The International Cricket Council (ICC) chairman N Srinivasan said that the associate nations will be benefitted by the restructuring of the International Cricket Council (ICC), on Sunday. Narayanaswami Srinivasan manifested his views on a range of issues which could draw spectators to grounds, in the near future.
Narayanaswami Srinivasan is an Indian industrialist and controversial former president of the BCCI, the governing body for cricket in India and currently the newly elected chairman of International Cricket Council (ICC). In 2014 the Supreme Court of India told Srinivasan to step down as BCCI president so that a fair investigation may be conducted, but after that he was recruited as the chairman of The International Cricket Council (ICC). He is also the managing director of India Cements Limited.
In a recent interview Srinivasan said that associate nations will get a significantly greater income now. All the cause related money will be go to them. The top associate will procure a lot. International Cricket Council (ICC) also have Test fund kept separately so that Test cricket is not ignored. In the new structure International Cricket Council want everyone to get equal share of profit. It will be distributed equally among associate and affiliate nations, added Srinivasan.
All three formats that is test, One Day International, and T20 format got success but they have not been equally successful in all corners of the world. These formats got success only in Australia, India and United Kingdom, but there is not only 3 countries in the world. ICC is trying to involve the other countries also. It will be good for cricket and from financial angle, good for those countries also. This is the challenge for ICC, he replied when he was asked about the scope of three formats and their survival. Srinivasan also focused on the consequences of this issue like for this restructuring of International Cricket Council, Future Tour Programme (FTP) will be changed. He also assured that after restructuring, under the new exemption, all nations will have a guaranteed Future Tour Programme (FTP). Every Full Member will get the opportunity to play against every Full Member on a eight-year cycle. Srinivasan also assured all the members that they will receive visitors so that they can sell their rights in advance. This is a signed agreement.
Srinivasan pointed towards India specifically saying that as far as India is concerned the preference will be on Test cricket, and ODI cricket, yet there will be space for T20s.
