Jason Holder, the all-rounder from West Indies, has claimed that the money deficit boards, such as the West Indies, only make money when the riches cricket boards, India (BCCI) and England (ECB) visit them.

He said that after being dropping to two-three from four-five matches in a series, the cash deficit board cannot afford below that.

Mentioning the big three, India, Australia, and England, the Caribbean said the only three countries are rich enough to host cricket and the poor boards cannot afford more international cricket if something to raise finances of the board will not happen soon.

“If something doesn’t happen soon we’ll see less international cricket being played by smaller countries because we simply can’t afford it,” Holder said as quoted by ESPN Cricinfo. “We’ve gone from having four, five-match series, down to two and three. And it’s very difficult to host any more than that for us, particularly the Caribbean,” he added.

“We only really make money from England, and I think India,” Holder said,
“We break even with Pakistan and Australia, and all the rest of the series we play are losses. But in these trying times only England, Australia, and India can probably host cricket. Outside of that, the smaller territories are struggling financially to get cricket on.”
However, recently, West Indies toured England to get featured in the three-match test series. After being dominant against the hosts in the first match, the side failed brutally in the second and third match and the series got to wind up by 2-1 on 28th July, Tuesday.
