Aakash Chopra on RCB ahead of WPL 23
“In terms of bowling, the team has Renuka Singh Thakur, which is a great acquisition for the simple reason. There are not many Indian fast bowlers. Renuka Singh Thakur at this point in time is the best fast bowler in the country, and she is in the team along with the best batter in the country as well,”
“The player who can play best in the T20 format is Richa Ghosh, whom they have, and in today’s scenario, Richa bats really well in the lower order. So RCB is loaded with a lot of experience and superstars. Also with the best batter, best bowler, and best striker in Richa Ghosh,”
He further added that
“So, what they did for the women’s team is, they took Smriti Mandhana for 3.4 crores; it’s a tournament for 3 weeks, and you are getting 3.4 crores for 3 weeks. In the men’s tournament, they have to play for 8 weeks, and in those 8 weeks, they get thrice the amount of 10 crores. Not a single bowl has been bowled in the WPL. And if we talk about pay parity, then women are doing a lot better than men.”
