The pay-hike meeting between Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni and COA had to be delayed due to a failure of BCCI to provide Vinod Rai – head of COA – with all the data which he asked for.

Kohli and Dhoni were scheduled to meet Rai on the matter of pay issue. They had earlier met Rai along with Ravi Shastri to discuss the various issues on November 30 before the start of Delhi Test against Sri Lanka.

There was a follow up a meeting which was scheduled, as Rai needed time to study the financial structure and pay structure of BCCI but he hasn’t got a response from the board, which resulted in the follow-up meeting getting delayed.

Reports had suggested if the new pay structure is implemented, then Virat Kohli could very well earn a salary of 12 Crore/year. All the other players in Grade A like MS Dhoni, R Ashwin, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja and Murali Vijay could also earn the same amount.

The report added as per new pay structure; grade B players would get a total of Rs 8 Crore yearly while the amount of Rs 4 Crore was set for Grade C players. Presently, ‘A’ grade players are getting an amount of Rs 2 Crore while Group B and Grade C players are getting a yearly amount of 1 Crore and 50 Lakhs, respectively.

Former India Head Coach Anil Kumble had also batted for an increase in pay of players during his tenure. He had a meeting with COA along with skipper Virat Kohli to discuss the issue of the pay rise and other aspects as well. Though he resigned from the post after the completion of his term and the mater is still pending.

It will be the players and the current coaching team headed by Ravi Shastri which will get the benefits of the new scheme which had been proposed by Kohli, Dhoni and Shastri during their meet with COA on November 30.
