    "If you don't accept the offer, we'll part ways" : Giles Clarke

    Former PCB Chairman, Najam Sethi spoke on a TV Channel earlier today.

    “I went to represent Pakistan in the ICC meeting in Dubai after receiving the letter from their President.”

    “That meeting was not on the agenda and was requested by the BCCI, ECB and ACB.”

    “We were told that it’s very confidential and the three boards will present agenda ideas.”

    “I contacted the WICB and they were also not aware of that.”

    “They thought it’s regarding revenue sharing and the control of the ICC.”

    “I tried again with other boards, but never got to know the real deal.”

    “They want to run the ICC and their affairs.”

    “As India, Australia and England generate the most revenue, they want more money than other boards.”

    “We went to the meeting and before the meeting, I found out that another meeting between the ICC, BCCI, ACB and ECB was already underway.”

    “After that meeting, we were also allowed to join, which gave me a clue that there was something fishy.”

    “In that meeting, ECB’s representative presented the new formula.”

    “Srinavasan came forward and then the ACB President had their turn and they showed us the new formula via some charts.”

    “We were told that if we are getting Rs.10 now, after the new formula, we will be getting more than 10.”

    “They said they would get the most money as they generate the maximum revenue.”

    “After they had stopped presenting, they asked us to question and believe you me, nobody spoke. We were speechless.”

    “I looked at the BCB and they had their head down, the NZCB were looking here and there and the WICB didn’t even send their President as they didn’t want to get humiliated. They sent their vice-President.”

    “SLCB was also spellbound and there were two representative from each board.”

    “COO Mr. Subhan Ahmed was also there with me. He was also quiet.”

    “I stepped up and asked Giles Clarke, who started the briefing, about it.”

    “I said to him that all this talk of yours reminds me of the United Nations.”

    “There are 5 vito powers in the UN and they run all global politics in their favour.”

    “I said this is reversal to the ICC and you want to have vito powers.”

    “He said to me that yes, you are right and we want the powers because we have the right.”

    “They will run the ICC, earn the most money and every cricket board will have to listen to them.”

    “I warned him that this is not a democratic structure and will not go well.”

    “He was speechless and Srinavasan started speaking that the BCCI generates the most revenue and if they stop playing, the ICC would be doomed.”

    “Star, SONY, Ten Sports etc. are Indian broadcasters and they have the highest bids.”

    “He said to me that the PCB will not get benefits from it.”

    “Giles Clarke said that if you guys don’t accept the offer, we will part ways.”

    “No other board was speaking there and just I was speaking. Other boards were asking me not to speak.”

    “They were planning this model secretly for the last 6 months.”

    “They didn’t include us as the BCCI were not on the same page as we were.”

    “The other boards were not invited to the secret meeting as it would have created a fuss.”

    “They gave us the deadline of a week to answer to this offer and I objected.”

    “We are not even getting international matches to host, so I had to object.”

    “They will offer the PCB, SLCB and BCB etc. a lot of money.”

    “They will continue cricket ties with us and use us as bait.”

    “What if their government doesn’t allow us to play with them and vice versa?”

    “They said if they host our series, they will earn 100% revenue and when they play away with us, they will still earn 70% revenue.”

    “There is very little resistance in Bangladesh and they are pro-India.”

    “They have sidelined Sri Lanka and want Bangladesh and Afghanistan to join us.”

    “We will have to consult all boards and their media to try and resist this formula.”

    “According to the current formula, in the next eight years all boards will get 117 Million dollars each.”

    “According to the new formula, India will be getting 500% more money, England 75%, Australia 15% more, while Pakistan, South Africa etc. will get 30% less.”

    “The affiliate and associate nations will get nothing at all.”

    “We will not be able to help other countries like China etc.”

    “If they think they can play cricket without South Africa, Pakistan and West Indies, they are mistaken.”

    “South Africa are No.1, Pakistan are rising and West Indies used to dominate cricket.”

