Amid all the controversy going around with national cricket coach Anil Kumble resigning after his tussle with the team skipper, a new report has emerged where Kumble had submitted a 19-page report, to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which was dominated by remunerations.

According to a PTI report, Anil Kumble had asked for 60 per cent of the skipper’s estimated earnings. He also supported earning of national team coaches from Indian Premier League (IPL) which aids their income and should not come under the conflict of interest. Recently, former member of Committee of Administrators (CoA) Ramachandra Guha had raised issues about national coaches earning from IPL.

Anil Kumble suggested a salary hike of Rs 7.5 crore from Rs 6.5 crore. He also mentioned in the report that national coach should be eligible for 30 percent of his salary as variable bonus on team performance which indicates proportionate increase in income of the coach and the captain. Kumble also highlighted that fitness standards should vary 20 percent of the retaining fees of central contracts given to the men’s team.

The report suggested increase in batting coach Sanjay Bangar's salary to Rs 2.25 crore from Rs 1 crore and fielding coach R Sridhar should fetch around Rs 1.75 crore from current Rs 1 crore with effect from June 1, 2016.

A BCCI official told PTI, "While a lot of issues are pertinent but even his proposal on IPL is contrary to what Guha had written in his letter. If we go by what Guha had written, what Anil had demanded is a clear case of 'conflict of interest."

BCCI had doubled the player retaining central contracts fees for men’s cricket team in each category for FY18. The Grade-A players would receive Rs 2 crore, Grade-B will get Rs 1 crore and 50 lakh each for Grade-C. The players and coach were unhappy with the hike and demanded contract wages competitive to what the Australian and English players got. The board had then announced more cash rewards for the players and the coaching staff.
