BCCI announces INR 125 crore($15mn) prize money for Team India

I think this money will be distributed among coaches and support staff too.
 
Good Job once again by BCCI, these gestures show the players that they are appreciated.
 
Don't they get paid a lot already (IPL, sponsorships etc.)? That's too much to be given away over a sport (that too in a third world country).

Better to spend this on infrastructures or to reduce poverty further.
 
Look at the pleasure they have provided to their supporters - they deserve it

India spends a lot on Infrastructure already unless you mean sports infrastructure then yes, nothing to do with poverty here but state of other sports and stadiums in tier-3 cities.

Are you saying there is no poverty in India? Is everyone rich in India?
 
There is poverty even in Europe and USA..it’s not the job of sports associations to eradicate that.

They should focus on creating sports scholarships and financially strong sport associations at ground level.

What has BCCI’s finance got to do with poverty?
Exactly. Poverty is horrible in USA. If you go to DC, you will see homeless encampments, people living in tents just few blocks away from the White House. If you go to San Franciso, some of the areas are only marginally better than Dharavi. It is unbelievable to see such wretched poverty in USA.

Now coming back to the point, it is not NFL’s responsibility to calibrate their prize money or plan Super Bowl any differently because there is so much poverty in US.
 
Ya think 15m is going to eradicate poverty.

Ab kya bolun main
Bolo aur Puchoo bhai why does BD play cricket, when that money could be better spent on poverty eradication. Why does BD elect chokers like Shakib and Mashrafe as MPs, when they couldnt win zilch, why hope them to help pull BD out of poverty?

pucho bhai par jawab naahi milega.

This is the most idiotic thing I have heard in a while. Why would BCCI work on eradicating poverty? Are you that naive or a troll? How is a sporting association going to eradicate poverty in their country. Is there even their mandate?
 
Most of these lads are already multi millionaires in £s.

It would be a nice gesture if they donated it to charity.
 
That’s too much of money they already get paid the most.
Doesn’t matter, it’s only a token of appreciation. The whole cricketing world & its grandmother (read BCCI, ICC, PCB & all cricketing boards/players) makes money of these players - think of the amount of stress they bear every day. They deserve all the appreciation they get.

Bangladesh is playing cricket for more than 25 year and they haven't won any trophy not even Asia Cup.

So they should Stop playing cricket and used that money for betterment of normal citizens.( By using your logic)

Why do you have to bring Bangladesh here? Is the topic Bangladesh?

Bangladeshi players don't earn anywhere near Indian players. Indian players are very rich. They shouldn't receive it in my opinion as this money can be directed toward important things (how about helping poor Indian cricketers?).

You first bring indian poverty in this thread. What has the poverty do with this prize money which players are earned by Winning the World Cup.
 
To my fellow Indian brethren herein PP, it's futile to reason with that lowly troll from BD. He will somehow find a reason or way to sneak in his usual snide remarks/drivel against India.

Let's continue to savour our trophy win👍😊

This is not the prize money. This is BCCI's bonus. Read everything before you get very excited.
 
Another reason why Indian players are comfortable retiring early unlike Pakistani players who want to milk as much as possible till they reach 40
 
Does Cricket Australia, Australian govt and the Australian commercial sponsors, state regional teams announce rewards, bonuses for the Australian players whenever they win a WC or Ashes series or do they get a pat on the back, one party night, victory lap, tour and get told, you guys did your job and whatever you were paid to do and now focus on your next assignment?

I'm sure there are performance bonuses negotiated in advance by the players association but these spontaneous announcements are more of a subcontinent thing

Indian players including ex players domestic and international receive pensions and healthcare.

Why shouldn't they receive it? BCCI s job is to run cricket and hence they are paying players.

This isn't taxpayers money.

Basically posters like him feel the burn that Indian players get this amount of money.

On most such threads you will see them commenting about poverty in India.

Its nothing but plain jealousy.

Absolutely. Anyone can see it. And that's what makes it even more sweeter for us Indian fans.
 
India and Pakistan have a rivalry.

Why are Bangladeshis salty?

How is it being salty? I simply pointed out that amount of bonus is unnecessary considering the money they earn from IPL, sponsorships etc.

It is an overkill.

Again, just my opinion.

That's an illiterate way of thinking. Even in USA there is poverty. Just look at the number of homeless. It's in millions. But loads of money is spent on sports and other fields. Rewards encourage people to perform. That too an achievement of this scale deserves rewards.

The money being spent on infrastructure in India is in billions per year and that's more than the IMF bailouts thqt many asian countries receive per year. Sports is a great industry that provides tons of jobs, generates loads of cash, unites people, builds discipline and comraderie. The people who play the sports are extremely critical for this ecosystem and they need to be rewarded based on the achievements.

Sponsorship has nothing to do with BCCI.

IPL salary is for playing the IPL and paid by franchisees.

This is for winning the T20WC.

By your logic, if I have other sources of income like rental properties or generational wealth my employer should not pay me performance bonus?

America is not the benchmark. They don't know how to manage their money and take care of themselves. It is why they have trillions of Dollars of debt and millions of homeless.

These Indian players are already rewarded with IPL contracts and sponsorships. Also, they got a big prize money from ICC for winning the trophy.

The world isn't a Marxist hellhole. A nation needs to build parallel streams of revenue. That revenue can then be utilized to provide livelihoods and build a culture. That's what sport does. India has aced the revenue generation in cricket and took full advantage of its population size.

