New Delhi: Bollywood celebrities on Thursday took to their social media accounts and hailed BCCI’s choice of rise to pay for both men and ladies cricketers.                            

In an attempt to bridge pay parity between India’s male and female international cricketers, the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) reconstituted apex council has coordinated match-fees of international women’s cricketers with the same for their male counterparts. 

 As a result, according to a BCCI statement on Thursday, the women’s cricketers will be paid Rs. 15 lakh, Rs. 6 lakh and Rs. 3 lakh, respectively, for Test, ODI and T20Is, separately, they include in.
The revision is at least a three-fold climb, with the match-fees for Test matches having been climbed six-times than the existing Rs. 2.5 lakh per Test. 
 While newly-elected BCCI president Roger Binny alluded to the development as “a marquee choice on pay value“, secretary Jay Shah stated the move as “an vital step towards handling separation“. Treasurer Ashish Shelar felt the choice will be a “game-changer” for women’s cricket in India.

Taapsee Pannu tweeted, “A huge step towards break even with pay for equal work. Thank you BCCI for driving with example.”


The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday declared an equal match charge for both men’s and women’s cricketers of India. BCCI secretary Jay Shah took to his official Twitter handle to report the move.

“I’m satisfied to declare BCCI’s first step towards tackling discrimination. We are executing a pay-value policy for our contracted ladies’ cricketers. The coordinate charge for both Men and Women Cricketers will be the same as we move into a new period of gender equality in Indian Cricket,” he tweeted.

BCCI secretary Shah moreover highlighted the new fees for the contracted players and pushed that the Indian Women’s cricket team will earn the same match fees as their male counterparts. 

 “The @BCCIWomen cricketers will be paid the same match fee as their male partners. Test (INR 15 lakhs), ODI (INR 6 lakhs), T20I (INR 3 lakhs). Pay value was my commitment to our women cricketers and I thank the Apex Council for their bolster. Jai Hind,” he included in another tweet.
