New Zealand to pay female cricketers equally in a new 5-year deal

Under a new five-year agreement reached by NZC, the six major associations, and the New Zealand Cricket Players Association, women’s cricketers in New Zealand will get the same match fees as men.

This will result in a significant pay increase at both the international and provincial levels. The combination of the men’s and women’s professional games under a single master agreement is a first.

Both men and women compete in international matches in a variety of forms, and the match costs are NZ$4000 for ODIs and NZ$2500 for T20Is. Ford Trophy/Hallyburton Johnstone Shield NZ$800, Super Smash NZ$575, and at the domestic level. In the men’s game, the Plunket Shield costs NZ$1750 and a Test match costs NZ$10,250.

The top-ranked New Zealand women’s player will be eligible to earn up to NZ$163,246 per year (an increase from $83,432), followed by the ninth-ranked player at NZ$148,946 ($66,266) and the 17th-ranked player at NZ$142,346 ($62,833).

The top three domestic women’s players in each major association will be eligible for a maximum of $19,146 (up from $3,423), $18,646 ($3,423), and $18,146 ($3,423), respectively.

New Zealand captain Sophie Devine said: “It’s great for the international and domestic women players to be recognised in the same agreement, alongside the men. It’s a massive step forward and will be a huge drawcard for young women and girls.”
