Bollywood Applaud’s BCCI’s Equal Pay Decision: In today’s era, women are working shoulder to shoulder with men in every field. In such a situation, women were said to be equal to men, but in the sports world their fees were less than men. But, now the BCCI has decided to increase the match fees of women cricket players, eliminating this disparity. Women cricket players will now get Rs 15 lakh in Tests, Rs 6 lakh in ODIs and Rs 3 lakh in T20 matches as match fees. In view of this, now Bollywood stars have welcomed this decision of BCCI.
