BCCI's introduction of equal pay and its impact

In a historic decision, the Board of Control for Cricket in India or the BCCI, announced a pay equity policy saying that its centrally-contracted men and women players would get the same match fees. BCCI secretary Jay Shah took to Twitter to promote the significant development. This means the women players will now get Rs 15 lakh per Test match, Rs 6 lakh for a One-Day International or the ODI, and Rs 3 lakh for a T20 International. Till now, they were paid Rs 1 lakh for a white-ball match, and Rs 4 lakh for a Test. With this, India has become the second country in international cricket to implement equal pay. Earlier this year, New Zealand Cricket announced equal match fees for its women players.
