Cricket South Africa is set to get just 4.37% of the ICC’s $600-million annual earnings in the proposed model for the 2024-27 cycle.
That equates to $26.24-million (R491.62-million).
ESPNcricinfo reports that the ICC’s next revenue-distribution model shows that the so-called ‘Big Three’ – India, England and Australia – is set to become the Big One.
India will receive 38.5% of the money ($231-million), with England and Australia getting 6.89% ($41.33-million) and 6.25% ($37.53-million) respectively. Pakistan is the only other full member expected to earn more than $30-million.
The 194 associate nations will get just 11.19% of the projected pool, which is half of what they got until 2015.
The overall annual figure of $600-million is based on the estimated earnings of the ICC – over $3.2-billion – over the next four years from the sale of its media rights alone.
The vast majority of that amount comes from the Indian market, where Disney Star paid just over $3-billion for the rights.