    “They will only play for two years and after that, they will be finished.”

    Hahaha exactly. People need to read these things with a grain of salt. Sethi went from being incompetent, but when he says something people agree with, he is a great source of information. People cannot have it both ways.

    if sethis memory of what happened is accurate, this is horrific. it should be an automatic boycott of india, england and australia by the rest of the eight playing nations for this bizarre greed fuelled mutiny.

    Doesn't say it was Sethi? Could CSA? You don't have to be a political analyst to know about UN and veto powers. Everyone knows that..

    Najam sethi has no credibility.

    Tbh I will believe Sethi on this one overall. I really doubt he has made a lot of these points just for TV.

    If I remember correctly then Sethi was a media person. He may simply want to be in the lime light by having sensational headlines. He is not even in PCB right now( correct me if I am wrong).

    I remember him giving some idiotic comments earlier. I can imagine ECB/CA/BCCI taking the stance what he is saying but I am bit more careful with sensational headlines which relies on the memories of a media person.

    Add two and two

    Najam Sethi is lobbying to get back the PCB chairmanship. He needs people support and standing against BCCI and its stooges is the prefect way to get on people's good books. He has exactly done that. If he wasn't running after the chairmanship he would have been the first one to say we can't dare to stand in front of BCCI.

    Class 1 ma aik kahani suni the aj usko haqeqat hota dekh raha ho "aik shahks k pass sonna(gold) k anday dainay wali murghi hoti ha aik din wo lalch ma usa zibah kar daita ha aur usma sa kuch nai nikalta aur wo bad ma sar pakar k beth jata ha"

    This is what will happen to BCCI they will really feel pitty for this proposal if this proposal goes on they will get more money for 2-3 years but after that indians will lose intrest in watchng india playing again n again with aus n eng then from where they will generate the revnue ?

    My fear is that Bcci would create an alternate Pakistan 11 and play with them by offering huge amounts of money to the players. Just like icl did in the past.

    No one should doubt what sethi said happened in the meeting, it has been reported by Osman and jarod. But i have my doubts whether sethi said "UN veto" stuff in the meeting or not.

    Sethi should've leaked the report right after 9th jan meeting.

    I won't be surprised if these allegations were true. No smoke without fire and in this case we already know the big three want a big bite of the cake, whether it be money or power, and they would play down any opposition nonchalantly.

    The 21% BCCI revenue share is nothing wrong, it should be allowed
    but the Veto by the Rebel3 is all trash, and should be done away with it
    IMO The resolution will be passed with many corrections

    This is rubbish from ICC and the boards that want power.

    If the proposal goes ahead, I'll stop watching cricket and I think so would most fans of cricket. This is just not acceptable.

    You're not spreading awareness but demonstrating your ignorance. The simple point is this....."is Najam Sethi telling the truth about all that is said as he describes it in this meeting"

    There may or may not be truth in his interview as only the people present would know for sure. But logically speaking for the observers the point is simply, "could a meeting have taken place where a proposal by the big three was put to selective members of other boards"

    I think everybody except you can believe that such a meeting would logically have taken place and given the fact that this greedy and biased proposal is already on the table and its existence not in dispute it is quite likely that at some stage it would have been presented to other members to buy them into the deal.

    Najam is simply going a step further by explaining how it was received. We can choose to believe him or not but its a sad state of affairs as on absolutely every measure it seems to be in the worst interests of the weaker boards and seems simply as a measure to cement the power and wealth of the big 3 at the cost of others.

    Now why you choose to defend or even speak for the BCCI is beyond me.

    Najam Sethi might have exaggerated a bit, but he's not going to make up the whole thing.

    Well this puts to rest the theory by some Aussie-English fans that they are trying to actually save cricket by teaming up with BCCI so they can reduce its power. Funny though, only one ex-English cricketer has so far made a comment and that too after so many days. While the news is all over in India being criticized by many ex-cricketers.

    The other boards should just part ways and include the associates with them.

