  1. Players are that kind of level wouldn't be qualified enough to play as overseas players in places such as South Africa or England. Does the BPL run at the same time as the Indian domestic season?
  2. Pick your CT2017 winner

    As an England supporter I'll have to put them top, feeling as confident as I have for a major tournament in years. After that I'd I was doing up a list it would go : England Australia India - South Africa New Zealand Pakistan Bangladesh - Sri Lanka
  3. There's no crowd segregation in cricket in England.
  4. GREAT NEWS- Nottinghamshire SIGNS UP PUJARA

    Wasn't the greatest of ways to get out today, edged to 3rd slip trying to block one outside off stump. Can get highlights on the ECB website if anyone's interested.
  5. "No, it's not the ICCs revenue, it's the ICCs revenue". Alright then.
  6. Sachin, Dravid want India to play Champions Trophy

    Pretty sure you've quoted the IPL revenue there and not the profit. Also do you have sources for the other values?
  7. England Cricket team new Kit

    And it's not as if they do that very often... .
  8. England Cricket team new Kit

    ODI is the navy blue one Heather Knight is wearing. T20 is the red with blue hoops that Morgan is wearing.
  9. England Cricket team new Kit

    Bit of an exaggeration, the test one hasn't changed since the start of 2014, the ODI one since the 2015 world cup and the t20 one since the 2014 wt20. Quite like the ODI one and it's good to see the traditional sweater back with the test kit. Not entirely sure over that t20 shirt though.
  10. Can India withdraw from the Champions trophy?

    The 2nd point was a reply in relation to India getting knocked out of a world cup early where the major blow would've been to the broadcaster, and not about leaving the ICC. There's still room to be dubious over the 70% figure, after all it was a value put out by the BCCI, ECB and CA when the size of that value would only help justify the notable increase in revenue the 3 got. Would be far more credible if it was directly from the ICC or even better an independent auditor given there's quite clearly a large conflict of interest in where the value came from.
  11. Can India withdraw from the Champions trophy?

    Pretty silly to use the revenue from a year to judge how financially beneficial a single tour is in that period, for starters Australia hosted in the world cup in the 2014/15 year which won't do much harm to the annual revenue! Despite that though that wasn't my point. What I said was the ECB and CA aren't financially reliant on Indian tours as other smaller boards perhaps may be (or tours from the big 3 members in general). Financially the ICC wouldn't have been majorly affected by Indias exit, like I said it would have been the (Indian) broadcaster who took the major brunt of it. Yes, the broadcasters after that realisation would have of course been very keen to keep India in at all costs in the future and it's in the ICCs interest to make the deal as likely to be as financially successful as possible to the broadcaster so they'll pay up. Not sure what that's got do with what I said though.
  12. Still nearly all over you with only only 1 non-English qualified in the XI, god damn Gary Ballance .
  13. Came across this article earlier which I think gives a pretty informative summary of the current state and expectations of Australian cricket broadcasting : https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2017/apr/28/nine-ten-foxtel-or-optus-australian-cricket-tv-rights-explained
  14. To be honest I'm intrigued by it, was on the fence about the proposal but and I'm interested to see how they go about organising it and the resulting end product. I'm not wishing failure on it personally, in-fact I wish it as much success as possible because if it does succeed (contrary to your expectations!) it can only be good financially for English cricket and in attracting a new young audience that is dwindling a bit. If it doesn't succeed then so be it. Got to admit I haven't see any Stokes v Root marketing myself though!
  15. The BBL rarely has the Australian test players playing.
  16. Can India withdraw from the Champions trophy?

    KP wasn't labelled a traitor for wanting to play in the IPL, he was labelled a traitor for wanting to play in the IPL over test cricket for England. The first tour of the summer has typically always been the weaker team so it's not been an issue. The kiwis had the first tour just a couple of summer's back.
  17. Can India withdraw from the Champions trophy?

    Not really true though is it. The start of the English international summer has always infringed of the latter end of the IPL and will continue to do so next year. The only difference this year is that the champions trophy is being held in England so it makes no sense playing a test series in May just before it.
  18. Can India withdraw from the Champions trophy?

    The point I was trying to make is that an India tour is financially of far less significance to the ECB and CA than it is to the other 7 boards.
  19. Can India withdraw from the Champions trophy?

    Given the BCCI term this as a 'Foreign board release fee' surely this only gets paid if a player is under contract to a board?
  20. Can India withdraw from the Champions trophy?

    The ICC were barely affected by the 2007 world cup, it was the Indian broadcaster in Star that were the ones that took the major hit. Tours from India make up a very small part of the ECB and CAs income, it's the smaller boards that are more reliant on tours from the big 3 to finance themselves.
  21. The discussion wasn't about their market, but whether the Indian government could block payments which they obviously can't do directly if the company isn't based in India.
  22. There will be 15 board members at the table requiring a different amount of votes to pass/reject a proposal and voting will also be anonymous reducing the BCCIs ability to pay off other boards to vote in their favour.
  23. So now you want a government to blackmail massive international companies based in other countries on behalf of what is essentially another private company? Think that's a bit more than dodgy.
  24. Even if they decided to go down what is quite a legally dodgy route (a government blocking payments from private companies to act in the interest of another private company), a quick look at the 11 major ICC sponsors for the 2016 T20 world cup and 2015 world cup and only 3 of them are actually headquartered in India. Reliance MRF Castrol India LG Pepsi Emirates MoneyGram Nissan Hyundai Oppo Reebok
  25. I think you've misunderstood, the boards don't pay anything to the ICC directly. The pool that the ICC money is distributed from is the ICC's income from sponsorships, media rights etc.
