According to international cricket reports, the International Cricket Council (ICC) is planning to distribute its revenue more evenly among member organisations, with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) receiving the largest share after the “Big Three” of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), and Cricket Australia (CA).
The suggested approach would give the BCCI the lion’s share of the ICC’s net surplus earnings for the next four-year commercial cycle, or about 40%.
ICC has different ratios of distribution for different countries
The BCCI is projected to earn approximately US$ 230 million per year between 2024 and 2027, or about 38.5% of the ICC’s total annual revenue of US$ 600 million.
Approximately 6.89% (US$ 41.33 million) is expected to go to the ECB, while 6.25% (US$ 37.53 million) would go to the CA. The remainder will be split among the other cricket boards, with the PCB getting the lion’s share.
With an expected sum of US$ 34.51 million (5.75%), the PCB is the only Full Member with projected earnings of more than US$ 30 million.
There are only eight surviving Full Members, and their projected earnings are below 5%. It is expected that a total of US$600 million will be generated, with US$532.84 million (88.81%) going to the 12 Full Members and US$67.16 million (11.19%) going to the Associate Members.
