Mithali Raj was awarded the Woman of the Match award recently for her significant score of 97 runs against Malaysia, which led to our team’s win in their first match of the Asia Cup.

The official account for the Indian Cricket team uploaded her picture with the reward and people did not hold back in expressing their dismay over the amount.

People were quick to notice the blatant discrimination, calling the amount ‘insulting’ to the calibre of the player. 

When our men are rewarded the MOM title, their prize money is reportedly at least $2000, which is significantly higher than the mere amount of $250 that was awarded to Mithali Raj.
