Cricket Australia faces 450 million loss
Cricket Australia is facing a major financial crisis due to problems with the sale of TV rights. The problem is mainly due to the cancellation of the contract with Seven Network Cricket Australia this season. Cricket Australia faces 450 million loss as Channel Seven is going to cancel the contract.
In an interview with Australian media, James Warburton, head of the Seven Network, said that they are not supporting Cricket Australia next summer. He also described the Australian Cricket Board as a wreck, a misguided and incompetent body.
On the other hand, another TV rights partner Fox Sports is also in a tough position. The star cricketer in the Big Bash League is upset about the decline and is ready to challenge the ১২ 120 million he pays every year.
At the same time, the number of Australian stars in the Big Bash League (BBL) is declining due to the international series. As a result, স্ব 120 million a year in TV rights is facing a lot of challenges. Seven Network chief James Warburton said: ‘Only two of the top 10 run-getter in the BBL will play this season. Only one of the top 10 wicket-takers will be available.
‘Simply put it’s not acceptable and we’re not supporting it this season. Cricket Australia has an obligation to provide lower quality tournaments than before. We have paid big sums and promised the world. Broadcasters are obliged to give something of the best quality.
Australia will host India at home during the Big Bash League, which starts in December. On the other hand, there is a series against New Zealand in January. As a result, the best cricketers are unlikely to get the full time in the Big Bash, on the other hand, the schedule is conflicting.
“You can see our frustration with Cricket Australia,” Warburton said. With a sigh, they said they would gift the entire cricket schedule this summer. After that, it is reported that the top players of Australia are not in BBL. Let the best cricketers of the state play, let the fans be upset. It’s just chaos. ‘
‘What a stumbling block the Cricket Australia administration is in. How foolish is it to host the Big Bash and the International Series at the same time? Put the whole tournament under one pressure. It’s a kind of joke and a play on the emotions of the fans. ‘
