The BCCI was flanked in the attempt by Cricket Australia and the England and Wales Board – the so-called Big Three arguing that as the dominant financial entities in the international game, they should divide the proceeds between themselves.

The attempt only ended with change inside Indian cricket, when reformist administrator Shashank Manohar ousted a tainted predecessor.
