    incentive clause

    The Board of Control for Cricket in India has cleared Sourav Ganguly after looking at his endorsement details, after media reports probed into a incentive clause related to spending time at the crease.

    BCCI Vice-President Rajiv Shukla was satisfied with the contract details of the former India captain, saying: "Reports of the clause which talked about more incentives for time spent at the crease are baseless and unfounded. There is nothing objectionable," Shukla said.
    I know, incentive means concession, clause means legal document.
    But I don't think this meaning fits in the above context.
    So, could you help me?

    Re: incentive clause

    If he spent a certain amount of time at the crease, he would be paid more, presumably because a longer time at the crease would increase the exposure of the brand name to the TV cameras.

    I know, incentive means concession, clause means part of a legal document.

    An incentive is something that makes you want to do something. As Tdol said, Ganguly's contract had a clause in it that said 'if you do well you'll be paid more'.
