Why did BCCI not make Rohit Sharma capital

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) recently released the annual contract list for its players and there were several new faces on the list. On the contract list for class A + were skipper Virat Kohli, vice-captain of white ball cricket Rohit Sharma and Pacer Jasprit Bumrah.

Mohammad Siraj and Shubman Gill made the list, and players like Hardik Pandya received a promotion from Class B to Class A.

Ravindra Jadeja kept his Grade A contract guaranteeing an annual salary of INR 5 crores. Former English cricketer Michael Vaughan, however, has voiced his displeasure that Jadeja did not get the highest paid contract.

Vaughan replied to the tweet, calling it a shame. Vaughan wrote on Twitter: "Shame ... he should be on one of the biggest behind Virat."

However, according to sources, it was revealed that there were talks going on to promote Jadeja from Class A to Class A +.

The annual salary for Class A + is INR 7 crores and the top category is for players who play in all three formats in the starting XI for India.

The top category players are also selected based on their ICC ranking. Jadeja made it into the top 10 ICC all-rounders in both test and ODIs. He is, in fact, number 3 in Test cricket, just behind Ben Stokes and Jason Holder.

According to the report of CricbuzzBCCI insiders announced that the Saurashtra all-rounder was initially being considered for the A + category, but the board decided not to give him a raise.

There is speculation that the all-rounder hasn't played much international cricket in the past six months due to his injuries and missed the entire England tour of India.

MSK Prasad, former Indian cricket chief voter, also spoke on the matter. “Jadeja is a real A + candidate. Those who play all formats and have good ICC rankings are included in the list. I can see no reason why he was not considered for the A + grade, ”said Prasad Cricbuzz.
