So are those amounts sound enough in terms of WI standard?

You know Reifer is considered a developing player.....

I find the amounts for C and D players not enough as far as the contract goes. A player at best can build a career of 20 years, earning at different grades, depending on the situation. Very few will be able to pinch into the main squad in this 20 years time period - say with all changes and substitutions a total of maximum 70 of them. But probably prize money and local and international pro-contracts will add a plenty.

Good luck to full strength WIndies. Are they going to Australia soon?

Chanders, Gayle, Sarwan, and Big Bravo are the only A rated players.

Reifer, The Smiths, and Tino Best are D rated. That's all I know.

Good to hear that the drama is coming to an end.

WI and world cricket needed it badly.
