The players of the women's team were given match fees of about 20 thousand rupees per day. It was equal to the players of the Under-19s of the Indian men's team. At the same time, the players of the men's women's team were given match fees of 60 thousand rupees per day. But now this gap is going to end. It is believed that when the Indian women's team plays the next series, it will be given match fees according to the new rules. The special thing is that the players with whom the BCCI is contracted also earn good money from the players, apart from this match fees were paid.
