Kedar Jadhav has been a crucial component in the current limited-overs set-up. His lower trajectory off-spin has been handy for the skippers in the middle overs to break partnerships. Besides, he can hit the ball long way in the lower-order, which provides depth to the Indian team.
The all-rounder, thus, finds himself in Grade C, earning Rs 1 crore as salary from BCCI.
