    We've all heard it. Besides the loss in revenue

    [​IMG]

    borne only by the BCCI, the bigger change is in the scope of bilateral tours which would become compulsory between Test playing Nations striking down the biggest leverage India had with the otherwise loss-making corrupted boards in WI, SL, ZIM and BD -away tours. Which is why all the little rats which otherwise stayed hidden in their little sewers now jumped on our back in conjunction with the conniving Aussies and Brits.

    While I'm all for increasing funding for the associates it cannot solely be at the cost of the Indian viewers. Yes you the cricket viewer is funding these freeloaders. The advertisement costs are all passed down to us and not borne by advertisers themselves.

    So what should be our response?
    Skip CT?
    CANCEL all future tours to the ungrateful little weasels BD, ZIM, WI ,SL etc?
    Threaten to pull out of the ICC?

    seriously? the amount of corruption in each and every state and mohalla cricket boards in India itself will prevent an outright support to the BCCI even if BCCI is in the right. let them rot is my call. let cricket grow everywhere in the world even if it is with the viewers money. why should it go to make a few individuals richer by the millions and billions when it can go to increase the outreach of cricket?
    the general cricket viewer wants more diverse cricket from around the world - not filling the pockets of greasy old politicians who always become the head of cricket boards in India.

    What you are saying will come at the cost of aspiring players from Tier 2 cities of India.

    The extra funds which BCCI gets, which is rightly justified , has a big role in creation of infrastructure.

    SL did support a bit.

    But stop tours of Zimbabwe, stop tours of Bangladesh and stop supporting them for events like Asia Cup .

    Yes, pulling out will teach a much required lesson to many.

    ICC earns from India and it needs to give more to India.

    More than 75% of the revenues come from India , so BCCI is right in demanding atleast 33%.

    Basically equal to the rest of the world combined.

    And no cricket will never become popular in countries it is not already so. In fact it's popularity has declined everywhere, even in India.

    its a chicken and egg problem. you cant get more popularity without more investment. and you cannot invest more if you dont see any popularity increase.

    The problem is of the game itself. It has complex rules, requires a lot of gear, large grounds and takes a lot of time. Which is why football and basketball will always be more attractive than it for the average noob. Both in viewership and playability. Cricket is like measles, best to have it when you are young.

    England and Australia's machiavellian plot to deny India 70 per cent of cricket's global revenue
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/indiahom...ustralia-s-machiavellian-plot-deny-India.html

    This is happening while we squabble over corruption, SC,BCCI .The brits again cut down the influence using a brown sepoy shashank Manohar as ICC Chairman to undermine BCCI.Just like Brits used brown sepoys to fight against Indians and suppress them.When will our desi Idiot sepoys learn not to fall for such tricks?
