Ravi Shastri may get over Rs. 7 crore a year

India’s newly-appointed head coach Ravi Shastri is likely to be paid between Rs. 7 crore to Rs 7.5 crore per year, according to sources. “BCCI is going to make an offer of more than Rs. 7 crore to Shastri. This is the same amount which (predecessor) Anil Kumble had asked from the board during his presentation in May. But it can’t be more than Rs 7.5 crore annually,” a top functionary said.

Shastri’s earlier package as team director was also between Rs. 7 to 7.5 crore, which included the compensation for skipping media commitments.

Sources also said the core support staff, meaning the batting, bowling and fielding coaches, who are going to work with Shastri, won’t be making more than Rs. 2 crore annually.

“The support staff bracket (batting and bowling coach) won’t exceed the Rs. 2 crore mark. The Board is in the process of finalising contracts as soon as possible,” the official added.
