I can also tell you that nobody from the board was. I also happen to be the convenor of senior selection committee and no meeting was called. I won't sign (on the contracts) if they come to me," Choudhary told PTI. <p></p> <p></p>Edulji countered Choudhary s claims saying the selectors indeed met on Saturday and graded the players. <p></p> <p></p>We wrote to the BCCI finance committee three times (first time in October and latest this January) but did not get a reply. Now the players insurance was also coming up for renewal so we had to go ahead with the contracts, said Edulji. <p></p> <p></p>I can also tell you that the selectors met on Saturday and the gradation was done only by them, she added. <p></p> <p></p>Off-spinner Jayant Yadav and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/karun-nair/">Karun Nair</a> bagging a contract despite not playing for India for a year raised eyebrows while someone like <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/rishabh-pant/">Rishabh Pant</a>, who played for India on Tuesday, was excluded. Even Shreyas Iyer, who is a contender for World Cup berth. <p></p> <p></p>A new A+ category was introduced for India players who play all three formats while C category was added for the women cricketers. The five players in A+ category including captain <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/virat-kohli/">Virat Kohli </a>would gets Rs 7 crore each while the players in A, B and C categrory Rs 5 crore, Rs 3 crore and Rs 1 crore respectively. MS Dhoni was named in A category as he doesn t play all formats. <p></p> <p></p>The BCCI officials and COA have been at loggerheads of late as implementation of Supreme Court-backed reforms keeps getting delayed further.
