We are implementing pay equity policy for our contracted @BCCIWomen cricketers. The match fee for both Men and Women Cricketers will be the same as we move into a new era of gender equality in Cricket.

BCCI women cricketers will be paid Rs 15 lakhs in Test matches, Rs 6 lakhs in ODIs, Rs 3 lakhs in T20s.
