World Cup 2023: ICC Revenue Share: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has urged the ICC to reconsider its new revenue share model in their meeting with ICC. ICC chairman Greg Barclay and General Manager Geoff Allardice were recently in Karachi and PCB chief Najam Sethi has intimated about his apprehensions on the revenue model. As per the new model, BCCI will pocket the lion’s share at 38.5%, followed by England (6.89%), Australia (6.25%) and Pakistan (5.75%).

The PCB expects a greater share and has lashed out at the ICC for prioritising BCCI. PCB believes as Pakistan is ranked 2nd in ODI and many of its cricketers are in the Top 10 of ICC Rankings in white-ball formats, it deserves more than what’s on offer.

Furthermore, Sethi threatened that PCB would not accept the new revenue-sharing model unless its share was increased in the new five-year cycle. The PCB chief claimed that the revenue model was ‘unfair’ given both England and Australia get to play India in bilateral series. Furthermore, the boards benefit from the players taking part in the IPL.

PCB chief Najam Sethi has lashed out at the ICC Revenue share in his meeting with Greg Barclay, claiming it to be unfair on Pakistan.

“Sethi pointed out that it was unfair that Pakistan should get a lesser share of the ICC revenues in the new cycle compared to Australia and England. Sethi argued that Australia and England regularly get to play bilateral series with India and their players also take part in the Indian Premier League which means extra revenues for the two boards from the IPL management,” the source close to PCB told PTI.
