West Indies hope for 100% rise

Dubai/Karachi: The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) is expecting at least 100 per cent increase in its revenue over the next eight years if the proposed system of ICC revenue sharing is voted in.

In Dubai, the ICC executive board on Tuesday, had proposed some “key principles” regarding a change in its structure and governance, which were unanimously supported by the ICC members.

[The Telegraph had reported on Tuesday that West Indies had joined the Big Three in supporting the proposals.]

The WICB felt many of the key principles could be beneficial to them. “After extensive discussions and careful consideration the West Indies Cricket Board joined with all other Full Members of the ICC in providing support for key principles relating to the future structure, governance and financial models of the ICC.

Meanwhile, the PCB said no decision has been taken with regard to supporting proposed changes . “The PCB clearly stated at the meeting that the guiding principles were subject to PCB’s governing board’s approval. These matters will be placed before the BOG and thereafter PCB will take its position at the next ICC meeting,” the release said. (Agencies)
