Reduce gender pay gap in cricket

Gender pay gap is a real problem in today's India. Our growing strength and status as new world power makes it a more important problem now than ever.

On Wednesday (March 7, a day before the international women's day), the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced new contracts for its players and a revised salary structure. The board introduced a new A+ category and included some of the ace players including skipper Virat Kohli and offered a new salary of whopping Rs 7 crore.

While the male players in Grade C category earn Rs 1 crore per annum, the female players – even after being in Grade A – are restricted to just Rs 50 lakhs.

Team India Senior Women retainership fee structure:

Grade A players to receive INR 50 lacs each
Grade B players to receive INR 30 lacs each
Grade C players to receive INR 10 lacs each

Team India Senior Men retainership fee structure:

Grade A+ players to receive INR 7 cr each
Grade A players to receive INR 5 cr each
Grade B players to receive INR 3 cr each
Grade C players to receive INR 1 cr each

The captain of indian women's team Mitali Raj is not even getting 10% of what Men's team captain Virat Kohli gets.

We request official to take a serious look into the matter and solve the problem. If we can't do anything in top level, then how can we think of the lowest level.
