The drafts for the central contracts of the Indian cricketers have been laid. However, the implementation is not sanctioned yet. The reason behind this halt still remains unknown.

According to sources, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) administration synthesized an extensive scheme.

It has been learnt the blueprints for the central contracts are at par with the global level. However, the file is not in the open yet.


A fragment of the board affirms the offers were sent to the officials and subordinates of the finance committee. This also included Chairman Jyotiraditya Scindia.

Moreover, the members remain firm about them not receiving any such proposals.

I have not heard from the COA (Committee of Administrators) or the CEO (Rahul Johri). I had told them to schedule a meeting (of the finance committee) some time ago,” asserts Scindia according to Mirror.

The sources in the proximity of the office-bearers have claimed to have no clue. Those who have communicated with the CoA wants the board members to take the decision relating to financial policy.

Indian domestic players earn only INR 10,000 per match day.

CoA instead were apprehensive about playing a key role in the aforementioned matter.

It is, therefore, a matter of curiosity as the players were oriented about the contract. It is pending case since October 1, 2017.

Those who have been in touch with the CoA wants the board members to take the decision owing to financial policy.

Players within the brackets are subsequently seen to earn somewhere between INR 6 and 10 crore.

Demand has been about an increase in a pay at par with the Australian and English players.

Annual central contracts

BCCI member remarks, “Sri Lanka Cricket has given over 100 of its domestic player’s annual contracts. The same must be done here in India too. We are focussed on the same 25-30 players who get lucrative IPL deals and hefty central contracts. We must look at the contracts for domestic players,”
