BCCI Announces Monetary Rewards for Selectors
The Board of Control for Cricket in India have announced cash rewards for All-India Senior Selection Committee. Following the Indian Cricket Team’s historic Test series win in Australia, Team India also captured the ODI series 2-1, their first bilateral ODI series win in Australia.
It has been decided that the selection committee comprising five members will get a bonus of Rs 20 lakhs each.
Mr. Vinod Rai, Chairman, CoA, said, “ We are extremely proud of the way Team India have performed in Australia. We had announced cash rewards for cricketers and support staff earlier and are now rewarding selectors. The five men have played a crucial role in picking a balanced Indian squad and offering the team management enough options to work around different combinations. The boys chosen to represent the Indian team went about their task in a fearless manner and stood up in challenging situations.”
Ms. Diana Edulji, member CoA, said, “Each member who has played a role in India’s recent triumphs in Australia needs to be appreciated. With the ICC Cricket World Cup just about four months away, the three-match ODI series in Australia provided excellent preparation for the Indian team. The selectors have been focusing on a core group of cricketers that will make the cut at the showpiece event. I congratulate them for picking some fine young talents, who performed brilliantly on their maiden tour of Australia.
