Zee's Subhash Chandra -Kerry Packer-style Rebel Organization


Melbourne, Australia: Cricket Australia Chairman Wally Edwards!

Friday committed his organization to the ICC, dismissing a bid to create a rival global cricketing body.

As details emerged of alleged plans byIndia-based Essel Group, founded and owned by billionaire Subhash Chandra, is believed to be at the center of a new bid to create a new world cricket body in competition to the International Cricket Council.

According to reports, current Test captain Michael Clarke and opener David Warner could receive offers of $50 million in return for signing a 10-year contract.

As lofty as that figure appeared ($5 million per year), it was not significantly different to the current earnings of Australia’s top players, believed to be around $4 million per annum, Edwards said.
