England have a system of a full central contract of two years worth 50,000 pounds ($69,264) as their retainer fee.

The current World Cup champions Australia's current minimum retainer fee has seen the base rate go up from $40,000 to $72,076 with a 80.2 percent increase that invites a stark comparison as India is higher in terms of retainer fee with a contract signed under $76000 (Rs. 50 lakhs) for Grade A players. 

Next in line is New Zealand between $20,000 to $34,000, under a three year MoU.

The West Indies were the first ones to introduce a central contract for women cricketers, ranging from $12,000 to $30,000.

Pakistan's recent contract awards an annual fee of Rs.10 lakh to a category A player.
