Internet Desk: Indian captain Virat Kohli along with MS Dhoni and Ravi Shastri will be meeting the Committee of Administrators in New Delhi on November 30. According to a report the three will meet the Supreme Court appointed COA to discuss on the Future Tours Programme (FTP) and players’ salary hike issue. The conflict of interest rules may also be discussed.

It is learnt that the team management had approached CoA chief Vinod Rai to elaborately discuss on the players’ payment and contracts before the BCCI finalises the annual contracts of the players which are up for renewal since October 01.

Under the current contract the Board pays Rs 2 crore to Grade A players, Rs 1 crore to Grade B players and Rs 50 lakh to Grade C players.

Former Team India Coach Anil Kumble had also proposed to the COA to revamp in the present annual retainer and fee structure. Kumble had suggested to trim down the categories from the existing three to two. However, he had recommended a steep hike, with Grade A players getting Rs 4 crore and Rs 3 crore for Grade B players.

The team management will also discuss the issue of FTP. The Indian captain has openly criticised the cramping of the schedules between series. It is learnt that the players do not want the board to squeeze in a series once the FTP is finalised. The new FTP will be from 2019 to 2022, which will include the Test and ODI championship.

The CoA will be hearing all concerned parties before advising BCCI office bearers.
