ICC Announces Equal Prize Money For Men and Women!

Its a start!

A historic decision after all, ICC announced that the teams competing in ICC events, men and women will receive equal prize money. Chairman of the International Cricket Council said in a statement, “ This is a significant moment in the history of our sport and I am delighted that men’s and women’s cricketers competing at ICC global events will now be rewarded equally.”

In India, the inaugural Women’s IPL was held this year in March as a step towards diversity and inclusivity. Like their male counterparts, the women cricketers would receive 15 lakhs for a test match, 6 lakhs for an ODI match and 3 lakhs for a T20 match, as per the initiative. The promised amount is considerably large when compared to what women were getting earlier. Settlements like these would make the sport a more viable option for future cricketers.

This decision will encourage more girls and women to pursue the sport all over the world. Landmark decisions like these break the existing norm and provide equality to women across the globe.
