Why IPL does not share its spoils?

Lalit Modi on why IPL does not split its riches with other cricketing boards.

"It's a domestic tournament. When county cricket (in England) was going well for hundreds of years, we never got the spoils."
Put this way there is a compelling logic behind IPL's parsimoniousness. Do you agree?

He sounds logical. But English county doesnt make this much within such a short time.

They wanted to take no risks. So they let India get away with everything.

Exactly, that is what I wanted to bring forth. The English never shared the wealth.

That is because of poor marketing skills.

Fair enough logic... the right to share the spills is not apt. If only the ICC recognized it a bit more than a domestic tournament, wow then there is a hot potato to catch. On the other end, am a bit skeptical on the reports of profits and figures highlighted in the recent concluded AGM. We all know many of the tickets were quietly given away free.

They do not need to sell tickets. They will get it through television revenue.
