    BCCI announces Test Cricket Incentive Scheme for senior Indian men’s team | Action Punjab

    ACTION PUNJAB NEWS Desk: Following the senior Indian men’s team’s smashing innings victory over England at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala on Saturday, BCCI secretary Jay Shah announced the launch of a Test Cricket Incentive Scheme.

    Taking to X, BCCI Secretary Jay Shah said, “I am pleased to announce the initiation of the ‘Test Cricket Incentive Scheme’ for Senior Men, a step aimed at providing financial growth and stability to our esteemed athletes. Commencing from the 2022-23 season, the ‘Test Cricket Incentive Scheme’ will serve as an additional reward structure on top of the existing match fee for Test matches, set at INR 15 lakhs.”

    India won the series 4-1 with an innings and 64-run thrashing of the visitors before Shah announced the scheme, which will provide financial support to Test team players.

    Test Cricket Incentive Scheme

    Assuming at least nine Test matches per season, players who play less than 50% or fewer than four matches will be ineligible for the scheme.

    Players who play five or six Tests (more than 50 percent) will receive an incentive of Rs 30 lakh per match if they are selected for the playing eleven, or Rs 15 lakh per match if they are not.

    Players who play more than seven matches (more than 75 percent) will receive an incentive of Rs 45 lakh per match if they are selected for the eleven-man squad, or Rs 22 lakh per match if they are not.

    This move demonstrates the board’s commitment to preserving and valuing the game’s oldest format. The board has recently urged players to play more Test cricket, whether at the international or domestic level, noting that many players have begun to prioritise the Indian Premier League (IPL) over red-ball cricket.
