduced in 2014 saw the ICC give greater financial power to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Cricket Australia and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).While the ICC are trying to make changes, the BCCI recently passed a unanimous resolution to ask them to retain the model until its annual general meeting in June.“A resolution has been passed at the SGM that we will ask ICC to carry on with the existing model where Australia, England and India get the lion’s share of revenue,” ESPN quoted a top official as saying. “We will definitely work out a new model during the London meeting. This was today unanimously passed by the forum.”However, the PCB is against the move with chief Shahryar Khan saying that Pakistan have already suffered due to the revenue model. They will also press a case against the BCCI in May’s meeting for their refusal to play a full bilateral tie against them since 2007.“We were always against the Big Three revenue model,” Khan said, as quoted on CricBuzz. “Pakistan has suffered a lot because of it as India didn’t fulfill the bilateral commitments with us. We will oppose it again if BCCI brings it up for discussion.”“As far as my understanding goes, the final constitution could be formally adopted in June only. The upcoming meetings will decide that.”The chief executives committee meeting of the ICC member boards will take place on 24 April.
