Can't see how Sharma gets into the A+ category.

I think Kohli must have had a say in that he wants his best player in all formats. I doubt if Sharma will have an A+ contract next year.

Well, he shouldn't have had one this year, but he still did.

I didn't want to create a whole thread for this but an instant classic in the Nidahas Trophy final. Karthick hitting a last ball six with 5 to win on his way to an 8 ball 29.

India needed 34 off the last two overs.

Wow! Thanks for sharing. It is remarkable then if such players remain grounded when they make it big in cricket. Also, Indian cricket is filled with lots of such stories who did not really have a happy ending in that they just couldn't make it to the Indian team.

I wish him the very best!

That's an interesting point, outside of the IPL how much do Indian FC cricketers get paid roughly?

These days, it has improved for our cricketers reaching the Ranji trophy stage. You go one level below that and the struggle starts. In short, unless and until you can get into either an IPL franchise or a FC team, you are going to struggle having cricket as a profession.
