BCCI to pay women cricketers on par with men

BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) secretary Jay Shah has announced on Thursday, that India’s women cricket players will receive the same fees for international matches as their male counterparts.

The BCCI has made this ground-breaking decision by providing Indian men and women who are contracted as cricketers with an equal pay scale. The news that the match fees will be the same for men and women players was tweeted by Secretary Jay Shah.

The BCCI contracted women cricketers will receive the same match fees as their male counterparts, Shah stated on Twitter, adding that, “Test (INR 15 lakh), ODI (INR 6 lakh), and T20I (INR 3 lakhs). My promise to our female cricket players was pay equity, and I am grateful to the Apex Council for its backing. Jai Hind.”

While Cricket Australia (CA) is also aiming to eliminate gender inequity, earlier this year New Zealand Cricket (NZC) reached an agreement with the country’s players’ association that allowed the women cricketers to earn the same as the male players.

Responding to his historic development, Captain of Indian women’s cricket team, Harmanpreet Kaur tweeted, “Truly a red letter day for Women’s Cricket in India with pay parity announced for women and men. Thank you BCCI and Jay Shah.”

The men’s and women’s professional games in India have never been integrated under a single master agreement. The identical match price in Indian cricket does not, of course, imply true pay parity because the core contract fees provided to men and women are drastically different. Male centrally contracted players currently receive Rs 7 crore, Rs 6 crore, and Rs 3 crore in the three categories, while female players receive Rs 50 lakh, Rs 30 lakh, and Rs 10 lakh respectively.

The latest set of player contracts for 2022, for both men and women, has not yet been released by the BCCI.
