Cricket Purse Strings

It's no secret that the BCCI, ACA and ECB recently forged a deal which sees them retain the lion's share of the billions of dollars of cricket revenue. On the surface the argument that they deserve the spoils as they generate most of the income seems sensible. However, one does wonder what impact this has on the future of cricket globally.

Surely a drop in revenue is something the minnow nations can ill-afford and it's highly unfair that they are not entitled to a larger piece of the pie for all the entertainment they provide. I for one enjoyed the first round of the 2016 T20 World Cup and can see some amazing cricketers involved in minnow nations.
