MS Dhoni dropped from BCCI's central contracts list

Mahendra Singh Dhoni was on Thursday dropped from the BCCI's list of centrally contracted players, raising fresh doubts on the future of the former India captain who has not played since the World Cup semifinal loss to New Zealand past year. The players slotted in Grade A+ category are bound to receive INR 7 Cr while the ones grouped in Grade A category will be receiving INR 5 Cr.

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.

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

While Dhoni has not played any professional cricket since the World Cup, India coach Ravi Shastri has said a few times that Dhoni could throw his name in the ring for the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year if he does well in the IPL.

The future Hall of Fame wide receiver who will turn 37 in late August, is returning for his 17th National Football League season. Teammates wanted him back, too, though nobody seemed totally certain what his final decision would be.

Since the World Cup, he has missed the tour of the West Indies and the home series against South Africa, Bangladesh, the West Indies and the ongoing one against Australia. "He has finished his Test career, he may soon end his ODI career".

Captain Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah are grade A+ players.

Five new players have been added to the contracts list.

The BCCI announced the central contracts for the period of October 2019 to September 2020.
