West Indies Women’s Cricketer, Deandra Dottin Complains

West Indies Women’s cricketer, Deandra Dottin has complained about the disparity in pay between men’s and women’s players and says she may be forced to take up alternative employment if the situation is not addressed.

Citing the example of the respective payouts for the winners at the recent ICC World Twenty/20 in India, Dottin called the disparity “ridiculous” and said that it was “discouraging”.

West Indies men’s side pocketed US$1.6 million for beating England in the final of the tournament, while their women counterparts won US$100,000 after beating Australia.
