The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) rewarded Yashasvi Jaiswal with a bumper central contract deal as the young opener got his annual retainership contract for the first time in his career. The 22-year-old was handed a B category contract instead of C, which is generally handed out to players in their maiden year of international cricket.

As many as 30 players were handed central contracts on Wednesday for the 2023-24 season. On a day when the BCCI cracked the whip by terminating the contracts of Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan for their reluctance to play domestic cricket, young guns like Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rinku Singh, Tilak Varma, Ruturaj

Gaikwad, Ravi Bishnoi, Jitesh Sharma, Mukesh Kumar, Prasidh Krishna, Avesh Khan and Rajat Patidar received their maiden central contract deals.

Athletes who meet the criteria of playing a minimum of 3 Tests or 8 ODIs or 10 T20Is within the specified period will automatically be included in Grade C on a pro-rata basis, according to the BCCI.

Yashasvi Jaiswal, who has played 8 Tests and 17 T20Is since making his debut in July 2023, has cemented his place at the top of the batting order in both formats. Only on Wednesday, Yashasvi achieved his career-high Test ranking of 12, leapfrogging Rohit Sharma, in the ICC Rankings for Test batters.
