MS Dhoni dropped from BCCI's central contracts list

MS Dhoni Dropped From BCCI

MS Dhoni is no longer a centrally contracted player with the BCCI.

Dhoni has not played since India's loss to New Zealand in the World Cup semi-final in July 2019. He had been awarded a Grade A contract, which brings a retainer of INR 5 crore, in 2019.

In a recent interview to CNN IBN, India coach Ravi Shastri stressed that Dhoni might still play the T20 World Cup later this year if he has a good IPL.

While Dhoni has not revealed anything about his future, he is very much expected to captain Chennai Super Kings in the upcoming edition of the IPL. "He has finished his Test career, he may soon end his ODI career".

KL Rahul has been promoted to Grade A while the likes of Navdeep Saini, Mayank Agarwal (Grade B), Shreyas Iyer, Washington Sundar and Deepak Chahar have been rewarded with annual contracts as well.


India captain Virat Kohli, star opener Rohit Sharma and pacer Jasprit Bumrah have retained their top grade A+ BCCI contracts of Rs 7 Crore.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday announced the Annual Player Contracts for Team India for the period starting from October 2019 to September 2020.

Category A: Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Mohammad Shami, Ishant Sharma, Kuldeep Yadav and Rishabh Pant.

Wriddhiman Saha has also moved up from Grade C (Rs 1 crore) to Grade B (Rs 3 crore).
