Women's players yet to receive 2020 World Cup prize money from BCCI - Report

If the entire amount is distributed evenly among the 15 players, each would set to receive an amount of $33,000 each

The Indian Women's team impressed all and sundry with their stunning dominance in the 2020 T20 World Cup, only to be ending as the runners-up at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. However, according to reports on The Telegraph, the players have not been paid the prize money owed to them from the 2020 Women’s T20 World Cup. 

Indian players had collectively received $500,000 as prize money but the report suggested that the BCCI holds the entire pot with them. Tom Moffat, the CEO of Fica, the Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations, told Telegraph Sport that they have raised the issue with the ICC.

"Prize money is payable to players for their on-field performance in pinnacle events and the late non-payment of money owing to players is unacceptable," Mr Moffat told Telegraph Sport. "We encourage players in India to consider getting organised as part of a players’ association so they, and the game in India, can benefit from collective player representation in the same way that their fellow professionals around the world do."

If the entire amount is distributed evenly among the 15 players, each would set to receive an amount of $33,000 each - a huge amount for many players now going through without any match fees or allowances.
