Team India’s success in the recent home season has taken them to the top of the test rankings and elevated Virat Kohli’s credibility as a test captain. And the plaudits don’t stop there as team India gets a HUGE surprise from the BCCI.
The Supreme court appointed Committee of Administrator’s decided that every member of the Indian squad should be payed Rs 50 lakh. But now they have decided to double the cash money.
“The BCCI SGM today passed unanimous resolution that players who were a part of Australia series win should get double the incentive. Hence they will now be paid Rs 1 crore instead of Rs 50 lakh,” a state unit functionary said after attending the meeting.
“The statutory rule is to pass any decision pertaining to finance through General body meeting. The amount of incentive decided by the COA was not passed by the General body. Also an impression was given that BCCI members are against incentive. The decision proves we are pro-players,” the official said.
This will be a great thing for the Indian team members as this will surely act as an incentive for them in further competitions. There has been a long discussion regarding the scale of pay that is offered to the players in the IPL which causes the country versus club debate.
But gestures like this will surely secure the players at least on the financial level which can only be a good thing.
