  • England’s centrally contracted male cricketers will donate £500,000 ($613,000) to the Board and charities while their women’s team counterparts have volunteered a three-month pay cut amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • The statement added the contribution was the “equivalent of all of the England centrally contracted players taking a 20 percent reduction in their monthly retainers for the next three months”.
  • Who earn considerably less than their male counterparts, announced on Friday they had volunteered a salary reduction for the next three months (April, May and June) in line with their coaches and support staff.
