BCCI warns use of MPA right if revenue model not changed

New Delhi

BCCI today sent an 11-page letter to ICC chief executive Dave Richardson categorically rejecting the proposed revenue model and constitutional reforms. BCCI has reminded the world body that they have the option of exercising the rights mentioned under the Members’ Participation Agreement (MPA). While BCCI’s stand was always known, Committee of Administrators (CoA) member Vikram Limaye in his letter has pointed out that ICC should respect the MPA signed on October 12, 2014. It has been learnt that BCCI can take legal recourse if ICC violates MPA, which assures certain benefits to the member nations who compete in the ICC tournaments from 2015-2023.
