But the women agreed the offer of salary cut. So the board will cut 20 percent of their pay in April, May and June. And men will donate 20 percent as their donations.

Heather Knight, captain of the women’s team, said:

“The cricketers feel it is the right time to cooperate. We know how the current situation is affecting the game and we want to help as much as possible. We will discuss with the ECB how we can help in the coming weeks.”

The men’s cricket organization Players’ Cricket Association (PCA) said in a message that “The donating payment for the next three months is equal to 20 percent of the money of the central contract players.”
