New delhi sources stated that the high level Committee of Administrators set up by Supreme Court of india has announced the contract and salaries of the cricketers from March 2019. Meanwhile the players are divided into various grades: A+, A, B and C and here is what each grade players get
Grade A: Rs 5 crore per year - Players: ms dhoni, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, R. Ashwin, ravindra jadeja, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Kuldeep Yadav, Rishabh Pant
Furthermore barring this fixed pay, the players also get money when they play a Test Match, ODI and Twenty20. Perhaps for a Test match, each player gets Rs 15 lakh, ODI Rs six lakh and for T-20 a player gets Rs three lakh. Hence irrespective of which grade a player belongs, if a player scores a century in an ODI or test match, he gets Rs five lakh as bonus. If a double century, the player gets Rs seven lakh.
Moreover for the india women cricket Team, the data is available for October 2017 to September 2019 and has no A+ category. Perhaps gender pay gap is evident which is much lesser to what the men's cricket team gets.
Grade A: Rs 50 lakh - Players: Mithali Raj, Jhulan Goswami, Harmanpreet Kaur, Smriti Mandhana
Grade B: Rs 30 lakh - Players: Poonam Yadav, Veda Krishnamurthy, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, ekta Bisht, Shikha Pandey, Deepti Sharma.
Grade C: Rs 10 lakh - Players: Mansi Joshi, Anuja Patil, Mona Meshram, Nuzhat Parveen, sushma Verma, Punam Raut, Jemimah Rodrigues, Pooja Vastrakar, Taniya Bhatia
