How do the reforms impact BCCI monetarily?

How do the reforms impact BCCI monetarily?

The reforms effectively bring an end to the Big Three Model, adopted in 2014 under the ICC chairmanship of N Srinivasan.

Under the Big Three model, India, Australia, and England boards were to get a lion's share (20.3% each) of ICC revenues.

Once the changes are implemented, BCCI will get $290 million instead of the $570 million it had been getting until last year.
