Grade payment system yet not decided

Kolkata :

The much-delayed graded payments system for Indian cricketers is unlikely to be finalised before the Asia Cup. At present, the deal is being looked into by the players lawyers. Then, once they spell out their stand, the BCCI lawyers will be seized of the matter. Consequently, a meeting of the four-member special committee set up to grade players for introducing the system would be convened only after the legal matters were sorted out. The special committee comprising BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmiya, Secretary S K Nair, Coach John Wright and Selection Committee Chairman Syed Kirmani is expected to choose around 20 players to be put on the three-tier contract. The grading committee will also decide which players would be grouped under A, B and C categories. While those under A category would receive annual retainership of Rs 60 lakh, players placed in groups B and C will get Rs 30 lakh and Rs 15 lakh respectively. The contracted players as well and others, who make the playing eleven, are likely to be paid Rupees two lakh per Test and Rs 1.6 lakh for every one-day international. (PTI)
