MS Dhoni is no longer a centrally contracted player with the BCCI. His name didn't feature in the 27 contracts handed out by the Indian board on Thursday. He last played for India during the World Cup in 2019 post which there has been a suspense around his future. He had been awarded a Grade A contract, which brings a retainer of INR 5 crore, in 2019. Top-order batsman KL Rahul made the jump from Grade B to A, an incentive of INR 2 crore.

 

While Dhoni has not played any professional cricket since the World Cup, India coach Ravi Shastri has said more than once that Dhoni could throw his name in the ring for the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year if he does well in the IPL. Others to lose contracts were Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik and Khaleel Ahmed.

 

BCCI's central contracts list for 2019-2020

Grade A+ (INR 7 cr): Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah

Grade A (INR 5 cr): R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Kuldeep Yadav, Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul

Grade B (INR 3 cr): Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Hardik Pandya, Wriddhiman Saha, Mayank Agarwal

Grade C (INR 1 cr): Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey, Hanuma Vihari,, Navdeep Saini, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Shreyas Iyer, Washington Sundar

Otherwise, there weren't many massive changes from the contracts list from last year. Test opener Mayank Agarwal, who made his debut in Melbourne in a delicately poised series and immediately impressed, was the big gainer, entering the list at Grade B, which comes with a retainer of INR 3 crore. Test wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha, who had dropped to Grade C thanks to injuries, came back to join Agarwal in Grade B.

 

Other new names in the contracts - as of now - included limited-overs specialists: Navdeep Saini, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Shreyas Iyer and Washington Sundar. They all entered the system at Grade C, which comes with a retainer of INR 1 crore.

The A+ grade, which includes players who feature in all three formats, remained unchanged with Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah retaining their INR 7 crore fee. The injured Hardik Pandya, who has played only T20Is since the World Cup, retained his Grade B contract.

 

These contracts are for October 2019 to September 2020. The total number of retainers has come down from 29 to 27. The recommendations for these contracts are made by national selectors based on a combination of performance in the previous year and the roles players are expected to play in the contract period. If someone out of this list gets an India cap during the period, he automatically gets a retainer.

The end is nigh. Where are the conspiracy theorists talking about how everything is a ploy to bring Dhoni back?? 

Dhoni is done and rightly so. Maybe two years too late but better late than never. 

Its clear the captain and management wants him in the team while Ganguly, etc does not

Devoid of a 'central contract' if Dhoni were to be selected now, does it imply that he gets to represent India pro bono?

 

Can't think of a bigger act of patriotism. :isalute: 

:phehe:  They dont get a retainer but I think they are paid per match, not that Dhoni needs the money

The IPL is probably his best bet to get back in.

I feel the same level of frustration seeing Saini and Thakur in the same bracket. Saini should be a grade higher.

If Mumbai wants to lobby some of their players, why the fck can't they do it for someone like a Shaw rather than BS like Thakur? Oh right, Brat doesn't want him.

Contracts are for mere mortals, not Lord Thala :adore: if the Lord wishes to grace the T20 WC after accepting our offering of trundlers like unadcut, Kaul in IPL, who are we to stop him
