BCCI hikes Shikhar Dhawan’s salary by 1300%

The Board of Control for Cricket in India has increased the salary of Indian cricketer Shikhar Dhawan by 1300%, earning a retainership fee of Rs 7 crore up from Rs 50 lakh last year.

Dhawan has finally been upgraded to the newly introduced Grade A+ from Grade C.

Meanwhile, the BCCI has also upgraded Rohit Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah to Grade A+ from Grade B (Rs 1 crore) last year. They will now earn Rs 7 crore each.

The board, however, dropped Indian pacer Mohammad Shami and all-rounder Yuvraj Singh from its annual contracts list.

Shami, who had secured a Grade B contract last year and is a regular in the Test squad, was recently accused of extra-marital affair and assault by his wife.

Meanwhile, Yuvraj Singh has been out of the Indian squad since July 2017.
