The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) recently announced a new contract for Team India players. As usual, the players were divided into four categories, i.e. A+ (₹7 crore), A (₹5 crore), B (₹3 crore) and C (₹1 crore). Notably, BCCI left out ex-India captain MS Dhoni from the list of centrally contracted players. Dhoni’s omission from the list has sparked concerns among his fans regarding his future with Team India. MS Dhoni previously represented India during the ill-fated ICC World Cup 2019 semi-final against New Zealand. Since then, the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman has been on a sabbatical from international cricket.
