Ganguly urged that the players must be looked after well as the career of a cricketer is often a very short one. Kohli, Dhoni and coach Ravi Shastri met CoA chief Vinod Rai, CoA member Diana Edulji and BCCI CEO Rahul Johri in New Delhi on Thursday. The central contract of the Indian cricketers already involved a massive hike last season: the Grade A players are earning INR 2 crores annually, twice of what they used to earn earlier. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/sri-lanka-in-india-2017-200807/live-scores/india-vs-sri-lanka-3rd-test-match-184841-summary.html" target="_blank"><b>FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs Sri Lanka 2017-18, 3rd Test at Delhi</b></a> <p></p> <p></p><strong>On recent pay hike for Indian cricketers</strong> <p></p> <p></p> Absolutely. Players should get money. Why not? The Board makes so much money; the players should also get it. When Virat Kohli plays, the entire country watches him. Players should be very well looked after because the span is only 15 years. Not many play for 15 [years], very few play for 20. So I am a big supporter of that. The BCCI does that. If you look at the way the players are looked after these days, it's phenomenal. I have actually seen the entire circle. When I played in 1991, for the entire trip in Australia, I got paid Rs 30,000, and when I finished in 2013, I could see the drastic change. It's in every profession. <p></p> <p></p><strong>On the cramp scheduling and upcoming FTP</strong> <p></p> <p></p> Virat is the captain. If he sorts the issue out it will get done. I don t see much problem there. Before going on tours, I think they should clear it out. It isn t difficult to sit down and talk about this and clear things. All the players are playing well. They are all hitting centuries. Virat is in top form. So it s okay, let them play.
