Since the start of their revamped cricket calendar for the 2020-21 season, the Indian team has completely astonished everyone with the kind of a voyage they had to reach towards their new horizons. A gobsmacking triumph in Australia, followed by a dominating home Test series win against England along with some strenuous grind to clinch the limited-overs leg in itself justifies why the Indian team is now hailed as the best in the world.
However, to manifest such triumphing times, recently there have been some new set of individuals who with their consistent vigorous performances have elevated the overall strength and stature of the Indian team and surely are the future heroes on whom the team will massively depend upon.
Overall, with a massive blooming and development being happening inside the Indian dressing room, some individuals are now bound to receive an elevation in terms of their salary for the upcoming season.
Here are five Indian cricketers who can expect a better salary for the forthcoming season:
1. Washington Sundar
Ever since Ravindra Jadeja has been injured, Washington Sundar has been the constant player who has not only undertaken his role meticulously but perhaps has emerged as a match-winning hero during the toughest of adversities. Whether it was his unexpected Test debut in Australia where he first scalped three crucial wickets followed by highly valuable innings of 62 in the first innings or his late sturdy contribution during India’s historic run-chase at Brisbane, playing Washington Sundar was a masterstroke that helped India to rewrite history in Australia.
His skills to undulate adversities were yet again witnessed during the fourth Test against England when he played a match-winning inning of unbeaten 96 eventually helping India to qualify for the WTC final. Overall, prior to the start of the season, Washington Sundar was hardly an established cricketer across formats but with his recent heroics, he has now emerged as a vital bridge between India’s batting and bowling inside the playing XI.
At present from BCCI’s current contracted list, Washington Sundar’s earnings currently make him a member of the Grade C contract which eventually yields him a total of 1 crore. Now normally the Grade C category does comprise of players who are the new entrants of the Indian team but with Sundar now being the regular member of the side across formats, it will be highly anticipated to see him transpire into Grade B. Therefore, with his upsurge, Sundar can then find himself in the company of Hardik Pandya, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, etc.
