The least dominated all-rounder, Jason Holder from West Indies, has discussed the financial disturbance of the Cricket Board and revealed they only make money when the rich-cricket board’s countries visit them.

Revealing the Big Three countries, Australia, England, and India, are cash-rich boards hence, they can afford cricket whereas, other than that, the smaller territories will soon not be able to commence with hosting international cricket.

While dropping from four-five to two-three matches per series, if the financial disturbance would not be tackled, the smaller countries will be deprived of international cricket because they cannot afford it.

He believes other than the Big Three, all other countries are struggling to make more money.

“If something doesn’t happen soon we’ll see less international cricket being played by smaller countries because we simply can’t afford it,” Holder said as quoted by ESPN Cricinfo. “We’ve gone from having four, five-match series, down to two and three. And it’s very difficult to host any more than that for us, particularly the Caribbean,” he added.

“We only really make money from England, and I think India,” Holder said,
“We break even with Pakistan and Australia, and all the rest of the series we play are losses. But in these trying times only England, Australia, and India can probably host cricket. Outside of that, the smaller territories are struggling financially to get cricket on.”
