BCCI’s Bold Move: Incentivizing Players For Test Cricket

The Board of Cricket Control in India is planning to make a bold move for the participation of the players in the longest format of the game.

As per the latest reports, BCCI is planning to increase the incentive for every player to increase participation in the test matches.

BCCI is currently planning to increase the test match fees for the players along with a hike in incentives to increase their participation in the red ball format.

Recently, most of the players in India have refrained from playing the longest format of the game in order to keep themselves fresh for the IPL and other T-20 matches, which has resulted in a hit of red ball format recently.

How BCCI secretary Jay Shah has already made it clear that players who are not currently playing international cricket need to play domestic cricket to make themselves eligible for India’s selection in the near future.

So now, to counter this, BCCI is planning to increase insensitivity to increase participation in the longest format of the game. The incentive will only be given if a player plays all the test matches in the calendar year.

This new model will be implemented just after the conclusion of the IPL. Currently, BCCI is paying 15 lakhs per test, 6 lakhs per Odi, and 3 lakhs for 20 matches.

IPL 2024 will start on March 22 with the Chennai Super Kings taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore.
