Mahendra Singh Dhoni has turned everything he has touched to gold. He has won every ICC trophy there is to win and has even lifted ICC mace for topping the test ranking.
Even after announcing his retirement from test cricket, Dhoni has been enjoying a top grade BCCI contract because of his stature.
Indian players’ contracts are categorised into three grades A, B and C in which they get retainers of 2 cr, 1 cr and 50 lakhs respectively, match fees excluded.
Now there have been talks of new contracts system and this system could be in place even before Team India leaves for the tri-series in Sri Lanka on 3rd March.
The BCCI’s Committee of Administrators (CoA) had a meeting in Mumbai on Tuesday where this decision was taken.

“It’s important to have the new contracts in place without which the IPL player insurance policy cannot be executed.” BCCI source reveals to India Today.
A team of Dhoni, Kohli and Ravi Shastri were also part of the discussion regarding the new contracts. The new contracts will be divided into four categories A+, A , B and C, each player’s performances will play key role on the standard of the contract they receive. A+ category will only be for the exclusive group of players who perform consistently in all formats of the game.
Since performance is the key part of the new system likes of Pujara, Jadeja and Ashwin will get immense bonuses due to India’s remarkable performances in Test cricket even though they are out of India’s limited over apparatus.
This also means Dhoni will miss out on A+ category as he has retired from Test cricket and he will no longer be at top most tier of Indian cricket. Dhoni is part of the group discussing the terms of new contrat system with BCCI and he always find new ways to lead by example and pave a righteous path for future generations.
