Thirush Kamini explains why fans should not be compared to women’s central contracts with men’s contracts
Indian woman cricketer Thirush Kamini believes that the cricket world should not compare Indian women’s central contracts to men offered by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
After the board released details of the women’s central contracts for the coming year, fans started debating on social media whether female cricketers should get the same salary as their male counterparts. The reason behind this debate was the significant difference in salaries of top male and female cricketers.
The BCCI had given a contract of Rs 7 crore to the elite players of the men’s category. On the other hand, elite women cricketers earned a central contract of just Rs 50 lakh.
