Push for red-ball cricket: BCCI to hike Test match fee

The BCCI currently pays INR 15 lakh for a Test, INR 6 lakh for an ODI, and INR 3 lakh for a T20I.

The Board of Control For Cricket in India (BCCI) intends to increase the payments for Test matches as a result of players’ increasing preference for playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) over the longest format of the game, according to a report.

The fee structure has been revised by the cricket board in response to Ishan Kishan’s withdrawal from domestic cricket. The Indian wicketkeeper batter has been working with the Pandya brothers in Barodra, Gujarat, ahead of the IPL, which is scheduled to begin later this month, despite the management’s requests for him to play domestic cricket.

According to a source, BCCI is currently deciding how much more money will be given to a player who participates in every Test series for the whole of the season.

For instance, in addition to the yearly retainer contract, an individual should receive additional benefits if they participate in every Test series over a given year. This is to guarantee that more players show up for red-ball cricket. According to a source, this would be an additional perk of playing Test cricket.

The BCCI currently pays INR 15 lakh for a Test, INR 6 lakh for an ODI, and INR 3 lakh for a T20I.

According to a report, if the new salary structure is approved, it will be implemented after the current IPL season.

However, Rohit Sharma-led team India was engaged in a five-match Test series against England, which the home team had already won yesterday. Prominent players such as Mohammed Shami and Virat Kohli have missed this series due to injury and personal reasons, respectively.

Meanwhile, the team will play in the Indian Premier League (IPL) following this Test series, and after the end of the cash-rich league, Team India will head to the United States for the upcoming T20 World Cup.

The captain of the Mumbai Indians, Hardik Pandya, is leading the Reliance 1 team in the DY Patil T20 tournament, marking his eagerly anticipated comeback to cricket. Since sustaining an ankle injury during India’s ICC Cricket World Cup group stage match against Bangladesh in October of last year, Pandya has not participated in any international cricket matches for the team India.

Pandya was not present for the home series of five T20 internationals against Australia, nor for the three ODI and three T20I matches that made up the journey to South Africa. In Pandya’s absence, top-ranked T20I batsman Suryakumar Yadav donned the role of captain.

Hardik Pandya returned to the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru last week, where he participated in match simulations as part of a fitness test. He started training for the DY Patil T20 Cup in preparation of the IPL 2024 after passing the fitness tests.

Ahead of the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season, Pandya was moved from the Gujarat Titans (GT) to the Mumbai Indians (MI) in November last year. Former MI captain Rohit Sharma, who has won five IPL trophies for the team, has been replaced by Hardik Pandya in the 2024 season of the famous league.

With players like Tilak Verma, Nehal Wadhera, Akash Madhwal, and Piyush Chawla, Pandya is in charge of a superstar-studded lineup. With Pandya leading the team, these players will play for MI.

However, Rohit Sharma will be captaining the team in the upcoming T20 World Cup, which is scheduled to take place in the USA and the West Indies in June, with the intention of putting an end to India’s ICC trophy drought.

Meanwhile, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah earlier announced that Rohit Sharma will lead the Men in Blue in the ICC T20 World Cup. He also voiced hope that Team India will emerge victorious in the T20 cricket tournament and break their ten-year trophy drought under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy.
