Former Australian cricketer Brad Hodge has made a startling revelation regarding the non-payment of the requisite dues by the BCCI. BCCI is already facing criticism for not paying the Indian Women’s team their well-deserved prize money for the 2020 T20 Women’s World Cup that reportedly amounts to $50000. To top it off, Brad Hodge, who once played for the Kochi Tuskers Kerala, accused the Indian cricket board of not paying 35% of their money earned from ten years ago and sarcastically asked if they could locate it.
Kochi Tuskers Kerala was part of the 2011 Indian Premier League with stars like Brendon McCullum, Brad Hodge S Sreesanth, Ravindra Jadeja, RP Singh, Michael Klinger, Muttiah Muralitharan, VVS Laxman, Thisara Perera, Parthiv Patel, and many others. However, Kochi, captained by Mahela Jayawardene and coached by Geoff Lawson, could not perform well in the only season they participated.
Though they delivered some impressive performances, they finished that edition in the eighth position with six wins in 14 games. Meanwhile, apart from the amount of difference in the central contracts between the men’s and Women’s team, the BCCI has also received flak for not paying the prize money due from the 2020 World Cup. The Federation of International Cricketers’ Association has urged the Indian Women’s outfit to form a union for receiving the same.
Below is Brad Hodge’s comment as he replied to The Telegraph’s post on Twitter:
