The Indian cricket board’s Special General Meeting, scheduled on June 22, will debate on the new player contracts proposed by the CoA that saw the introduction of an A+ category and a steep pay hike to cricketers. Under the new compensation structure, five ‘A+’ category players get Rs 7 crore each per annum, while seven Grade A, seven Grade B and as many Grade C cricketers are on annual retainer fee of Rs 5 crore, Rs 3 crore and Rs 1 crore each respectively. If sources are to be believed…. the BCCI office-bearers had been kept in the dark in the whole process and the new compensation structure, too, bypassed the general body. Also, they could also disapprove the appointment of the new anti-corruption head, Ajit Singh. The CoA okayed the appointment of Singh who is a former Director of General Police, Rajasthan, as the new ACU head in March, replacing Neeraj Kumar.
