The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) expressed its dissatisfaction with the revenue share percentages announced by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for the USD 600 million pool. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) received the largest portion, earning a substantial USD 230 million, which accounts for 38.5 percent of the total ICC revenue. In contrast, the PCB received 5.75 percent, totaling USD 34.51 million for the 2024-27 cycle.
While the PCB’s share increased significantly compared to previous years, the board expressed its disagreement with the current revenue share system. In a statement, the PCB mentioned that it had consistently sought additional information to understand the rationale behind the allocation of weightages and the calculation of distributions.
The PCB believed that such a significant decision should not be rushed without having access to all relevant information, data, and formulas. The board proposed postponing the voting process for the model’s approval to the next ICC meeting. However, other members did not support the suggestion, leading the ICC to finalize the model.
Although the PCB disagreed with the revenue model, it acknowledged the fact that the board’s share had doubled compared to previous years. The majority of members found it impractical to defer the decision and voted in favor of passing the model, while the PCB recorded its dissent as a matter of principle.
The PCB noted that the increased revenue share would allow for greater investment in developing cricketing skills and would contribute to elevating Pakistan Cricket to new heights. Additionally, the PCB confirmed that the schedule for the hybrid model of the Asia Cup would be released later this week.
