Hundreds of players from Bihar Under-16 to Senior, who took part in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), are facing financial crisis. The Bihar Cricket Association has not yet paid him the previous season’s match fees and TA / DA. The Bihar Cricket Association is accused of grabbing about Rs 11 crore of the players’ share.
These allegations have been made by IPL petitioner Aditya Verma in a letter to Jai Shah, the son of the country’s home minister Amit Shah and secretary of BCCI. He has demanded Jai Shah to intervene in this regard.
At the same time, Sanjay Kumar, General Secretary of Bihar Cricket Association has also justified the allegations of Aditya Verma. Sanjay Kumar said, “We have not been able to pay our senior, under 23, under 19 and under 16 cricketers and women cricketers last season so far. Last year we got Rs 10 crore 80 lakh from the committee of administrators, but most of the money was spent in paying the salaries of the officials. ‘
As per BCCI rules, a senior team player gets Rs 750, while under-23 and under 19 team players get TA / DA for Rs 500 per day. At the same time, in the case of under-16 players, this amount is Rs 350 per day.
Sanjay Kumar said, “If a senior player plays in all formats, the TA / DA of one season (season) is Rs 75000. We can understand that the players are under pressure. He has also not received match fees. They cannot even raise their voice about this. ‘
Aditya Verma spoke about mismanagement in Bihar cricket. He said, “I will request the Board Secretary to look into the situation of the cricketers of Bihar who have not received any money, while the BCCI had given Rs 11 crore for them (for the players)”.
