Two players of the Indian women’s cricket team are climbing the central contracts for the upcoming season’s cricketer’s ladder. The BCCI has declared that Deepti Sharma and Rajeshwari Gayakwad would be elevated to Grade A category in the central contracts.

Deepti, 24, has been a fantastic all-around option for India in recent years, while Gayakwad, 30, has been awarded the highest contract for her remarkable performance. Both of these cricketers will join Harmanpreet Kaur, Smriti Mandhana, and Poonam Yadav in the A grade contracts, which pay INR 50 lakh a year in the retainer. Grade B and C contracted members, on the other hand, are guaranteed INR 30 lakh and INR 10 lakh, respectively.

During the BCCI’s Apex Meeting on March 2, the BCCI approved 17 players for central contracts, including Sneh Rana, who was awarded a Grade C contract, and Pooja Vastrakar, who was given a Grade B contract. Vastrakar’s contribution to India in recent years has been significant, and she has added to it by taking on the position of finisher for the team following her return.
