They have a short life span. “A first-class cricketer can play for 10-15 years at best.”
Ravichandra Ashvin continued.
“If there are contracts, the players have a starting line-up, because not everyone starts broadcasting or training. Unlike in the past, there are not many government jobs or even corporate jobs. The state contracts of your top 20-25 cricketers are very important, and the way those contracts are used should also be standardized. ”
Ravichandra before Ashwin, a former Indian bat VVS Laxman:also supported the contract system of First Class players. According to Laxman, native cricketers can be corrected if they get injured and lose their income. In a conversation with Sportstar, he expressed an opinion.

It is very possible that the contract will be handed over, because what happens to the player if he is suddenly injured? “Suddenly there is no income for that player. If that player does not have a job, how is he going to take care of himself and his family?”
Last year at their AGM, BCCI: offered a compensation package for native cricketers, but the same is still being planned.
