In comparison, IPL of 2018 earned a revenue of $ 1.5 billions. So this is the kind of revenue Indian market can earn in a sport in which Indians are interested.
Why are you comparing the IPL to a world cup? Noone is talking about the IPL. The BCCI can have all the IPL money. Noone outside of India wants a share of it. Compare World Cups to World Cups. The IPL is not broadcasted for free by your own Government. So it has real value.

Star's revenue - the Indian broadcaster, for the Cricket World Cup 2019 was targetted to be $143 million, they obviously paid less than that for it.

So until you want to bring some accurate comparisons, you're not contributing much with your argument.

Now BCCI gets $400 million from the ICC - https://www.livemint.com/Sports/JcvYsVF ... t-at-.html

So between the Champs Trophy and Wt20's to find the rest of that money, I really dont see the ICC really needing the BCCI to continue with global cricket. And it would save the ICC $400m....

The reason why this hasn't happened, is they sell out their votes for your billateral AWAY overseas tours that have no ICC involvement or money taking. This is where the Indian Broadcasters make money for NZ, SA, Eng, Aus, etc. But when it comes to the ICC funding itself - India isn't that valuable. At all. The ICC does not need India at its tournaments imo. And Billateral tours will change under the Test Championship anyway. England and Australia can easily keep international cricket alive financially by themselves. As they did before Star Sports became a big deal.

:toofunny:
ICC doesn’t needs India in ICC tournaments... And Indian public only see other bilateral series... (When other teams play bilateral series, ICC allows India companies to put banners in the venue for Indian public to buy stuff). Funniest shit I’ve read after long time... Basically India is a liability to ICC and will be better off without Indian market...

A country that brings more than 1 billion dollars to ICC and makes ICC one of the richest sport governing body in the world gets $400 millions dollars from this amount from ICC. You think ICC is doing a charity by offering $400 millions to BCCI ?

Pakistan (supposedly similar to India) is one sixth the size of India in area and population. Why it does not bring one sixth of the revenue to ICC that India brings to ICC ? Why Pakistan must be given $ 150 millions when it does not bring even $ 75 millions to the kitty of ICC ?

Same goes for Bangladesh. One seventh the population of India, but not even one twenteeth of revenue contribution to ICC.

The revenue that England and Australia get from ICC is similar to the amount that they receive from ICC. If ICC is prepared to do this for England and Australia, whyBCCI should not get similar treatment from ICC ? BCCI is only asking a more equitable share in accordance with its contribution. BCCI is not asking to be given what it brings to ICC kitty.

In the recent ICC ODI WC, huge number of Indian fans travelled from all over the World to watch India matches. Most of the India matches were sold out months ago...

Only few other matches played by top teams were sold out...

Yeah - but ticket sales are a paltry form of revenue. There's not much money in those. You have to hire the grounds, security, toilets, cleaners, etc.

Its all about tv sales. The tourism benefactor is the national economy and governments - which is why they should and all do bar India, give tax breaks to these events.

But you seem to want to focus on who has the most fans. Its India. That was never the issue. The issue is the point of these ICC events for global cricket funding. Not merely funding for BCCI and India.

I just realised that Anurag Thakur is junior minister (Minister of state) for Finance, no less. So getting ICC exemption in the tournament is very much within his competence. But I am happy that he is refusing to help ICC cause. Let ICC chief contact finance ministry himself where none other than Anurag Thakur will receive him and give him a kick in the backside. :fingers: :orcass:

Yes. I see young leader with bright future. Hope BCCI don’t corrupt him.
