Virat Kohli’s Demand For 150% Pay Hike Can Create Trouble For MS Dhoni

Published on 23 May, 2017 at 12:33 pm By

Yes, BCCI is the richest cricket board in the world, but if you compare the Indian cricketers’ wages with other cricket players across the world, it’s really low! The salaries for our incomparable cricketers are so less that they are ranked fourth after England, Australia and South Africa.

But, now the cricketers have realised the discrepancy in their salaries and have demanded a hike. The Indian captain, Virat Kohli himself has proposed this idea.

Kohli and Team India coach Anil Kumble proposed a new three-tier gradation payment system with Test players being paid the highest followed by ODI and T20 players through a joint presentation to Committee of Administrators (CoA) and BCCI in Hyderabad.

The captain has asked for a hike of 150 per cent, that will take the current Grade A payments of Rs 2 crore to a whopping Rs 5 crore. The Indian cricketers must have felt relieved after knowing this news but the change can potentially affect the elite status of former Indian captain MS Dhoni.



 

Since the former captain is only playing in ODIs and T20s, the new proposal will bring a notable reduction in his salary. BCCI is yet to have a Special General Meeting (SGM) to discuss this proposal on 26th May and then it will be ascertained if Dhoni would be made an exception once the new system is approved

As per the existing payment structure, Grade A players get Rs 2 crore, Grade B players earn Rs 1 crore, while Grade C players make Rs 50 lakh. The contracts are exclusive of the match fees, which is Rs 15 lakh for a Test, Rs 7 lakh for ODI and Rs 3 lakh for a T20 game.Since the Test gradation category carries a bigger valuation in the new proposal, therefore, the players like Cheteshwar Pujara, who only plays Test cricket – earn more than those featuring in ODIs and T20s.

 Anil Kumble has also demanded a 30 per cent hike for himself and a 50% hike for the support staff. Virat Kohli’s step will leave his fellow cricketers with happy faces but his proposal can offend his predecessor.
