It is saving its so called baby The IPL form the fierce competition , started because of the Initiation of Indian Cricket leagues by Zee group. The main advantage with the BCCI is as most of the people think its cash rich kitty, but this is not true. ICL ( Indian Cricket League) has several times more powerful financial muscles then the BCCI.
But BCCI has the advantage of Infrastructure and support from International cricket fraternity, especially the ICC ( International Cricket Council).
