International women cricketers will now get the same match fee as males, according to a pay parity policy established by the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India).
As part of its new pay equity policy, the BCCI will pay international women cricketers the same match fees as males, according to BCCI Secretary Jay Shah. Shahrukh Khan applauded this decision. In addition to owning multiple cricket teams, including the IPL side Kolkata Knight Riders, Shahrukh Khan is a well-known cricket supporter. In the tweet, the actor expressed the hope that the choice will encourage other boards to follow suit. What a nice front foot shot, Jay Shah tweeted on Thursday night, which Shah Rukh retweeted.
Taapsee Pannu and Anushka Sharma had previously appreciated this action. Both performers have appeared on screen as female cricket players. Recently, Taapsee appeared in the biography Shabaash Mithu starring Mithali Raj, a former Indian captain. Anushka, on the other hand, will appear in the biopic of Jhulan Goswami, Mithali’s colleague and pacer.
In terms of match fees and central contracts, Indian women cricketers make significantly less money than their male counterparts. The BCCI has now remedied the first, but the second’s imbalance persists. The annual salary for centrally contracted female cricketers ranges from 10 to 50 lakh rupees. In contrast, the guys make 1–7 crore rupees.
Numerous Bollywood stars, including Taapsee Pannu, Anushka Sharma, and Shah Rukh Khan, praised the choice on social media. A huge step towards equal pay for equal work, according to Taapsee, who used her Twitter account to make the statement. I’d like to thank the BCCI for setting an excellent example.
Describe how, in terms of match fees and central contracts, Indian women cricketers make far less money than their male counterparts. Women cricketers who are centrally contracted make between Rs 10 and Rs 50 lakh a year, compared to Rs 1 to Rs 7 crore for men.
Jay Shah, the BCCI secretary, tweeted twice about match fees. I am pleased to inform that BCCI has taken the first step toward addressing discrimination, he added in the tweet. For female cricket players, we are developing a salary fairness policy. As we go into a new era of gender equality in cricket, match fees will be the same for male and female cricketers.
Women cricket players will receive the same match costs as their male counterparts, he continued. For the Test match, Rs. 15 lakh, Rs. 6 lakh, and Rs. 3 lakh will be awarded. On social media, cricket fans appeared to be extremely pleased with this choice. King Khan from Bollywood has since joined as well.
