There is some great news coming in for The Indian Women’s Team and their fans as BCCI may increase the cash reward for their heart- winning performances throughout the Women’s World Cup 2017. The Board Of Control Cricket India had earlier announced a cash reward of Rs 50 Lakh however a lot of Board Members from various state units acknowledge that the girls have made us proud and surely deserve more.
In addition to this the prize money for the ‘Behind The Scenes Heroes’– (The Support Staff) may also be increased from the original 25 Lakh as per plan.

” I would propose that the cash reward should be hiked to 60 Lakh for the players and 30 Lakh for the support staff. The girls have made us proud and they should be rewarded adequately . I think no one should have an objection if they are being paid more” a state unit representative from West Zone was quoted as saying by PTI.
There is even a greater chance of all this coming true as CK Khanna, the BCCI acting president has also come out in support of women’s cricket and has even stated that the women cricketers should have a hike in their match fee and he would raise this issue an an appropriate forum.
