What matters is not the current valuation but the amount of revenue generated in the country. India provides 70% of the ICC's cricket revenue. It could be hard if the teams collectively bargain. However, in that case, the BCCI should lengthen the IPL to create a longer breakaway league and not care about the NOCs of those countries' boards. Pay large amounts to poach the players from those countries, Packer-style. Then, start a List-A league that lasts a few months more.

In the meantime, try to break off some country such as RSA or WI that is low on money by offering them a significant sum to play tests with India. Offer the Indian team to go to any country and play there for a large fee.

I think you can break the ICC cabal with smart, innovative thinking.

That sounds possible. The number of Boards which need a financial rescue is an important opportunity.
It would be very important to manage and execute this well in order to not lose the public interest and the revenue which comes with it. Maintaining a good image among the fans not only in India but all over the world is also important. But that could be done 1 country at a time by helping their Cricket board.
