Cricket is wealthier the world over because of BCCI: Dean Jones

Former Australian batsman Dean Jones feels international cricket has become one of the world's most popular sports in recent years due to the influence of India, which he says "generates 80 per cent" of the revenues.

Jones said the Indian authorities are the ones who have invested heavily in cricket, and ultimately they are the ones who pay the invoices.


Dean Jones also said that India is very protective of its power and very shrewd when it comes to using it.

Jones reiterated that BCCI becoming the major powerbroker has helped the game.
