The BCCI is ready to hike the salary of Indian players by 100%, it means now the salary of the Indian players will be doubled in the upcoming season. The decision is taken by the panel after India captain Virat Kohli and chief coach Ravi Shastri demanded.
As we all know that the Indian coach Ravi Shastri earlier said,”it’s (what they are getting) nothing, (Rs) 2 crore is peanuts. How much is an Australian (cricketer) getting?”.
A top board official said,”Senior cricketers are certainly going to get a 100% raise and even domestic players would get the same percentage increase,” a source close to CoA told Times of India. “Since, these cricketers are the reason for BCCI’s revenues, can’t the board afford another Rs 200 crore for their salaries?”
The BCCI acting secretary CK Khanna said,”Everything is still under discussion. Nothing is finalised. There are chances of having another set of meetings over pay hike proposal. As of now, BCCI acting treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry is working on draft proposal. It will be discussed in BCCI Finance Committee and in SGM.”
