BCCI drops MS Dhoni from central contracts list

The contract, as always has been bracketed under four layers- A+, A, B, and C. While Indian captain Virat Kohli, vice-captain Rohit Sharma, and fast-bowling spearhead Jasprit Bumrah have been duly awarded the A+ contracts worth Rs 7 Crore, former Indian captain MS Dhoni is notably missing.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the central contracts for the Indian cricket team for the period October 2019- September 2020.

Since then, speculations have galore around MS Dhoni's global future, even as the former captain has continued to stay tight-lipped.

KL Rahul, who has been in ominous touch with the bat, has moved up from Grade B (Rs 3 crore) to Grade A (Rs 5 crore).

Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni hasn't played global cricket since India's loss vs New Zealand in the ICC ODI World Cup semi-final past year. He has been on an sabbatical and has refused to divulge his future plans.

India head coach Ravi Shastri had recently said that Dhoni may soon end his ODI career but could be in contention for a spot in the T20 World Cup squad provided he does well in the IPL.

However, all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who is on the road to recovery from a back injury, finds himself in the Grade B category. As many as 27 players have been divided into these four categories.

Shreyas Iyer, who has been in sublime form for India and has helped in solving the No.4 conundrum lately, has been fitted into the Grade C category along with many prominent names like Kedar Jadhav, Navdeep Saini, Deepak Chahar, Hanuma Vihar and Washington Sundar.

MS Dhoni has been out of action since World Cup 2019 in July.

Legendary India wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been omitted from the list of BCCI's annually contracted players for the period from October 2019 to September 2020. Others to lose contracts were Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik and Khaleel Ahmed. Dhoni had missed the West Indies tour due to his training for the parachute regiment of the Indian Army in Kashmir valley. So he will be left with T20, he will definitely play the IPL.
