ICC's move to do away with 'Big Three' will hurt BCCI, says N Srinivasan's camp
Not all are happy about Manohar's move in the cricketing circles.
New Delhi: In its first meeting of 2016 after Shashank Manohar took over as ICC Chairman, world cricket's governing body on Thursday agreed that the current system, put in place by controversial former head N Srinivasan, needed to be done away with.
In fact the Manohar-led ICC suggested complete review of the constitutional changes made in 2014 by the Tamil Nadu strongman that gave enormous powers to the 'Big Three' with bulk of the revenue share going their way.
While Manohar's move was appreciated by majority of the stakeholders, not all are happy about it in the cricketing circles.
According to a report in the Times of India, members of the Srinivasan camp feel a revamp of the current system would lead to a decrease in revenues for the Indian board.
“Did Manohar call a BCCI working committee meeting to in form that a step like that would be taken? When Srinivasan proposed the revenue model, it was discussed. It's only the BCCI that is going to suffer if the revenue model formulated by Srinivasan goes into cold storage,” an official close to former BCCI president Srinivasan said.
