  • MS Dhoni held a Category 'A' contract in the previous cycle viz. 2018-19

Senior Indian cricketer MS Dhoni's name did not figure in the annual player contracts announced by the Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) on January 16.

Dhoni, who has not played since the World Cup semi-final defeat to New Zealand in Manchester, was in Category A previous year. He had been awarded a Grade A contract, which brings a retainer of INR 5 crore, in 2019.

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. This move by BCCI raises more questions about the future of the former captain.

Dhoni's contract not being renewed is not a huge surprise considering he hasn't played a competitive game since the World Cup semifinal on July 9 2019. The trio of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah has been fitted into the Grade A+ category, who will receive INR 7 Cr.

India's first-choice Test wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha has been slotted into the Grade B category along with Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Hardik Pandya and Mayank Agarwal.

The contracts, from October 2019 to September 2020, are in four categories - A+ (Rs 7 crore), A (Rs 5 crore), B (Rs 3 crore) and C (Rs 1 crore). Others to lose contracts were Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik and Khaleel Ahmed.
