Domestic players should get more money – Laxman

Domestic players should get more money - Laxman

VVS Laxman agrees with both Ravi Shastri and R Ashwin when it comes to pay structure for players in Indian cricket.

“I had given the proposal to HCA six-seven years back,” said Laxman, who is currently mentoring Sunrisers Hyderabad. “Every time a new regime comes (in state association), I give a presentation on how to improve the quality of cricket and also how to look after the players. In England, counties have contracts and the domestic players benefit a lot due to that. I also had a contract with Lancashire.

“The contracts are very very important nowadays because jobs are not easily available for domestic cricketers as it used to be 10 years back. The contract system is an incentive for the parents as well. It’s like `if my son is part of the Ranji team, he gets some fixed sum regardless of his final place in the team’. Domestic players should also get more money.”
