New Delhi: India's cricket board on Saturday introduced a new contract system for its top 20 national team players based on a graded system linked to seniority and performance.
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jaywant Lele said that under the new system the top 20 players would be paid a lump sum apart from their match fee, the Press Trust of India reported.Currently, the players are only given a fee for each match they play.Lele said the players chosen for the new contracts would be classified into three categories, with the top group comprising the best eight players."The contracted players would get a lump-sum amount and bonus apart from the match fee when they play in a series," he said. "If they are injured and miss a series, like Anil Kumble and Sachin Tendulkar, they will still get the lump sum, but not the match fees and bonus," he said.The contract system would be effective from India's tour of South Africa in October, he added.The contract system will be initially for a one-year period and later increased to two years, Lele said.
