The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is in process of passing a proposal related to the pension of its former players.
The proposal will change pension rules and benefit players who played less than 25 first-class matches.
The ICA has long been demanding pensions to former players before the cricket board. These demands include pension for former players who have played less than 25 first-class match games, besides pension for widows of former cricketers and women domestic cricketers.
The new proposal will be followed by a change in the rules on pensions. In this, there will be mention of pension for the widows of former players. At present, 25 first-class match players get pension benefits but it will gradually come down to 10.'
Meanwhile, BCCI on Monday announced that players will be paid a 50 percent additional match fee as compensation for the 2020-21 season affected by the Covid-19.
