CA announce pay rise for domestic female players

21 May, 2015

Cricket Australia have announced significant pay rises for female domestic cricketers.

The $600,000 investment by CA and the State and Territory Associations will see the best state players more than double their payments to $17,000.

In addition to these domestic payments, CA-contracted cricketers can earn retainers of more than $50,000 plus tour payments lifting potential earnings to $85,000 over the coming year.

The investment will take the total Women's Payment Fund to $2.26 million up 36 per cent on last year.

All Women's National Cricket League (50 over competition) contracted players will now receive the maximum $7,000 retainer, with all those signed to play in the exciting new WBBL receiving additional retainers of $3000 to $10,000.
