Although the ten eligible Test nations initially shared ICC's revenue equally, the BCCI wanted more. The ICC's revenues are now worth over one billion US dollars in TV rights for upcoming world competitions. The main share of this comes from the sale of TV rights in India. The Woolf report, written by an eminent British judge and commissioned by the ICC under its then chief executive, South African Haroon Lorgat, attempted to make the ICC more transparent and accountable but was opposed by the BBCI who joined forces with its English and Australian counterparts. Collins and Kimber secured interviews with Giles Clarke, pompous chairman of the English Cricket Board, Lalit Modi, the former IPL commissioner pushed out by the BCCI and N. Srinivasan, the evasive president of the BCCI.
His company, Indian Cements, own Chennai Super Kings, one of the dominant IPL franchises. In 2014, the filmmakers travelled to Dubai where a new financial arrangement, giving India over a third of ICC revenues, was agreed and Srinivasan was elected as ICC Chair and head of its anti-corruption unit. This would have been a fitting place for Death of a Gentleman to conclude, but it continues for a further twenty minutes focusing on the 2013 Ashes series and the end of Cowan's career before an appeal to "change cricket" in the closing credits. It's a complex account, dominated by talking heads, and covering so many strands as to make it difficult to unpick. At stumps, Death of a Gentleman is probably one for diehard cricket fans only.
