New Zealand Board’s big decision, women cricketers will get equal money as men, 2 lakh will be given for ODIs

Christchurch. The New Zealand Cricket Board (NZC) has come up with a new rule. Now women cricketers will get match fees equal to men cricketers for international and domestic matches. It will be implemented from 1st August 2022. A new 5-year deal was agreed upon in the meeting of the New Zealand Cricket Board, the 6 main associations and the New Zealand Cricket Players Association. Now women and men players will get about 2 lakh rupees for playing ODI matches. At the same time, about 1 lakh 25 thousand rupees will be given for T20 International. At the same time, 86 thousand, 40 thousand and 28 thousand rupees will be available for different tournaments as match fees of domestic cricket.

Under the new agreement, male cricketers will get 5 lakhs as Test match fees. After the new agreement, the top female player of each association will get a maximum of Rs 9.5 lakh from domestic cricket. The number of female players who got the contract has also increased from 54 to 72. After the new deal, New Zealand captain Sophie Devine said that giving international and domestic women players the same amount of money as men is a big step. This will encourage young women players and girls.

Players will get maximum 2.5 crores

David White, chief executive of the New Zealand Cricket Board, said that I would like to thank and congratulate the players and the major federation for reaching such an important agreement.

Big gap still in India

Talking about Indian cricket, there is still a big difference in the fees of female and male cricketers. BCCI is the richest cricket board in the world. The player who gets the central contract in the men’s category gets a maximum of Rs 7 crore. Wherein in the female category it is Rs 50 lakh. That is, there is a difference of 14 times in it.
