The coronavirus outbreak has triggered every sporting event across the globe. Tournaments, matches or series have been postponed or suspended to curb the spread of the coronavirus. And with no sports lined up, sports associations or boards will have to face huge losses. To restrict the losses of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Virat Kohli and Co. may likely face a pay cut.

Reportedly, Football players like Messi will take 70 per cent less salary from their club. Spain and Italy’s clubs have found it tough to generate revenues considering the absence of sporting action. Juventus player Cristiano Ronaldo, manager Maurizio Sarri, as well as the rest of the teammates, will incur pay cut, to help the club and several employees survive the COVID-19 scare.

The president of the Indian Cricketers Association (ICA), Ashok Malhotra said the Indian cricketers might have to face pay cuts as BCCI will face losses because no cricket event is scheduled for a month.

“The BCCI is the parent body of the cricketers. It’s a company. If a company is making losses, then it all filters down. In Europe, almost all the footballers, normally paid the highest among all, are taking a huge pay cut, which has been announced by their associations. This was an unexpected scenario. These are very tough times,” Malhotra was quoted as saying by the Times of India.

“So, everyone will have to try and contribute from their pocket. I know it’s not fair to reduce the salaries of the players, but if the parent body is not earning as much as it was doing before, the cricketers will definitely have to expect a pay cut,” Malhotra was quoted as saying by the Times of India.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 is also under threat of cancellation because the cases in India have dramatically increased. However, according to the current reports, BCCI is planning to host the 13th edition between August-September. A shorter-version remains a part of the contingency plan.
