    Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Shaharyar Khan is aiming to end the ‘Big Three’ domination which is comprised of India, Australia and England when they will meet in the Chief Executives Committee (CEC) meeting of world cricket governing body International Cricket Council (ICC) on April 24 in Dubai, to discussing at the length and the breadth.

    The 83-year-old PCB chairman Shaharyar has further somewhat expressed his dissatisfaction over the financial modelling system of the apex body of International cricket.

    “We are against this governance and financial distribution systems and we want it to end. We have already made our stance clear in the ICC on the ‘Big Three’ issue and we are not backing down at the coming meeting,” Shaharyar was quoted as saying by PTI.

    The report further suggested Shaharyar is clear on its stance alongside other officials to ask ICC for the equal distribution of earning from the tournaments to the teams which are participating in a bid to provide balance in its policy and governance.

    “Pakistan’s stance is clear and there should be equal distribution of revenues generated by the ICC as every member country participates in the tournament and makes it a success,” Shaharyar remarked.

    The octogenarian supremo Shaharyar, who has already tendered his resignation to the Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif, stated the efforts are being put into end lion’s shares of the ‘Big Three’ which are mostly being earned by three countries from the major cricketing tournaments.

    “The resignation has not been accepted as yet,” Shaharyar revealed as the PCB patron Sharif is yet to decide on it.

    The existing revenue model and governance system from ICC have also drawn criticism from the other countries which are solely taking part in the respective tournaments as India is earning a major chunk of it followed by Australia and England in terms of a percentage.

    In the recent past, Shaharyar has also stated Pakistan has suffered heavy losses after Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has failed to keep their bilateral commitments.
