Now, even without playing Test and ODI matches, cricketers will be able to get contract from BCCI. The BCCI has changed the rules of the central contract. According to the news of Indian Express, now cricketers who have played at least 10 international T20 matches can also get board annual contracts. Earlier, players were required to play ODIs or Test matches to get an annual contract from the board.
Earlier, the board rejected the proposal in which the Committee of Administrators (COA) constituted by the Supreme Court had asked to give weightage to the players who have played T20.

It was necessary to play the first three Tests or seven ODIs
The policy of the board was earlier that any player who plays an international match in a season becomes a part of the central contract system of the board. However, the COA had amended this rule and it was now decided that players would be required to play at least three Tests or seven ODIs to get the contract. However, as an exception in the last season, the board awarded a contract to Washington Sundar, which was awarded by the board for its consistent performance in T20.

7 crores annually in A + category
According to the new rules, if a player has played at least 10 matches in a year, then he can get a central contract from the BCCI. A source said that if a player has talent, he can be denied Central contract because he has shown his performance in T20 format matches, so the board has changed the rules. BCCI contracts male players in four categories; A +, A, B and C. In this, players of A + category get 7 crore annually, A category players get 5 crore, B category players get 3 crore and C category players get Rs 1 crore annually.
