Women's Big Bash League
A $500,000 contribution from Australia's male cricketers has ensured their female counterparts now have their private health insurance covered.
The Female Private Health Insurance Scheme, launched by the Australian Cricketers' Association (ACA) this summer, will see all 111 women's domestic and Southern Stars representatives covered for at least the next two years.
The cover is particularly welcoming for the game's domestic players, given the minimum contract of the Women's Big Bash League (WBBL) is $3000, while their 50-over competition has a retainer of $7000."
We congratulate the ACA on this welcome initiative.
