Dhoni to get paid less than Bhuvneshwar and Jasprit

Dhoni to get paid less than Bhuvneshwar and Jasprit

Grade A players which include Mithali Raj, Jhulan Goswami, Harmanpreet Kaur and a new entrant Smriti Mandhana, who will earn INR 50 lakhs per annum, a 35 Lakh increase from the previous contract.

The central contracts mark a departure from past year when Test specialists were mainly kept in the top category. Dhoni has been moved to second tier Grade A, below Grade A+, in the new payment structure announced by the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA). The salary announced for the players is over and above their match fee. "I don't understand what was the hurry for the CoA because by end of this month we would get a clear picture of our finances", the official told mid-day. While most of the names in the top level central contracts have come as expected, one big name seems to be missing from the list.

In a bid to strike a balance between players' demands and BCCI's coffers, the CoA has arrived at a compromise formula while finalizing the much-delayed player retainers for 2017-18. It acts as a security to play freely for India and not worry about his IPL fate if there is an injury.

The CoA made a decision to withhold Mohammad Shami's contract after the pacer's wife accused him of domestic violence and adultery. Whether the performance has been taken as the parameter to exclude Mohammed Shami from the list or not, remains to seen. The reason to create this fund is to recognise the fluctuations in the BCCI's actual annual income to which the BCCI will contribute approximately R125 crore from its surplus.




Cricketers in Grade A+ category will get Rs.7 crore annually while those in Grade A Rs.5 crore. And this is why he is not included in A+ players but in Grade A.

Grade A: R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, MS Dhoni and Wridhhiman Saha.

Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey, Axar Patel, Karun Nair, Suresh Raina, Parthiv Patel and Jayant Yadav will receive Rs 1 Cr each for being named in Group C.
