When will the BCCI think about giving money to the umpires and match officials who participated in the domestic tournament in the event of the 14th season of IPL. There are many of them, who have not received payment since March last year.
BCCI Trust 400 Umpires and Officials
For the second time in 6 months, BCCI is ready once again with IPL. He is organizing his 14th season of this T20 league. But before that, a big question also stands up. The question is that when will those 400 umpires, match officials, scorers and video analysts get their salaries? When will the payments be made to the domestic cricketers who were involved in making the current domestic season successful?
Some of these domestic cricketers are also those who have only participated in Ranji Trophy and they did not get the promise of compensation given to them by the Indian Cricket Board. India’s domestic cricket season started in January this year with the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. After this, Vijay Hazare Trophy and women’s ODI tournament was played.
What is the reason for the delay in getting the money?
The BCCI had asked the umpires and tournament officials to submit the bills, which were not more than 3 days old. One umpire said, “Usually we used to get paid within 15 days of the end of the tournament. However, 2 months have passed since the Mushtaq Ali Trophy was over. But we have not received any money yet. ” One reason for the delay in the money of umpires and officials is the absence of a general manager of cricket operations with the BCCI. Actually, the post of general manager of BCCI has been vacant since the resignation of Saba Karim last year. The delay in getting the money is most impacted by those officers and officials who are directly dependent only on the income from the BCCI. There are some of them, who have not received money since March last year.
Why is the committee formed in the AGM and the Cricketers Association silent?
The annual general meeting of the BCCI was held in December last year, in which it was agreed that a working group of officials would be formed which would decide on players, match officials and other things related to cricket. However, it has been more than 3 months since the AGM has ended, but there is no rumor on it yet. BCCI had earned Rs 4000 crore from the previous season of IPL. It was speculated that 50-70 percent would be of compensation, but there was no talk about it. Even those representing the Indian Cricketers Association in the BCCI’s Apex Council are silent on this.
