Indian Women’s Cricket team are currently on a tour to West Indies to play three ODIs and five T20I matches. The ODI series, starting on November 1, will also form a part of the ongoing 2017–20 ICC Women's Championship. The opening game of the series will be played at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. But things aren't too comfortable for the Indian team from a non-cricket angle.
The Indian women cricket team were sent to the West Indies without their daily allowance. The new office bearers at the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) immediately transferred the pending allowances into the accounts of the cricketers.
When BCCI found out about the impending allowances, the board took charge at the earliest and transferred the amounts on October 30. While speaking with IANS, a leading BCCI official stated that the financial process was started under the Committee of Administrators (CoA) on September 18 itself. Saba Karim, who is GM Cricket Operations and women's cricket in-charge, was also informed about the same through a mail of approval later that week but there was no development made on the matter until October 24.
While speaking with a media outlet, another BCCI official questioned the delay in development in spite of sending repeated emails to ex-cricketer Saba Karim. The latest incident has raised a lot of questions as this is not the first time when Karim delayed a process which was related to women’s cricket.
