The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) recently revealed new contracts for Team India players. As usual, cricketers have been divided into four different categories - A+ (₹7 crores), A (₹5 crores), B (₹3 crores) and C (₹1 crore). World Cup-winning captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s absence from BCCI’s recent contract list has caught the attention of the entire cricket community. The only captain to win all ICC trophies (MS Dhoni) is nowhere in the list of BCCI's contracted players. Fans have started to worry about MS Dhoni’s retirement from international cricket.
After a successful series against Sri Lanka, India started their current series against Australia with a shocking defeat. Virat Kohli and co. were knocked out for 255 in 49.1 overs and Australia made 258 without losing a single wicket in 37.4 overs. India and Australia will face each other in the second ODI on January 17, 2020 at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium. Take a look at the complete list of BCCI’s new contract that is valid from October 2019 to September 2020.
