The petitioners submitted that Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which is entitled to 21 percent of gross revenue of ICC for the cycle broadcast 2015-23, will be receiving at least Rs 1,000 crore less due to Manohar’s unilateral offer for a six percent cut in the revenue-sharing model.

They said they have filed the petition based on newspaper reports and details furnished by Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA), a member of BCCI.
When the matter came up before a bench comprising Chief Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice S Vaidyanathan, the Judges questioned whether the petition could be entertained as a PIL since it was a private agreement between two parties.

The bench then asked the counsel for the petitioners whether he would like to withdraw the petition or want the court to pass orders. After the counsel said he would get instruction from his client, the bench posted the mater to April 20.
According to the former CBI Director, the broadcast revenue to ICC was estimated to be in the range between USD 900-925 million for the Rights Cycle 2007-15 and sponsorship revenue was estimated between USD 600-650 Million for the same period.
