'This is absolutely false,' BCCI official rubbishes claims of women cricketers not being paid

'Every player is paid in accordance with the terms of the contract,' the official said

While Richa Ghosh got a BCCI central contract for the first time and Shafali Verma got promoted from Grade C to B, there are reports the likes of Veda Krishnamurthy, Ekta Bisht, Anuja Patil and Dayalan Hemlatha, who missed out on the contract would not be paid for eight months of their employment.

However, a senior BCCI official has denied all such claims. "This is absolutely false. Every player is paid in accordance with the terms of the contract with the BCCI. The payments have been made for the contracted period. The claim made in the story essentially assumes that a contract existed for almost eight months for which they would not be paid. This is incorrect, and I can only conclude that this is on the back of incorrect advice," the official told ANI

"If a contract ended in September 2020 and the payments have been made in relation to that contract, it is wrong to imply otherwise," the official further explained.

This is not the first time that reports of Women crickets not being paid has come to light. On Monday (May 24), it was announced that the India Women cricketers will finally be paid the prize money for their participation in the T20 Women's World Cup, which concluded in March 2020 in Australia.
