Team England Player Partnership Statement
Following a meeting today of all of the England men’s centrally contracted cricketers, the players have agreed to make an initial donation of £0.5m to the ECB and to selected good causes, the precise details of the charitable donation to be decided over the next week by the players. This contribution is the equivalent of all of the England centrally contracted players taking a 20% reduction in their monthly retainers for the next three months.
The players will continue to discuss with the ECB the challenging situation faced by the game and society as a whole and will consider how best to support the ECB and both the cricketing and wider community going forward.
England Women's Player Partnership Statement
Following conversations over the last week, the England women centrally contracted players have volunteered a salary reduction for the months of April, May and June in line with their coaches and support staff.
England captain, Heather Knight, said:
“All the players felt like it was the right response in the current climate to take a pay cut in line with what our support staff are taking. We know how the current situation is affecting the game and we want to help as much as we can. We will be discussing with the ECB further ways we can help the game in the coming weeks.”
