Internet Desk: During the Indian Premier League auctions, all the cricket fans were left stunned when uncapped cricketers like Mohammed Siraj and T Natarajan were sold for a whopping 2.6 and 3 crore respectively. But the same thing might not happen from the forthcoming season. As suggested by former India skipper MS Dhoni and cyurrent captain Virat Kohli, a particular salary cap has been put on the uncapped cricketers for IPL Season 11 and the board has agreed with their suggestion, as per Indian Express.

The reason behind this secision is that such big amounts to the new comers has decreased the value of domestic cricket.” A classic case was Cariappa, who was bought by KKR for Rs 2.4 crore in 2015. He had played a few games in the Karnataka Premier League but hadn’t played for the Karnataka Ranji side. It really sends a wrong message to all first-class players. On one side we have some who play non-stop Ranji Trophy games and earn only 10-12 lakh in an entire season, and here comes a boy who is getting so much. Kohli and Dhoni felt it wasn’t right and BCCI should keep a salary cap on these uncapped players,” a source in the BCCI said.

Dhoni was the mastermind behind this move, and he along with Virat  urged the parent body of to implement this move. Also, the need to pay the regulars in domestic cricket was discussed.
