The scrutiny on BCCI It spiked on Sunday when Telegraph Sport revealed that the Indian women’s team has yet to receive the prize money from last year’s T-20 World Cup. The Indian team had finished as runners-up in the tournament after suffering a loss to hosts Australia on a packed Melbourne cricket ground. According to WION, BCCI has confirmed that these fees will be settled later this week.
According Telegraph, the total amount received by the Indian team was around $ 500,000. All players owed an equal share of this prize money. Cricket Australia had already settled the odds as Australian players collectively raised $ 1.6 million. This report also highlighted the poor management of the women’s team by BCCI.
India’s cricket board has come under scrutiny after publishing the latest list of contracted players. BCCI shortened the roster to 19 players and there has been a huge disparity between men’s and women’s team salaries. There was also criticism about the difference between the men’s and women’s teams’ preparations for the upcoming England tour.
The Indian team did not play international cricket for over 12 months due to the pandemic, but other cricket tables managed to resume women’s cricket long before BCCI. The Indian cricket board hosted the ODI series and the T-20 series against South Africa in India during March 2021 to mark the return to international cricket.
BCCI You need to be more proactive if you want to fulfill the promise of promoting the Indian women’s team. Better facilities and salaries would be the first step in giving the team the right platform to reach greater heights in international cricket. The immediate focus of the Indian team will shift to a lengthy tour of England, as they will play test cricket after a seven-year hiatus. BCCI has also announced a test match against Australia later this year.
