India’s chief coach Ravi Shastri said that it is important that India’s Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara should remain in the top bracket of the central contracts when the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) finalise the revised deals based on new remuneration structure. Pujara, one of the important links in the Indian Test set-up, is currently in the Grade A of the contracts alongside India captain Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ajinkya Rahane and Murali Vijay.

“All the inputs they have to give us were taken and we are going to factor those in. The FTP, we bounced it off them. Presentations have been made and they are in agreement with the FTP so that they get enough rest. Number of days, I can’t tell you as we have not yet worked it out,” Rai added.
