If India become weak, we become weak: BCB chief
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) chief Nazmul Hassan Papon said issues that India has regarding ICC’s proposed revenue model need to be sorted as a “weaker BCCI means weaker Bangladesh”. [নিউজটি বাংলায় পড়ুনঃ “ভারত দুর্বল হলে আমরাও দুর্বল হবো”]
“Everybody is trying to find a middle path to solve [the revenue structure problem] in a more amicable manner,” Hassan said after his meeting with the CoA, according to PTI. “We don’t want any member country to get hurt. Especially India as they have always supported us. If India becomes weak, we also become weak.”
However, Papon is in favourfavour of equitable distribution of ICC revenue. “I was a party to the decision when N Srinivasan was there [as ICC head] and the Big Three concept was mooted. Look, I believe we need a more equitable distribution but that certainly doesn’t mean you take away India’s share. No, no that’s not what we want.”
Papon further said that both BCCI and BCB have submitted their observations on the governance issue. While he didn’t divulge the details of the meeting today, the BCB supremo discussed their differences with the COA.
“The COA put forth their point on what their concerns on revenue model and governance structure are while we also told them why we are supporting a few issues and not all. We would meet again and want more countries to join us,” he concluded.
