India's share of ICC global revenues adjusted after initial vote

India will receive almost a quarter of the total cash handed out by cricket’s world governing body after challenging initial attempts to reduce their share.
The BCCI will receive $405m (£319m) over the cycle of 2016 to 2023 – three times more than England’s $139m (£110m), the second largest share.
The International Cricket Council’s board had voted 13-1 in favour of India being allocated $293m (£227m) in April.
That led to reports India were planning to boycott the Champions Trophy.
After the vote – on proposals for a new financial model intended to redistribute revenue more equally – the BCCI missed the deadline to name a squad for the tournament.
A team was later selected, with India eventually losing in the final to Pakistan, but a BCCI statement explaining the delay said its secretary Amitabh Choudhary would continue to negotiate with the ICC, adding that it was “keeping its legal options open”.
The changes to the ICC’s revenue distribution model, ratified by its full council on Thursday, will see South Africa, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh, New Zealand and West Indies receive $128m (£101m) each, while Zimbabwe will receive $94m (£74m).
Ireland and Afghanistan, who on Thursday were granted Test status, will share $240m (£189m) of funding with the ICC’s associate members. (BBC Sport)
