The conclusion of the BCCI Apex Council Meeting has turned out to be contrary to the initial speculations suggesting that Team India’s performance in the T20 World Cup 2022 will be reviewed after their disappointing performance. The apex council meeting didn’t discuss senior men’s team performance. The council will rather wait for the formation of the new selection committee and will leave the discussion to them to decide the future of Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid in limited-overs cricket.

The members of the BCCI discussed the status of two of their leading sponsors – Byju’s and MPL Sports, as per a report in Sportstar. The board has asked the ed-tech company to continue the sponsorship until March 2023 whereas MPL Sports will likely assign its rights to fashion brand KKCL.

On the other hand, Hardik Pandya will be getting a huge promotion in the central contract. The 29-year-old is currently part of Group C but as per reports, the IPL-winning skipper will be promoted to Group A, along with Suryakumar Yadav. Youngster Shubman Gill might get promoted as well.


Players who are currently playing all three formats of the game will be receiving the A+ category contracts while icon players and players who feature only in white-ball cricket will be a part of the A category. Meanwhile, other Test or white-ball cricketers will be part of the B category and emerging players will find themselves in the C category of BCCI’s new central contract.

BCCI is using it for more than a decade now and thus, the secretary was authorized to take the process forward and reward Jayadevan for his contribution.
