Indian Women Cricket Match – Men’s cricket: Rs 7 crore, women’s: Rs 50 lakh. A BCCI study on the pay gap between Indian cricketers has revealed the annual salary of female cricketers in the country and has again drawn criticism for the huge pay gap between male and female cricketers.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) today announced the annual salaries of female cricketers in the country. After arranging the order similar to the men’s team, the athletes are divided into 3 categories: A, B and C.

News: BCCI announces annual contracts for #TeamIndia (Senior Women) players from October 2020 to September 2021.

After the information was published, the BCCI received a lot of criticism on social media where people pointed out the pay gap between male and female cricketers. However, this is not a new revelation, but the fact that Class A female players earn half the amount that male Class C players earn shows a stark contrast.

Female A level is <10% of male A level. Yes, women's cricket may not be as mainstream as men's cricket, but the huge gender pay gap is unacceptable. I don't think that there will be a big gap in the sports circles of other countries. @BCCI think — SWARAAJ (@swaraaj247) May 20, 2021

The annual contract of Indian men’s cricketers was announced last month by the BCCI, with a total of 28 players on the fee list for the period from October 2020 to September 2021. The maximum amount is Rs 7 crore, which is the salary that Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumra will earn during this period, not counting their match fees.

There are 4 categories, A+ category earning Rs 7 crore per year. Category A players get Rs 5 crore each and category B players get Rs 3 crore each. Category C cricketers get Rs 1 crore each.

This increase in the salary gap has happened over the years, while women cricketers have defended it. Smriti Mandhana said, “We have to understand that the income we get comes from men’s cricket. The day women’s cricket starts making money, I will be the first to say that we need the same. But now we can’t say that,” she said last year.

If this is the case, the debate continues, has the BCCI tried to increase revenue from women’s cricket and make it more competitive? The Indian women’s cricket team has been sitting at home for a year after playing the Women’s World Cup T20 where they reached the final.

When Covid led to disaster in the sport, BCCI organized IPL for men 60 matches. The men’s team then traveled to Australia, where they played 12 matches, including two warm-up games. They then played England at home, followed by the IPL, which was canceled due to an increase in COVID cases. While female athletes participated in 4 Women’s Challenge T20 matches in the IPL last year. Their first international since the World Cup final came a year later in March 2021 in a one-day international against South Africa in Lucknow. They qualified for the series against South Africa after only three practices.

Fewer number of women’s cricket games shows that BCCI is not in a mood to increase the number of women’s cricket games simply because women’s cricket is not attractive – TV ratings are low, attendance at stadiums is low, sponsorship income is less compared to men’s cricket. However, a little planning can solve this problem. Most of the women’s games are conducted simultaneously with the men’s cricket practice, which reduces its participation. Give enough airtime to women’s cricket, promote it and publicize it and that may end up solving this problem and therefore the pay gap may end up narrowing. The Indian women’s cricket team has been struggling with a slump, an unofficial South African line-up and injury problems, they have lost sight of what lies ahead, a place in the World Cup semi-finals.

Sometimes it is dangerous to applaud the practice of fighting in a lost cause because it hides many of its shortcomings. Show fighting is the nature of the game to win. And Harmanprit Kaur shows this struggle, this hunger and this final push. As the Indian women’s cricket team battled a slump, a South African team in poor form and injury concerns, they lost sight of what lay ahead of them: a place in the World Cup quarter-finals.

When the Proteas were on fire at Hagley Oval, as Mignon du Preez and Sune Luus tied the partnership, the required run rate hovered around seven runs, and all they needed was a run on every ball. With three off-spinners turning the ball into two right-handers, Mitali Raj appointed everyone deep on the leg side.

Since the early 1940s, India has been handing out single and double tickets with the same intensity that educational institutions hand out sweets in Independence Day celebrations. More than 30 singles and doubles were scored in this region during this period as the South African batsmen almost never felt the pressure on the scoreboard.

Captaincy is not easy. This never happened. There is always the fear of not doing enough. But in the situation Mitali found herself in, she had to decide whether she wanted protection behind the square from the side of the leg or in front. She can have reverse square leg or short mid-wicket in the circle. She needs both of these fielders on a tightrope, and this, unfortunately, plays into the hands of the running side.

But India’s movement cannot be reduced to this final phase. It is a competition where they have the stage of the championship fabric, but at other times they look mediocre as a unit.

Shefali Verma had two ducks to begin with, but Smriti Mandhana got out of hand with her sultry elegance. Despite winning the first two games, this momentum was at its peak against the hosts in the third game when India lost to New Zealand. Mandhana and Kaur took care of the West Indies with a ton that brought India up to a huge number in the first innings. The highest ranking fell again in the game, this time against England, who made a mistake in their second defeat in the tournament.

Defeat in Australia may haunt them the most. As both rookies failed, Yastika Bhatia and Raj had to be re-formed, which they did, but with a difficult amount of punch. In the end, Kaur’s blitzkrieg showed results, but it was never enough for the Australian team that always saves its best for the World Championship.

The only game in which three of India’s top five batsmen scored more than their batting hundred was against the West Indies. Also, this is the only time they posted more than 300. In other encounters, mostly Raj and everyone except Verma and Kaur batted slowly. After Jemima Rodriguez was dropped from the side, there was a serious vacuum in the team in terms of speed. Sorry, this space remains empty throughout this survey.

Captain Raj left the seat in front of the white cabbage. Then they got it wrong again and again in that game. It is clear that playing on the field is India’s weakest link in this World Cup. It came back to haunt them against South Africa in a game they couldn’t afford to be sloppy. A fumble and catch reduced their chances as the Proteas won the game in the last over.

For someone like Verma, the skill level is world class, she comes from a structure where playing on the field has taken a back seat since not long ago. Not only Verma, in India, hundreds of girls play cricket in the most remote areas, where they are taught only to bat and bowl. Modern cricket prioritizes on-field play more than any other skill set, and it’s time for grass-roots coaches and mentors to take it seriously too.
