Pay Hike Meet Between Kohli, Dhoni and COA Delayed
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.
