Pant earns Grade A central contract

Cricbuzz Staff • Last updated on Thu, 07 Mar, 2019, 1

After missing out on a contract last year, Pant finds himself bumped up to A category.

Rishabh Pant has been awarded a Grade A contract after missing out on a contract last year. Murali Vijay, who had an A contract last year, is without one for the upcoming season. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Shikhar Dhawan have been shifted from an A+ contract to A. These were some of the major decisions taken by the BCCI's Committee of Administrators (CoA) as they announced the annual player retainership for the year 2018-19.


The contracts indicate the progress that players have made over the last year, which saw some favourable results for India in the Test format driven by the pace attack. Pant joins the trio of Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav who have been moved up from Grade B to A this time around. Wriddhiman Saha, who missed a large part of the year due to injury, sees himself drop down two categories to C this time around while Dinesh Karthik too drops by one category to C.


Ambati Rayudu, who has cemented a spot in the ODI framework gets a Grade C contract after missing out in the previous cycle. The likes of Khaleel Ahmed and Hanuma Vihari have earned a Grade C contract for the first time while Axar Patel, Karun Nair, Parthiv Patel and Jayant Yadav who all had contracts in the previous cycle have been left out of the current one.


Grade A+ (INR 7 Cr): Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah


Grade A (INR 5 Cr): R Ashwin, Ra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, MS Dhoni, Shikhar Dhawan, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Kuldeep Yadav, Rishabh Pant


Grade B (INR 3 Cr): KL Rahul, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Hardik Pandya


Grade C (INR 1 Cr): Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Ambati Rayudu, Manish Pandey, Hanuma Vihari, Khaleel Ahmed, Wriddhiman Saha


Women's Contracts


Poonam Yadav has earned herself a Grade A contract while Jhulan Goswami, who retired from T20Is before the Sri Lanka series late last year, has been moved to Grade B. Jemimah Rodrigues makes a move up to Grade B, while Veda Krishnamurthy and Rajeshwari Gaekwad have dropped from Grade B to C.


All-rounders Radha Yadav, Arundhati Reddy and D Hemalatha have been awarded a Grade C contract for the first time, while out-of-favour wicketkeepers Sushma Verma and Nuzhat Parveen have dropped out of the list of centrally contracted players.


Grade A (INR 50 Lakhs): Mithali Raj, Harmanpreet Kaur, Smriti Mandhana, Poonam yadav


Grade B (INR 30 Lakhs): Ekta Bisht, Jhulan Goswami, Shikha Pandey, Deepti Sharma, Jemimah Rodrigues


Grade C (INR 10 Lakhs): Radha Yadav, D Hemalatha, Anuja Patil, Veda Krishnamurthy, Mansi Joshi, Punam Raut, Mona Meshram, Arundhati Reddy, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Taniya Bhatia, Pooja Vastrakar

Jadeja unlucky not to be A+ given he goes on most test and limited overs tours. Bit harsh that Pujara is not in A+ neither if even just tests - he's critical to the Indian test team.

I see Krunal Pandya totally missing out again... Yet Pandey and Khaleel get paid.

Pandey getting a contract is a bot of a joke. Strong msg sent to Hardik to start performing better too given he is a multi format player. Also - where is Vijay Sankhar? He shouldn't have missed out altogether. Especially not to Pandey.

Manish Pandey's contract is worth more than Ross Taylor's, Martin Guptill's and about the same as Kane Williamson's.

Jadeja sure showed today that he is not cut to be a man that can be relied on. He is forever a passenger that go through motions when it comes to batting. All of us give too much credit to his batting than he deserve.

Nah - he won you the last game with his Kohli partnership - and you if but maybe Chahal would have bowled better in this one...

It's 1-1 at best as far as I am concerned. Let the debate rage, it will, all the media will be over it... but you lost England with Chahal cos your batting was too short... we all know this...

The biggest passenger is Rayudu. He has performed just once in crisis situation (in New Zealand once), otherwise he is a walking wicket.

Lol - pretty sure he was in a 67 run partnership with Kohli in game 2.

http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/1905 ... nd-2018-19

You only see him scoring 21 runs. I saw him take the score from 6/171 to 7/238.

And that's the point. It's not just the runs he scores, its the fact he can preserve his wicket and give the superior batsman a partner.

You don't need to agree with me. But you lose that game with Chahal batting imo.

Jadeja doesn't need to score match winning 50's, he needs to give Sharma and Kohli a partner in the back end after your middle has collapsed again... Cos the partnership runs are so much more than Chahal will save you in wickets most times.

It’s not a test match where standing there scoring NOTHING won you matches. Duh!

You call it a PARASITE if you depend on someone else to score in a limited overs match.

I don't know what any of this is meant to mean.

6/171 to 7/238. Facts.

It is what it is. Partnerships make runs. Once the tail folds - there's less runs to be had.

It's that simple.

It's not simply how many more runs does one player score than the other - but what it the partnership result of those runs?

And that's what matters - esp last bat before the weakest of tails...
