New Zealand appear poised to play a support role in the hosting of the 2015 Cricket World Cup.
New Zealand and Australia initially agreed to have even split of the games and be financially responsible for the games they host.
NZ Cricket CEO David White says they've pooled the finances together, and New Zealand will receive the smaller share.
"What New Zealand and Australia have done, is now coordinated it so it's one organising committee and pooled all the finance into one pie, and New Zealand will now get a third of that far bigger pie."
While there are reports New Zealand will also host less matches, David White says they haven't decided where matches will be played yet.
New Zealand Cricket's adamant the decision to accept a third of the profits will see them make more money from the tournament.
White says because it's a bigger money pool, it means ultimately they'll have bigger profits.
"From a financial perspective, it's a far, far better result for New Zealand cricket, and a very positive one. I think we're going to have a great tournament, and financially a very successful one."
