Delay of payment due to tussle between BCCI and COA?
According to a BCCI official, the payment has been delayed due to the shift of power in BCCI after the implementation of reforms suggested by the Lodha Panel.
The official said, "The BCCI didn't have the official signatory in February and later there was confusion over whether Amitabh Choudhary can clear these payments because only the secretary can give all approvals."
The Indian women's cricket team are also waiting for their match fee cheques. Each member of the women's national team receives Rs 1 lakh per series win. The payment is stuck because no official agreement has been signed till date between them and the BCCI.
