BCCI will host dinner party for Shashank Manohar
BCCI will host dinner party for Shashank Manohar

Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) have reportedly invited ICC chairman Shashank Manohar for the upcoming final of Indian Premier League in Hyderabad on May 21.

The ICC and BCCI are in an ongoing rift after the newly proposed revenue model which saw a huge cut in the Indian board’s share while the elite  cricket body has risen earnings for almost all the other cricketing boards.

The invitation to Manohar could see BCCI officials negotiate and come to a common understanding of the issues that has been troubling both the bodies over the recent weeks.

“The invitation has gone to Manohar on Tuesday. This is a good opportunity for the board officials to sit across the table and sort out all the differences with ICC in terms of finance and governance models,” the Times of India quoted a BCCI official as saying.

BCCI will be keen to get a better share of revenue as their revenue was cut for 570 million USD under big three model to a mere 290 million USD in the newly proposed revenue model. The recent meeting at the end of April has created a lot of upset to BCCI as there were rumours that the Indian cricket team could boycott upcoming Champions Trophy.

But the board has announced the squad for the Champions Trophy earlier this week and are keen to use this opportunity to settle the differences with Shashank Manohar. The meeting with Manohar could help BCCI come to better terms with the international governing body and could get some of their demands settled as they provide nearly 80 percent of the revenue to ICC’s profit.
