Aakash Chopra has questioned Ravindra Jadeja’s absence from the list of players who have been placed in Grade A+ in the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) annual contract list.
Jadeja represents India across formats, with his stature growing in international cricket. As a result, the left-handed all-rounder was given a Grade A contract.
Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Jasprit Bumrah are the three players in the highest Grade A+ list.
In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Aakash Chopra said Jadeja should have been in the top bracket.
“Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah will get 7 crores rupees. I feel why not Ravindra Jadeja? He should have been named in the list.”
He feels Jadeja and KL Rahul will be promoted to the top bracket in next season’s contracts.
“I feel Ravindra will go in the A+ category when the next contract is announced. Along with him, KL Rahul will also be included.”
Aakash Chopra also named Rishabh Pant as another player who deserves to be in the highest Grade.
