Why MS Dhoni Is Getting Less Paid Than Virat

The latest A+ category is introduced by none other than former Captain MS Dhoni and current Captain Virat Kohli. The A+ category would have only players who play all three formats and players who are in Top 10 rankings.

Now since Dhoni has retired from Test Cricket, he was happy to get a pay cut and give a fair sum to those who deserve it.
