Anil Kumble wrote to the board asking them to share 26% of all types of revenues to players. Board is presently sharing only some types of revenue. This may increase income Indian Cricket players.
May be a good suggestion or demand. But the income sharing may be extended up to district level players. So that more number of players who contribute to development of the game as well as to creation of interest in the game across the length and breadth of the country.
In many other disciplines also such sharing may be thought of. This is a way of giving a share of the income generated by players. Also one can think of investing a part of that income in stadiums etc. as capital investment and then distributing a portion of the revenue to the stadium as income for investments. That BCCI, and state boards as well as players and some other investors can invest in sports stadiums in all the districts of the country and increase facilities for sports in the country.
