Highest Paid In Indian Squad : Harmanpreet Kaur is highest paid in the current Indian Women’s squad, she earns 25% to 40% extra match fees based on his captain’s tag. Her retainer fee’s rise from $65k a year to $100k based on match fees. Smriti Mandhana, Deepti Sharma, Poonam Yadav, and Rajeshwari Gayakwad all were selected in A contract. But still no Indian women player selected for A+ category where retainer fee is more than 1 crore a year.

  • Grade A Retainer Fee’s : 50 lakh Indian Rupee
  • Grade B Retainer Fee’s : 30 lakh Indian Rupee
  • Grade C Retainer Fee’s : 10 lakh Indian Rupee

Since there is no selection made for A+ contract yet, but based on yearly performance we might have the next Indian women cricketer who will earn contract A+ where she can earn (1 Crore Indian Rupee) a year as of retainer fee’s.

  • T20 Match Fees : 3 lakh Indian Rupee
  • ODI Match Fees : 6 lakh Indian Rupee
  • Test Match Fees : 15 lakh Indian Rupee
