Salaries of senior domestic and international Indian cricketers is likely to double up soon as the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) is likely to present the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) with a formula that would add Rs 200 crore to the existing salary structure, according to a report in The Times of India.

If the proposal is ratified by the BCCI’s general body, the present allocation of Rs. 180 crore will be upped to Rs. 380 crore. The proportion of the hike to be divided among the senior and junior teams is also being worked out by the CoA.

The news comes weeks after the presentation made by India captain Virat Kohli and chief coach Ravi Shastri, who demanded a hike in the players’ earnings.

“Senior cricketers are certainly going to get a 100% raise and even domestic players would get the same percentage increase,” TOI quoted a source. “Since, these cricketers are the reason for BCCI’s revenues, can’t the board afford another Rs 200 crore for their salaries?” a top BCCI official questioned.
