BCCI’s new contract system:
Team India has brought the demand for increment of the players has approved. In BCCI’s new contract system, players’ salaries have increased by more than three times.
Indeed, after watching the salaries of cricket players of top teams around the world, Indian players also demanded equal pay. After a long interaction between board and players, a new contract system has been created in which the players were divided into four grades instead of three. Now there will also be an A + grade with A, B and C.
Players in the A + grade will get one year’s seven crore rupees. Five players have been included in this. These are the players who play all three formats, that is, Captain Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Jaspreet Bumrah.
Then there is A grade in which seven players are involved. They will get five crore rupees annually. There are players who are particularly sure to test. Apart from R Ashwin, R Jadeja, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Riddhiman Saha, the only one MS Dhoni is a player who does not play Test cricket.
Grade B players will be given Rs 3 crore for the period from October 2017 to September 2018. There are Lokesh Rahul, Umesh Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuswendra Chahal, Hardik Pandya, Ishant Sharma and Dinesh Karthik. Grade C players will get Rs one crore rupees annually. These include Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey, Akshar Patel, Karun Nair, Suresh Raina, Parthiv Patel and Jayant Yadav.
Please note that there were three grades in the previous agreement, A Grade was given two crores, B grade one rupee and a C grade holder got Rs 50 lakhs.
Apart from this, the salary increase of women cricketers has also increased. Here players are divided into three grades. A grade will be given 50 lakh rupees annually, B grade up to 30 lakh rupees and women players in C grade will get 10 lakh rupees annually. Four players have been placed in top grade in women cricketers, including Captain Mitali Raj, Harmanpreet Kaur, Jhulan Goswami and Smruti Mandaana.
In addition to international matches, this is also focused on domestic cricket this time. In this, senior male players in the playing eleven will get 35 thousand rupees per day and players who are in the reserves will get 17.5 thousand rupees. At the same time, the Under-23 players in the Playing XI will get Rs 17.5 thousand per day, Under-19 players will get Rs 10.5 thousand and Under 16 players will receive 3.5 thousand rupees.
For the domestic women cricketers in the playing XI, this amount has been fixed for senior players for Rs 12.5 thousand, under-23 and under-19 players for Rs 5.5 thousand.
The committee constituted by the Supreme Court has given the players their legitimate wages but this whole process is not untouched by the dispute as the names of the regular players of team India like Mohammed Shami have not been included in any grade. The answer will be asked by the BCCI.
hope BCCI’s new contract system will be beneficier for team India.
