Sanju Samson, after all these years of being in and out of the Indian team, is now finally a centrally contracted BCCI player. The board revealed the annual list and there were several changes that one could notice.
Apart from Sanju Samson - Deepak Hooda, KS Bharat and Arshdeep Singh also earned their maiden contracts. All of them have been placed in the Grade C Category and will earn a remuneration of INR 1 crore.
Another thing to notice here is the retention of Shikhar Dhawan. He doesn't play Tests or T20Is, and as far as ODIs are concerned, he in no longer even part of the squad, but he is still a contracted player and that should come as good news for Gabbar's fans.
