[Image: prv_1520428101.jpeg]

Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah have been named in the newly introduced A+ bracket of BCCI pay grade for the season 2017-18. India's all-format bowling specialists join seasoned performers Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan in the top category and will earn INR 7 crore as their annual retainer for the year.

Cricbuzz understands that pacer Mohammed Shami, who was missing from the 26-member list made public by BCCI on Wednesday (March 7), was excluded due to certain reports that have emerged relating to his personal life. Shami's name was in the initial list prepared by the BCCI but his name was withheld at the last moment pending verification of the reports that came out. He may very well be included at a later stage, if the BCCI sees it fit.

Apart from the newly introduced Grade A+, BCCI has ensured a massive pay hike for the remaining grades. Cricketers under the A bracket, who previously used to earn INR. 2 Crore per annum, will now earn INR. 5 crore, Grade B cricketers will earn INR 3 Crore - a 2 Crore increase from the previous season, while the Grade C cricketers' pay has been hiked by 50 percent and they will now earn INR. 1 Crore per annum.

For the Women cricketers, the BCCI has introduced a new category - Grade C; cricketers under this bracket will earn INR. 10 Lakhs, Grade B cricketers will earn INR 30 Lakhs while Grade A players - which include Mithali Raj, Jhulan Goswami, Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana - will earn INR. 50 Lakhs per annum.

2.A [INR 5 crore]: MS Dhoni, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Wriddhiman Saha, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane,
