How much match fee did you get till now?
Till now senior domestic cricketers used to get Rs 35,000 per match for playing in Ranji Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy. Apart from this, players were given Rs 17,500 for every match in the Syed Mustaq Ali Trophy. This money was available to those players, who would have got a chance to play the match. Reserve players were given half its fee. In October 2019, Sourav Ganguly announced the introduction of central contracts through state associations for domestic cricketers after becoming the president of the BCCI.
