Monthly Pension for Retired International Women Cricketers

While the BCCI's decision to pay a honorarium to its selectors attracted the maximum attention, two laudable decisions taken by the BCCI slipped unnoticed.

  • The Indian Cricket board has decided to introduce a monthly pension scheme for retired international women cricketers.
  • The board decided to extend the monthly gratis scheme to the widows of Test umpires.(Previously, it was awarded only to widows of deceased Test cricketers.)

While this blogger lauds the BCCI, it requests the BCCI to consider extending it the more needy like the widows of Ranji Trophy/ First class players.
