Australia hikes pay for top women players

Sports, Cricket News : Cricket Australia has announced a new contracting system which will make national women’s team players among the best-paid female athletes in Australia.

Under the new squad ranking procedure, which replaces a three-tier payment system, the top player retainer will rise from $15,000 to $52,000 and the minimum from $5,000 to $25,000.

Payments to players on tour will increase from $100 to $250 per day, meaning that players could earn more than $20,000 this year on top of their retainers.

Announcing the changes Tuesday, chief executive James Sutherland says Cricket Australia recognized that national team members “devote a huge amount of time and energy into being the No.1 team in the world, and we feel that this is a landmark step in recognizing their commitment and contribution to cricket.” (AP)
