BCCI came under fire earlier today after it was announced that the Indian women's team had not collected their prize money from the ICC T20 World Cup 2020. The Women India team reached the finals of the T20 World Cup in March 2020 but lost to Australia.

The Women's squad was destined to earn a handsome sum of $500,000 from the International Cricket Council as the runner-up. However, even a year later, the players have not received their share of the earnings, and it has been discovered that the BCCI is keeping all of the funds.

Following widespread criticism on social media for their lack of concern for the women's team, the BCCI has released a clarification, claiming that they earned the prize money late last year and that all cricketers will receive their due by the end this week.

When asked about the massive delay in payments, the official sided with BCCI, stating that the processing of player payments in BCCI takes three to four months for all teams (across age groups). According to the official, the current coronavirus pandemic has also hampered the functioning of the Indian board, as the head office in Mumbai was closed for a significant period.

Furthermore, a former BCCI official explained that the players were only paid for a domestic tournament held in March and September before Covid-19. He went on to say that no one would have the Indian board responsible unless they know the exact date on which they received payment from the ICC.
