The Bangladesh Cricket Board has decided to increase the salary and match fees of the contracted players of the women’s team. BCB women's wing chairman Nadel Chowdhury has said that the board has agreed to increase the salary of the women’s players by 20 percent during the last board meeting that was held on June 15 according to a Cricbuzz report. 

''We have increased the salary of the women cricketers by 20 percent and they will receive their salary in the new pay scale from this month (July),'' said Shafiul.

"Earlier they (women cricketers) used to get 100 USD and 75 USD as match fees respectively for ODIs and T20Is,'' he added. 

The BCB was thinking of increasing the salaries of the women’s cricketers earlier. ''I agree the amount they what they receive as international match fees [100 USD] is very minimal in the present context and so we have proposed to increase that to USD 400,'' Nadel said earlier. 

As many 22 cricketers received the national contracts which have been divided into four categories. After the hike in the salaries, the players in A category will receive BDT 60000, B category will get BDT 48000, category C will get BDT 36000 and D category will receive BDT 25000 respectively.
