Committee of BCCI doubles Annual pay for Indian Cricketers

Early Diwali For Indian Cricketers

However, the fact the duo has been on song during India's long season of Test cricket at home - combined with the growing demand for the need for Test specialists' compensation to match at least the base price of top IPL players - played to its advantage when the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) sat down on Wednesday to prepare the list of contracts.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) also announced that the annual retainership of each contract category will be doubled.

The Match Fee enhancement for men cricketers will be effective from October 1 onwards and Rs 15 lakhs per Test, Rs 6 lakhs per ODI and Rs 3 lakhs for T20 worldwide will be paid.

Cheteshwar Pujara, Ravindra Jadeja, Murali Vijay, R Ashwin, Ajinkya Rahane, are the latest players who have been upgraded to Grade A Category in the annual player contracts. According to reports, the 30-year-old is now considered a "reluctant cricketer", apparently more focused on his family and setting up his own business.

Opening batsman, KL Rahul, medium-pacer Jasprit Bumrah and batsman Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, and Wriddhiman Saha, are the notable players, in Grade B, whose annual salary has been increased, from Rs 50 lakh to Rs 1 crore.

Jadeja made a giant leap in the contracts and moved from Grade C to Grade A along with Cheteshwar Pujara. "So we have taken inputs from lots of people and we have reviewed it", Vinod Rai, who is the chairman of the CoA, said.

The likes of Karun Nair, Jayant Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kedar Jadhav have been rewarded with Grade C contracts for their performances at the worldwide level.

They are Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Amit Mishra, Manish Pandey, Axar Patel, Karun Nair, Hardik Pandya, Ashish Nehra, Kedar Jadhav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Parthiv Patel, Jayant Yadav, Mandeep Singh, Dhawal Kulkarni, Shardul Thakur and Rishabh Pant.

The most prominent omission from the list of 32 contracted players is that of Suresh Raina. Also, the match fee per ODI and T20I has been doubled; players will now earn INR 6 lakh ($9,000 approx) per ODI and INR 3 lakh ($4,500 approx) per T20I.

The trio join captain Virat Kohli, wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni, all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin and batsman Ajinkya Rahane in the list of players with Grade-A contracts.