Americans know exactly how to.manage the money. That's precisely why they still.exist as a prosperous country with 34 trillion in debt. They laid the rules of finance. This austerity crap is for poor countries and they suck them into it by doling out IMF loans. The only way that works is to spend money to make money. Look at the Chinese debt. It's relatively worse with an inflated GDP That was built on unnecessary infra spending. Most real.estate companies are already bankrupt. India is relatively disciplined and invests where necessary and sports is a very good place to invest. Moreover BCCI is a private body that gets revenues based on the interest of fans. Fans like the team because the team has been consistent for a decade and half. It's important to reward the players so the golden goose keeps laying eggs.

By this logic, Dismantle the Pakistani and Bangladeshi team to solve poverty problems in Pakistan and Bangladesh. They get the most money for Zero performances.
Indian team atleast wins a lot of games and is source of happiness.

Babar and Shakib are spoilt man childs making truck loads of money without any accountability.
 
Are you saying there is no poverty in India? Is everyone rich in India?
At least, Extreme poverty is eliminated to a larger extent. Yes, there is poverty, but much better than our neighbouring countries. Both sate and central Governments are supporting to the BPL segment with free ration, pension, housing etc. Still there is lot of work to be done but the budget is allotted separately. Government should cater their services and budget to all segments simultaneously, not only to BPL or sports. Education, Medical,, Science, Technology... there are many segments and government cannot ignore all the segments and focus on only one (like BPL alone).
 
Apart from this Indian players will get contract money, prize money from corporates, new contracts, new advertisement/, etc. At present, Indian cricketers are felt like Adani, Ambani of cricketing world….

What a transformation happened for Indian cricketers lives in last 30-35 years. In 1989, when Tendulkar made his debut in international cricket, Sungress Mafatlal offered hi job @15k per month. At that time cricketers were not professional. We thought Tendulkar made his life. But when he retired from cricket, his net worth was INR 1200 crores+
 
Look at this 125 cores prize money this way.

This will act as an incentive for budding Indian cricketers as in if they perform well in whatever form of the game, they'll graduate to senior Indian team and then they may also be amongst riches just like current Indian team is.

This is also indirectly, a spending on budding Indian cricketers.

Don't forget, Indian support staff will also be getting their share which is great. They've worked really hard over past few years.
 
Its such a childish way of looking this prize money as a way to remove poverty.

What if these cricketers also spend a lot on charity without anyone of us knowing? If yes, this extra incentive will probably increase the outgo of charity amount too.
 
As long as BCCI is paying money out of its own pocket - there should be no issues. Its just like corporate bonuses

If it was taxpayer money - then I wud be upset. While other sports like wrestling, boxing, athletics deserve govt support, BCCI earns enough to pay its own cricketers

90s changed Indian cricket completely. Before that Indian cricketers had to rely on govt jobs to feed their families

In 1983 when India won the WC, BCCI had no money to reward the players. So the govt requested Lata Mangeshkar to do a concert to raise funds for the team. Lata Mangeshkar did it for free & in return got a lifetime free pass for all India matches

One reason no Indian cricketer played in Kerry Packer's WSC is bcoz most Indian cricketers had govt jobs & their employers refused to sanction leave for playing in WSC as it was not officially recognized by the BCCI / ICC
 
Nobody has the right to become rich by that logic since poverty is everywhere and a big factor..everyone must live paycheck to paycheck and distribute additional wealth to the Poor People.
 
Had our players get that much or even more they will still look for low franchise leagues to make more. When people honestly work hard to achieve their goal, money comes to them but when people are after money like our players and their hunger for money will never end. All they do to go after money rather than performances.

True!!! But many poor people are lazy as well. If they hard worker yes.
 
If our idiot board president at BCB says players will get bonus after our awful performance 125 cr seems small from BCCI
 
Why many posters wants cricketers to donate money to poor? After all it’s their hard earned money. Indian cricketers have huge money, they are living lavish lives, they are spending their monies on Houses, apartments, cars, bikes, shopping, hotelling, travels. Their huge spending is good for Indian economy, it will create more employment/ more production in industries. This is how economy works.

Many Indian cricketers are involved in charity/donations drives.

Cricket Australia has revenue sharing model with their players and contract terms do have incentives earmarked for achieving milestones in tournaments. Indian cricketers do not have a revenue sharing model with BCCI. Hence different treatments to tournament wins.

Why are you so unhappy. An Indian organization (bcci) is rewarding Indian players with its own money. We are happy for the players and think it is right for them to be rewarded. They have made all of us proud and happy. You can’t value happiness. Govt is doing what it can to alleviate poverty that is their job. BCCI has no business in poverty alleviation. This can motivate many families to send their kids to sports. This is the same talk I heard from our neighbors about chandrayan’s success. Man did it make them cry about our poor people for days 😉.

off topic , Indian cricketers are well off & no , not interested if they do charity or not ! Dhoni & Kohli are neck-2-neck with NW of $ 150 M & speaking of recent players , Pandu is worth around $ 15 M & Siraj with just 4 years of Int cricket is $ 7 M !
 
How is it the same prize?
Mohsin pledged 100000 $ for each player, while this amount is to be distributed among all staff members, coaches selector etc. And if it is distributed among 100 individuals then it comes down to 150 K $.
 
I hope the coaching staff get their due share. The cricketers will make a lot of money nevertheless but this is time for a big bonus for the rest of the staff.

Yeah i think it will be distributed among whole management staff and team

It’s not the same:


Each main Indian player itself is getting 600k USD..
120k USD for reserve players.

Mohsin would had also distinguished between reserve and main, that amount was for main players

It wasn't the government that got Lata Mangeshkar to do a concert.

It was a different story. A tragic love story.

Do you mean Raj Singh Dungarpur, I feel it was a rumour,
Further Lata Mangeshwar herself was huge cricket fan could have done it for India.
She has done many such Charity Concerts for various initiatives.

Ofcourse it was Raj Singh Dungarpur who asked Lataji to do the concert.

It's no rumour.
