other top In­dian play­ers for a pe­riod end­ing Septem­ber 2017.

Chetesh­war Pu­jara, who scored a double cen­tury in the drawn game against Aus­tralia in Ranchi, left-arm spin­ner Ravin­dra Jadeja and opener Mu­rali Vi­jay were the new ad­di­tions to the top of the three grades.

The cash-rich Board of Con­trol for Cricket in In­dia (BCCI) also hiked the re­tainer fee for Grade B and C play­ers while in­creas­ing the match fee across for­mats.

Play­ers will now get US$23,000 for a Test match, US$9,000 in a one-day international and earn US$4,000 for a Twenty20 game.

The de­ci­sion to re­struc­ture the cen­tral con­tracts and match fees was taken by the BCCI in con­junc­tion with the Supreme Court ap­pointed Com­mit­tee of Ad­min­is­tra­tors (CoA). AFP
