Former India batsman Rohan Gavaskar on Wednesday said that just like the BCCI, all the State Cricket Associations should also look forward to giving annual contracts to its players.

His suggestion comes as domestic cricketers are yet to receive their payments from the BCCI. Gavaskar has suggested that the State Associations should ensure the well-being of the players. “All-State Associations should have annual Contracts with their players like the BCCI does with the Indian team. A,B,C categories. If State Contracts are not there then it is impossible to make payments to domestic players in such a situation”, tweeted Rohan Gavaskar.

Rohan Gavaskar also emphasized that it is impossible to give domestic cricketers their due if there is no annual State Contract in place. He also said that nobody can determine how many matches a player has played if the situation is bad due to the Pandemic.

“How does one can determine who would have played the entire season? Could some senior players have been dropped in the midway? What about the youngsters who may have made their debuts? Will, they do not get anything? What happens to the White ball specialists? The red ball specialists”, tweeted Rohan Gavaskar.

Gavaskar concluded by saying, “the state associations need to look after their players. The domestic players are the ones who really keep the game going. They have to be taken care of. Start annual contracts for them”.

Rohan Gavaskar is considered a stalwart of Bengal Cricket. In his career, he has played 117 first-class matches & 126 List A matches. In his first-class career, he amassed 6,938 runs at an average of 44.19 with his best score being 212 not out. Rohan Gavaskar has also played 11 ODIs for India in which he managed to scored 151 runs & scalped one wicket also for India.
