Cricket 24x7 - All the cricket

Breaking/Brief news

    August 11, 2004

    Without having a clue of what the total prize money on offer for the Videocon tri-series is going to be, the BCCI announced that the winning team would take home US$ 25,000. What is ridiculous is the fact that the Dutch cricket association (KNCB) will not get a share of the profits from this series. Instead they will only be reimbursed the expenses incurred in hosting the tournament. It means that they will only get the gate revenue. The problem is that the KNCB is now left at the mercy of the number of spectators who will turn up to watch these three teams battle it out. Primarily the spectators are going to be Indians and Pakistanis living in Europe. Why would they go and see this tournament if they could go and catch India and England play in the NatWest Challenge or catch India and Pakistan play in their group match in the ICC Champions Trophy?

    Following the announcement about the split of revenues from the Asia Cup, it is yet another confirmation of the fact that the bigger cricketing nations merely pay lip service to concepts like encouraging other nations to take up the game in a bigger, better way.
