The new formula will be discussed with the men who matter, coach Ravi Shastri and captain Virat Kohli.
The top players saw their annual basic deals doubled to 3,00,000 United States dollars this year, but have demanded more after observing the increased revenues of the BCCI in connection with the Indian Premier League between 2018 and 2023.

As per reports, the players have been demanding a hike in their salaries since the BCCI's revenue has increased following the recent Dollars 2.5 billion Indian Premier League (IPL) broadcast deal with Star India.
