The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to give equal match fees to men's and women's cricket teams. The announcement was made by BCCI secretary Jay Shah on Twitter. 

"I'm pleased to announce @BCCI's first step towards tackling discrimination. We are implementing a pay equity policy for our contracted @BCCIWomen cricketers. The match fee for both Men and Women Cricketers will be the same as we move into a new era of gender equality in Indian Cricket," Shah tweeted on Thursday.
