prize money parity

DUBAI: Discussions are on to “bridge the gap between women and men’s prize money” in cricket’s global competitions, the ICC’s chief executive Geoff Allardice has said.

The game’s apex body plans to bring in parity in prize money for finishing positions in its men’s and women’s tournaments in the next eight-year cycle starting from 2024 to 2031.

Allardice made the statement after it was pointed out to him that the winners of the ongoing Women’s ODI World Cup in New Zealand will be richer by just one-third of the prize money won by the 2019 men’s World Cup winners.