    Let Aus, Ind and Eng play among themselves and eventually, the paying public will get bored and stop watching the same old rubbish.

    Also, what right do they have of a 70% revenue during an away tour?

    The host should be getting 80%, with 20% going to the visitors, whether it be the "big 3" or any other team and if they want 100% as a host, then the others should also get 100% revenue during hosting.

    You couldn't be more wrong. Cricket needs to spread and for that to happen it needs to be brought to as many different countries as possible.

    Noone's saying make China a test playing nation tomorrow, but you need to show emerging countries that- "well if Ireland and Afghanistan are progressing so much in the last 10 years that they may have a FC setup soon, why can't we?"

    Cricket needed to explode years ago in China and Europe but this could sign the death warrant for smaller nations.

    This scenario actually makes me think English football and its money distribution is fair!

    that 70% stuff is that as Srininavasan said that if indian govt. allows team to india to play Pakistan at a nuetral venue or Pakistan can play their home series in India an idea floated by last time then BCCI will demand 70% of revenue and PCB will get 30% now this is real "Bad-maashi"

    It's good if they develop a FC setup. But they need to be kept a division below until they are really good to compete at the highest level.
    For Tests, Cricket does not need more than 8 teams ever ! The cycle of playing all nations already stretches years, which is too long.

    West Indies (see Tony Cozier's article on Cricinfo), New Zealand and Bangladesh have pretty much towed the line already, Sri Lanka won't object much either.

    Pakistan and South Africa are pretty much outnumbered already.

    Of course they do, at the end of the day you want a quality product, but what is the incentive for an up and coming nation to invest any money into cricket?

    There has to be some kind of end product but I suppose it's a vicious cycle of sorts. The big nations want money- so how do they do that? By keeping the game of a high quality so they can sell it to, for example China. But why would China buy in if it doesn't have a say?

    Well if I was part of the Chinese Cricket Board and there was no hope of progression, why bother at all?

    The ICC should be the ones that are going to China, Brazil, USA, Germany etc saying you invest money into cricket through teams and sponsorship and TV rights and in return, your teams will be playing at a higher standard against the likes of Nepal, UAE etc.

    I guess the point I'm trying to make is if you want the TV deals from across the globe (or if you aren't cynical, to make the game more popular) you need to give those counties a vested interest in cricket.

    Sethi only talks when he is not on seat. Some huge bongian by Sethi. seems like he was the only hero fighting the big evil lords, and look zaka just took it lyiing down.
    lets reinstate him to pcb chairman.

    Highly unlikely that SA will suffer because of this. They have the best Test team going around and BCCI,ECB and CA would want series against them. Pakistan are more likely to suffer.

    I think that's what they want . Imagine , if you are the top dog , why would u wanna risk losing that position .If the game gets some roots in China or USA (not easy) then the equation changes .

    Test cricket need not, and should not become popular outside the current big 10 countries. Unlike other sports, test cricket is a long affair played over five days. There is no point in dozens of nation of playing this format because most of us aren't going to follow these matches anyways. It is very difficult to organize competitive matches - just imagine if there were 25 nations and each team has to play most of them within specified periods, this won't work. It takes a very long time for a new test nation to emerge as a competitive team and it isn't simply worth it to spend ICC money on this.

    ODIs and T20s need to be popularized the world over, and I see no reason why this will not happen even if the new proposals are signed.

    I believe Najam must have said, he cannot make up all this on national TV.

    Good stuff from Najam but what matters is what Zaka Ashraf will do tomorrow, He is a sensible man, at least I think that way, I hope Zaka will do what is best for international cricket, our beloved game.

    Pakistan's vote is perhaps the most crucial vote tomorrow, I do not see anyone other than CSA and BCB voting against ... I'm absolutely sure that SLC and WICB will give in, ZC doesn't matter, they don't get anything anyways and will settle for whatever 1 or 2 money making series they get from the Big 3, it may all come down to the vote of PCB.
