Former India captain Shantha Rangaswamy has requested a Committee of Administrators (CoA) using a BCCI to cruise a women cricketers’ longstanding defence of one-time advantage intrigue and a estimable boost in a monthly pension.

The matter could be discussed as early as Saturday when a CoA meets in Mumbai. A infancy of former women cricketers including Rangaswamy feels that a BCCI should have brought them underneath a one-time advantage scheme, only like it did for their masculine counterparts in 2015.

As of now, former women cricketers who have played some-more than 5 Tests get ‘gratis’ from a BCCI with a ones in a top chunk removing Rs 22,500 per month. The stream chunk structure leaves out cricketers who have played reduction than 5 Tests for India.
