Claims of losses in BBL need independent investigation – Katich

Claims of losses in BBL need independent investigation - Katich

Simon Katich, the former Australian batsman, is demanding an independent investigation into claims that Big Bash League (BBL) has lost $33 million over the past five years.

Katich, a former member of the Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA), was responding to a report in News Corp which stated the BBL had endured financial losses in a contraction of its perception as a cash cow for Cricket Australia (CA). The stonewalling between the ACA and CA shows no signs of abating, as the expiry date of the current Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) of June 30 nears.




“One thing is for sure, it’s not drained by either the players or grassroots investments, which together account for less than 30 cents in the dollar,” he added.
