XtraTime Web Desk: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) today introduced a new contract system with the players and a new compensation structure in Indian cricket which will help the cricketers to earn more than they used to get before.

"The Hon’ble Supreme Court of India appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) for BCCI on Wednesday announced the Annual Player Contracts for the period from October 2017 to September 2018. The CoA was of the view that the performance and position of Indian Cricket needs to be recognised with the fee structure comparable to the best in the world," the BCCI wrote in a statement.

The parent body of Indian cricket have introduced a new grade system from today which has Grade A+ : Rs 7 Cr, Grade A: Rs 5 Cr, Grade B: Rs 3 Cr, Grade C: Rs 1 Cr. Before today, there was no Grade A+ in the system and Grade A players used to get Rs 2 Cr. On the otherhand , Grade B and C cricketers received Rs 1 Cr and Rs 50 Lakh respectively in previous contract system. There is a great news for Indian women’s international cricketer as well as the BCCI has introduced gradation system for them for the very first time. There will be Grade A and Grade B in senior women division.

What surprising is, India skipper Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar & Jasprit Bumrah are in A+ grade but former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is placed in Grade A as he won’t feature in Test cricket. India’s pace spearhead Mohammed Shami’s name has been ignored completely in these lists. Last night Shami’s wife alleged that he has extra-marital affairs with other girls and that could al be the reasons for his omission.

Grade A+: Kohli, Rohit, Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar, Bumrah [7cr]

Grade A: Ashwin, Jadeja, Vijay, Pujara, Rahane, Dhoni, Saha [5cr]

Grade B: KL Rahul, Umesh, Kuldeep, Chahal, Pandya, Karthik, Ishant [3cr]

Grade C: Jadhav, Pandey, Axar, Karun, Raina, Parthiv, Jayant [1cr]
