BCCI is also giving importance to the domestic cricket as recently in the new annual contracts, their matchday fees have been raised from INR 10,000 to 35,000.

Meanwhile, former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly believes that the domestic players deserve more even after the new annual contracts. He recently quoted, “I think that is very commendable from Rahul (Johri) and the Board. And as he said I have been harping for it for the last one-and-half years, increase the money for first-class players. I would still request him (Johri) to increase a bit more, because they are first class players, a lot of them will not become Ajinkya Rahane’s and Virat Kohli’s.”
