India is intent on a global takeover of cricket: Kiwi media

December 08, 2013 13:21 IST

The Kiwi media has said that a greedy India with regard to the menace of match-fixing is the real enemy of the sport of cricket and slumdog billionaires are ruining the show.

According to Stuff.co.nz, India is intent on a global takeover of cricket and a few days ago, although it has hardly been reported, Narayanaswami Srinivasan, the BCCI chief, told the International Cricket Council that it wanted a bigger share of its profits.

India argues that it generates 75 per cent of the ICC's profits and therefore the current arrangement, whereby 75 per cent of the total profits, is split equally between the full members (including New Zealand) is unfair, the report said.

N Srinivasan should be nowhere near the BCCI, let alone be influencing the ICC, which many people think just stands for Indian Cricket Council, in any case, the report added.
