For overseas tours, Indian players will get double allowance: Report
New Delhi : With continuous performance by the Indian players on the ground, the Committee of Administrators (CoA) has decided to double the allowance of the players on the foreign soil. According to a report by Mumbai Mirror, the Indian players and coaching staff will now get a daily allowance of $250 (Rs 17,799.30) as compared to the earlier amount of $125 (Rs 8,899.65). The pay at home though remains unchanged.
It also mentioned that the allowance is above the business class travel, accommodation and laundry expenses that the BCCI pays for.
This year, Indian players are scheduled to play most domestic games but they are set to travel to New Zealand at the start of 2020.
Skipper Kohli has time and again said that winning games in the longest format and that too away from home is what his real motive is as leader of the unit. In fact, he has now gone past both M.S. Dhoni and Sourav Ganguly as the most successful Indian skipper on foreign soil.
