KUMBLE WARNED BCCI OF AUSTRALIA-LIKE SITUATION

Anil Kumble has warned the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) of an Australialike situation if the Indian board did not take measures in properly compensating the players. In the 19-page presentation that he gave to the BCCI office-bearers and Committee of Administrators (CoA) in Hyderabad on May 21, the former India coach pointed the ongoing pay dispute in Australia and cautioned the BCCI that such a such situation could be lurking near home as well. Mirror is in possession of the paper.

“This (the revenue distribution) has become a dispute between the Australian players and Cricket Australia now. While 25% of revenues was agreed upon, the definition of what counts for 25% seems to have created differences of opinion between their board and players. India should guard against such misunderstandings,” Kumble said pointing out disparities in the player share from the BCCI income. The Australian players have been involved in a protracted pay dispute with Cricket Australia.

He summarised the point stating that in 2015-16 an amount of Rs 88 crores was paid to all the Indian players. As per the system proposed by him, the payout should have been Rs. 170 crores.
