BCCI: Board of Control for Cricket in India

BCCI full form

BCCI stands for Board of Control for Cricket in India. It is the national governing body for cricket in India. Its main office is located in Mumbai, Maharashtra's Wankhede stadium. It is formed in December 1928 to replace Calcutta Cricket Board and is headquartered in Mumbai. It is associated with the International Cricket Council (ICC) and is the richest cricket board in the world. The board was established as a society in December 1928 and registered as such under the Tamil Nadu Societies Registration Act. Since BCCI is an independent organisation, it does not receive any funds or donations from India's Ministry of Sports. India's national cricket team, India's women's national cricket team, and India's national under-19 cricket team are the three international cricket teams that the BCCI sponsors to represent India abroad. The India A team is also managed by it. For these teams, the board plans and arranges games.

It controls all tournaments inside and outside India. It has the authority to select players, umpires and officials to participate in international events. The BCCI officials are elected by the representatives of state cricket associations. BCCI is headed by the president which is the highest designation in BCCI. Its current president ( as of Une 2022) is Sourav Ganguly. Ganguly was elected BCCI President in October 2019 and still has four months left in his three-year tenure. The logo of BCCI is derived from the British Indian flag during the colonial period.

The BCCI is currently valued at about Rs. 3,000 crores, and its agreement with the ICC, the international cricket governing body, only increases its wealth. According to the existing revenue-sharing arrangement, BCCI receives around 3-4% of the surplus that ICC makes. This might increase since it is anticipated to get 21-22% of the gross income during the following six to eight years. According to cricket sources, the BCCI may be anticipated to get $550-770 million during the eight-year term if the ICC makes anywhere between $2.5 and $3.5 billion.
