The BCCI has not yet paid the prize money to the Indian women’s team, runners-up in the last T20 World Cup. Shares of the $ 500,000 received from the World Cup last March are yet to be distributed. The BCCI has said it will disburse the money later this week following criticism.
The runners-up lost to Australia in the Indian final of the last World Cup. The prize money for runners-up was $ 500,000. A certain percentage of this money is claimed by the players. This money has not been disbursed by the BCCI for over a year.
“Indian women’s team members will get their share of the prize money this weekend. The players will get paid soon. We received the money late last year. This delayed not only the women’s team’s money but also the men’s team’s central contract money, international match fees, and men’s and women’s domestic match fees. This is because of the covid situation, ”the BCCI spokesperson was quoted as saying by national media.
