Opinion: What is Malaysia getting out of Tri series?
This is not a sarcastic or suggestive question…… its just a simple question…..
I know that Abu Dhabi Cricket Association was given a million dollars for the 2 ODIs between India and Pakistan this year…… Is Malaysia Cricket board expecting something like that? Australia and WI are going to be given $1million each for every game they play….. The ground which is hosting the ODIs is going to be given floodlights, all expenses paid by BCCI, so thats one thing…… I am not sure how they can install a floodlight system in a couple of weeks though…… gate money, tv rights etc all belong to India, so I am not sure what Malaysia Cricket Board is getting out of this? There is a gala dinner that the Malaysian cricket association is hosting and they are pricing those tickets for RM500 ( about $136) …. Malaysian national cricketers will be able to meet the test teams…… the event is likely to create some buzz as to cricket being a big money professional sport (though television can also do that…)
Also, look at this kind of money…… $1million to 1 team for playing 1 match…… the associates need to realize that if they are able to raise their standards to be able to beat India, they CAN have a windfall of money….. perhaps not this kind of money but decent money can be earned even if they can become strong enough to challenge the other test teams…..
