BCCI’s Landmark Move: Equal match fee for men, women cricketers

October 27, 2022

In a landmark move, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) today announced that the match fee for both men and women cricketers (contracted) will be the same.

The decision to bring women cricketers on par with men, in terms of match fee, is in many ways a landmark decision.

BCCI Secretary Jay Shah confirmed that the contracted senior women’s cricketers will earn the same match fee as their male counterparts.

Jay Shah tweeted “I’m pleased to announce @BCCI’s first step towards tackling discrimination. We are implementing pay equity policy for our contracted @BCCIWomen cricketers. The match fee for both Men and Women Cricketers will be same as we move into a new era of gender equality in Cricket. The @BCCIWomen cricketers will be paid the same match fee as their male counterparts. Test (Rs. 15 lakhs), ODI (Rs. 6 lakhs), T20I (Rs. 3 lakhs). Pay equity was my commitment to our women cricketers and I thank the Apex Council for their support. Jai Hind.”

The decision comes just days after it was decided in the BCCI AGM that the first season of the women’s IPL will be played in 2023.
