Gone are the days when people used to say cricket is a gentleman's game, even women's are playing cricket sportingly and marvelously.
But, There is always a but in everything, there is something which might bother everyone too.
Wisden India recently posted the BCCI new contract value of male and female cricketers in India.
But after seeing this wide salary gap between male cricketers and female cricketers is really shocking.
So much Gender Inequality!! Like Seriously?

And one more unbelievable thing is, Even the lowest slab of male cricketers is much higher than the top slab of female cricketers.
The female cricketers do put great efforts, they also practice hard like every male cricketer does, then why there is so wide gap in their salaries?? Is this what we are setting an example on Gender Equality.
Its in General and for everyone on this planet:
We celebrate 'One Day' for the women's around the world but at the very next moment we behave like "Tu Kaun Mein Khamakhaa". It's 21 century people, open your heart and spread equality in every way possible.
Dear @BCCI please show your appreciation for women&cricket, bcci, female salary, virat kohli, mithali raj, gender equality9;s cricket by reducing this appalling pay gap. And please negotiate contracts for telecast of their matches. We have an excellent team that a lot of us fans regret not being able to watch perform regularly. pic.twitter.com/rlPMmuTtcU— Nikhil Mehra (@TweetinderKaul) March 7, 2018
Agreed, but are women really equal in your field? Just saw revised contracts of men and women, and there is a huge disparity b/w pay of men and women players. I really want you to take a step towards #EqualPay. @BCCI #WomensDay— Tishya Singh (@TishyaSingh) March 8, 2018
The highest paid Indian cricketer gets Rs 7 crore annually. For women cricketers, the highest is Rs 50 lakh. To put things in perspective, even Grade C men players get Rs 1 crore. @BCCI&cricket, bcci, female salary, virat kohli, mithali raj, gender equality9;s way of saying #HappyWomensDay— Anupam Bordoloi (@asomputra) March 8, 2018
