EXCLUSIVE: English female cricketers will rake in a record pot of over £1 MILLION beating Australia in the World Cup final… with the ICC doubling the winners’ check since they last won the trophy in 2017

  • England women receive more than £1 million by winning this year’s Cricket World Cup
  • They will face Australia in the all-important final on Saturday night
  • The ICC has put the biggest winner’s check ever up for grabs for the draw
  • Unlike the men’s team, the ECB will hand over all the money to their female stars

England’s female cricketers will share a record pot of more than £1million as they beat Australia in the World Cup final tonight in the biggest payday ever for women’s games.

The ICC has doubled the winners’ check since England won the trophy at Lord’s in 2017, increasing the total prize pool to £2.65 million, with the ECB choosing to hand over all the money to players.

Central contract players would also receive winning bonuses, giving many the opportunity to double their salary in one day.

There are 17 centrally contracted players who are paid by the ECB between £40,000 and £110,000 a year, with the average salary in England’s 15-man World Cup squad being around £75,000.

The ECB’s decision to pass on all the prize money for the women’s World Cup is in stark contrast to the way they handle the revenue from the men’s game.

Eoin Morgan’s one-day team won £5million for canceling the 2019 Men’s World Cup, which went to the ECB. Much of that, however, is paid in the form of higher salaries, with a men’s central contract worth around £300,000 plus an allowance of £5,000 per match.
