Sachin Tendulkar, who is retiring at the end of the ongoing Wankhede Test in Mumbai, has been put in Grade A alongside Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli.

Sachin Tendulkar, who has announced his retirement at the end of the ongoing Test match in Mumbai against the West Indies, still figures on the Board of Control for Cricket in India's list of contracted players for 2013-2014. Tendulkar, who is playing his 200th Test, figures in the elite Grade A alongside Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina and Ravichandran Ashwin. A Grade A contract ensures a player gets a retainer fee of Rs 1 crore each for the season. Interestingly, Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh have not been given contracts.

Grade B, worth 50 lakhs each, has Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, Pragyan Ojha, Ishant Sharma, Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Umesh Yadav, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rohit Sharma.

The Grade C list -- 25 lakh each - has Dinesh Karthik, Amit Mishra, Wriddhiman Saha, Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, Vinay Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Jaydev Unadkat and Mohit Sharma. Any player who turns out for India in a Test/ODI or T20 and not on the list of contracted players, automatically comes under Grade C.
