But notable exclusion Suresh Raina has not been given a BCCI central contract,he has’nt played for over an year and this is an idication that Suresh Raina might not feature in the long term plans as the things stand on the BCCI selectors.Same as the case with Harbhajan singh has’nt played for India for a while and therefore does’nt get a central contract.Yuvraj singh go who made comeback to India‘s ODI and T20 teams under Virat Kohli has been awarded a fresh central contract,he is in the Grade B category which means he get paid 1cr Rs annually and that’s the retainer  BCCI provides.

The support staff’s salary has’nt been hiked for since last 4 years now.That issue was raised in the meeting.committee of administrators looking into this matter and supports staff can expect a pay rise soon.
