India’s men’s and women’s cricket teams to receive equal pay

India’s men’s and women’s cricket teams to receive equal pay

India's men and women cricket teams will be paid the same appearance fees to represent their country, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Secretary Jay Shah said yesterday. 

"We are implementing pay equity policy for our contracted BCCI women cricketers," Shaw wrote in a post on Twitter.

"The match fee for both men and women cricketers will be same as we move into a new era of gender equality in Indian cricket."

The agreement will see women's players at international level receive the same match fees as men across all formats - 1,500,000 rupees (£15,724) for tests, 600,000 rupees (£6,289) for one-day internationals and 300,000 (£3,145) for Twenty20 internationals. 

Under their current annual contracts, women cricketers in the highest bracket earn 5 million rupees, while Grade B players take home 3 million and Grade C, 1 million.

Men in the Grade A+ bracket are paid 70 million rupees, with those in Grades A, B and C taking home 50 million, 30 million and 10 million respectively, meaning the lowest graded male cricketers still earn twice as much as top-tier women cricketers.

In July, New Zealand Cricket and the country's players' association signed a five-year deal that will see male and female cricketers receive equal pay.
