Indian team set for double bonanza, to get hike on daily allowance on away tours: Report
The Vinod Rai-led Committee of Administrators (CoA) has reportedly decided to reward the Indian players for their performances on the foreign soil.
According a Mumbai Mirror report, the CoA has decided to double the daily allowances of the Indian players when the team is travelling overseas.
The members of the Indian cricket team are now set to get double the amount that they earlier used to get as a daily allowance on the away tours. The team and the coaching staff, as per the report, will now get a daily allowance of $250 (Rs 17,799.30). Earlier, it was $125 (Rs 8,899.65).
However, there will not be any change in pay when the team is playing at home.
The hike in daily allowance is in addition to the business class travel, laundry and accommodation expenses that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) pays for.
Virat Kohli and Co recently returned from the US and Caribbean after beating West Indies across three formats, including a 2-0 series sweep in the Test cricket, which was a part of the ICC World Test Championship.
Earlier this year, India had completed a Test series win in Australia as they became the first Asian side to beat Australia in the longest format of the game on their home soil.
While India is set to play majority of their matches at home this season, the team will be travelling to New Zealand at the start of the next year..
