BCCI reward of Rs 50 lakh for Dravid, Rs 30 lakh to players
New Delhi: The BCCI on Saturday announced a cash reward of Rs 50 lakh for the Under-19 chief coach Rahul Dravid while the victorious squad members will receive Rs 30 lakh each. The other members of the support staff including fielding coach Abhya Sharma and bowling coach Paras Mhambrey will be richer by Rs 20 lakh. In a marked departure from the usual norm where the players, who have done it on the field get greater share of the prize money, the COA-led BCCI has decided that the chief coach should get the biggest share. "India is known for its guru shishya parampara and the Guru always gets more. Obviously, the stature of the coach matters a lot," a senior office-bearer, who was a part of the policy decision said on Saturday.
