CHANGING FINANCES: In Sydney, Peter Lalor wrote the other key element of the proposal "is a move to change the financial distribution with the big three in line to receive a bigger share of funds generated by ICC events, which are now distributed equally." India will now receive about 20% of all revenue, England between 4-5% and Australia 2-3% "but nobody will receive less than they did in the last cycle" (THE AUSTRALIAN, 1/20). In Abu Dhabi, Osman Samiuddin wrote if gross revenues will be distributed in unequal shares, the remaining surplus "might be reduced." In particular, associates and affiliates could be hit hard: not only could that 25% be lower, the report also said that "just the top six associate nations receive half of that share and the vast members beyond them the paltry rest" (THE NATIONAL, 1/19).
NEW HOME FOR ICC: In London, Wilson reported in a separate piece Cardiff, Colombo, Sri Lanka and Singapore are "three contenders" to replace Dubai as the administrative base of the ICC. That is "one of the more unlikely and intriguing proposals" in the leaked working paper of the ICC's financial and commercial affairs committee (GUARDIAN, 1/19).
