Cricket Australia severed ties with Sarah Styles, head of women's cricket, because of this move

Cricket Australia is not seen emerging from the corona virus. Cricket Australia has suffered heavy losses in the last four months. Cricket Australia has broken ties with Sarah Styles, the head of women's cricket, in view of the cut in expenses. Cricket Australia has decided to remove 40 employees in view of the financial crisis.

Styles played an important role in the progress of women's cricket in the country. The Australian women's cricket team won the T20 World Cup title in the second week of March in the presence of 86 thousand spectators at the MCG. But within just three months, Cricket Australia decided to remove the head of women's cricket.

Cricket Australia said in a statement to The Sidney Morning Herald, “Cricket Australia has been at the top in connecting women with sports and Sarah was at the forefront of this strategy. We are sorry for Sara's departure, she did a great job in women's cricket, which means we are in a position to achieve success in the future as well.

Salary reduction

According to the CA, women represent 45 percent of its workforce, while five of its 11 executives and three of the nine board members are women. The CA had broken up with his long-time batting consultant Graeme Hick some time ago.

Earlier, at the end of April, Cricket Australia had announced a cut in the salary of 80 per cent of its staff. Cricket Australia had to face criticism for its move, because of which the preparations for the Twenty-Twenty World Cup in October have been affected.
