Calling them ‘unsung heroes’, the BCCI on Monday introduced a prize cash of Rs 1.25 crore for the curators and groundsmen, who labored throughout the just-concluded Indian Premier League. New entrants Gujarat Titans lifted the winners’ trophy after thrashing Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets within the summit conflict on Sunday night time. “I’m pleased to announce a prize money of INR 1.25 crores for the men who gave us the best games in #TATAIPL 2022. The unsung heroes – our curators and groundsmen across 6 IPL venues this season,” Shah stated in a tweet.
“We’ve witnessed some high octane games and I would like (to) thank each one of them for their hardwork. 25 lacs each for CCI, Wankhede, DY Patil and MCA, Pune. 12.5 lacs each for Eden and Narendra Modi stadium.”
For the primary time, the BCCI is giving hefty incentives to groundsmen.
The 70 league matches of the cash-rich league have been performed at 4 venues in Maharashtra — Wankhede stadium and Brabourne stadium in Mumbai, the DY Patil stadium in Navi Mumbai and the Maharashtra Cricket Association stadium at Gahunje in Pune.
