Indian women’s cricket players to receive an equal match fee
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced that its female players will receive equivalent match fees. This is a significant step towards gender equality.
Before the announcement, women’s cricketers were paid INR 1 lakh for a limited-overs game and Rs 4 lakh for a Test. In addition, women were paid for one-day internationals and T20s.
Women’s cricket in India has made impressive strides in recent years. Several top players have become household names. So it’s no wonder that more and more girls are aspiring to join the ranks.
In recent months, the Indian women’s cricket team has won multiple prestigious awards. They won the Asia Cup for the seventh time in eight editions and reached the final of the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
As well as earning a place in the history books, the team has reached the finals of the upcoming Women’s T20 World Cup. These successes have helped the sport attract more fans in India.
One of the most significant advances in the sport was the creation of the Women’s Indian Premier League (WIPL) next year. Next year’s event will be the first of its kind worldwide and usher in a new era for women’s cricket in India.
India vs. Sri Lanka
India is set to take on Sri Lanka in the second ODI at Eden Garden, Kolkata, on Saturday. The game will be played at 02:00 PM. Having won the first ODI, India is eyeing another breakthrough.
There is no shortage of hype surrounding the match. While Kusal Mendis and Pathum Nissanka have given the visitors a blazing start, Mohammed Siraj has been a real force to be reckoned with. His quota of 10 overs was completed in just 21 overs.
In the field, Sri Lanka’s fast bowlers have been unable to live up to expectations. As a result, their quota of overs is a tad less than the Indians’.
While the opening batters put together a solid partnership, it was only by the skin of their teeth that the scoreboard showed a positive number. Even though the scoreboard displayed a ‘3’, the match was won by the visitors.
With Sri Lanka’s bowlers conceding extras, it was not a pretty sight. Finally, however, the bowlers did get the ball into the hands of the batting heroes.
The first powerplay was a close call. Sri Lanka’s batters could not add more runs in the first powerplay. So it was good that the Indians didn’t allow them to run away with the game.
ICC Asia Cup 2022
The 15th Asia Cup will be played in August and September in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Singapore, and Hong Kong will compete for the title of the Asia Cup 2022.
In the opening match on August 27, Sri Lanka will take on Afghanistan. India will play Pakistan on August 28. Meanwhile, the UAE will face Kuwait in a qualifier for the remaining slot in the tournament.
After the round-robin league stage, the qualifier winner will be able to join the main competition. Those teams will then play one match against each other in the group phase.
The Asian Cricket Council has released the final schedule for the 2022 Asia Cup. All matches will be played in the UAE, with the last on September 11. It will also serve as a dress rehearsal for the T20 World Cup that will be held in Australia in December.
In the Women’s Asia Cup 2022, India leads by 91-0 in 10 overs. Harmanpreet Kaur is the captain. Rajeshwari Gayakwad is the wicketkeeper. Jemimah Rodrigues scored a crucial cameo.
Previously, the tournament was supposed to be hosted by Sri Lanka. But political unrest in the country caused the game to be moved. So instead, it will be held in the UAE, with the final being played in Dubai.
