As a first step in tackling discrimination, the Board of Control for Cricket in India announced to pay equal match fees for both men and women cricketers in India. 

BCCI secretary Jay Shah in a series of tweets said that the Indian cricket board is implementing a pay equity policy for its contracted women players. In the tweet, Shah said that "I’m pleased to announce BCCI’s first step towards tackling discrimination. We are implementing a pay equity policy for our contracted BCCI Women cricketers. The match fee for both Men and Women Cricketers will be the same as we move into a new era of gender equality in Indian Cricket,”.
