The Indian cricket team faced arch-rival Pakistan twice in the recently concluded ICC Champions Trophy in England. Even though Pakistan went on to win the title by defeating India by 180 runs, there remains a huge difference in the salary of players of both the sides.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) decided to reward its players after the Champions Trophy victory by giving them new contracts. However, despite the appraisal, Indian players are earning much, much more than their counterparts. The annual pay of the Indian skipper Virat Kohli is four times more than that of Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed. According to the latest contracts given by BCCI, Kohli who is in Grade A category makes Rs 2 crore per year.
