New Delhi: Test stars Ravindra Jadeja, Cheteshwar Pujara and Murali Vijay were on Wednesday rewarded with Grade ‘A’ category of the BCCI annual contracts, the amount of which has been doubled to Rs 2 crore from this season while middle order batsman Suresh Raina failed to figure in the list.

The trio joins Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ajinkya Rahane in the top category of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) contracts. Former skipper Dhoni has retained his place in Grade A despite retiring from Test cricket.

While Jadeja has been promoted to Grade ‘A’ on the back of his sterling performances with the ball in the ongoing home season, Raina and veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh have been omitted.

"The match fee enhancement will be effective from October 1, 2016 and Rs 15 lakh per Test, Rs 6 lakh per One-day International (ODI) and Rs 3 lakh for T20 International will be paid," the BCCI said in a statement.
