BCCI Retirement Policy – The Board of Cricket Control in India – BCCI is the richest board in the world. But, the attitude of the members towards the personal and the integral aspects of the board needs to be desired.
The board has spent more than 200 crores for litigation and now have imposed a retirement policy on 17 cricket scorers who have turned 60 in this current season.
But the board didn’t bother to inform the 17 scorers about this policy and there was no press statement issued for the same. With that, the scorers weren’t assigned any matches. If the scorers were assigned, then the board would withdraw that in the last moment.
BCCI Retirement Policy
The men who work off the field are the real and the unsung hero of cricket, the gentlemen’s game. Due to their hard work in the field of scoring and stats, cricket is known as such an interesting game.
These scorers have pursued their work with dedication and passion for decades and in return, they have not been paid up to their standards and hard work. Now the scorers feel that the management should have informed them about this in an appropriate manner.
BCCI Retirement Policy – The BCCI Empanelled Scorers have written a letter to BCCI President Sourav Ganguly saying that the announcement of the forthcoming season, which will be the final season, could have been more appropriate rather than turning to be a shocker. This news was not taken in a proper frame of mind.
One of the scorers told the reporters that they were not employees of BCCI that they should retire. He also added that the umpires and the match referee receive more salary and pensions and that the scorers have no such benefits.
BCCI Retirement Policy – They do this work only because of their passion and they started working as scorers with just 50 rupees per day as their salary. They have to make a lot of sacrifice despite being a regular employee and have no promotion in this job because they want to continue working in their centres.

Like the players, the scorers too have an upper age limit. In many places, people take these scorer jobs after their retirement from their active careers. The scorers do not need the fitness as the players and the umpires. If they have a good vision and are reasonably healthy, then working as a scorer will not be a problem. In fact, the scorer who covered the 2019 world cup final in England was 70 years old.
BCCI Retirement Policy – The scorers want that BCCI should reinstate the retired scorers of this season and with that, the board should place a retirement policy in consultation with them. They should also have a proper recruit system for the scorers.
The board has not hired any scorers since the year 2004, so how can they expect the existing scorers to retire?
