 Saurav Ganguly who has been recently appointed as the President of the BCCI mentions that the first-class cricketers in India will be placed on the basis of a contract system.

The action will be taken by the BCCI at the earnest and that the financial health of domestic cricketers was the main focus and an increase in fee will also be made for their match fees. Ganguly wants to bring forth a secure and structured payment system similar to the annual central contract for country’s top international cricketers.

We will bring in a contract system for first-class cricketers. We (office-bearers) will ask the new finance(sub) committee to prepare a contract system,” Ganguly said

It’s just been four-five days and in between, there was a Diwali break. It will take about two weeks to assess everything and move forward. There is a lot of work going on,” the BCCI president said

Depending on the matches a player plays a domestic cricket player earns around Rs 25 to 30 lakh. Also, the match fee for the first-class game is Rs 35000 per day ( excluding the daily allowance). The domestic cricket players get 13 percent distribution amongst them from the gross revenue earned by BCCI through broadcast rights.
