BCCI cracks the whips

Following the disastrous World Cup performance and under public pressure, the BCCI has appartently taken some tough decisions:
1. Match fee for One-dayers reduced from the current 1.6 lakhs to 1.0 lakhs
2. No more contracts
3. For the first time performance based pay system will be followed
4. Only 3 brand endorsements per player per year. ( This is definitely following the huge public hue and cry over the Advertisement contracts and the huge monies that the crickters make out of it - apparently at the expense of their performance on the field)
The one sane decision taken by the BCCI is to scrap the Zonal selection system, which for a very long period now, has been the bane of Indian cricket.
