New Delhi: The head of Committee of Administrators (COA), Vinod Rai, on Wednesday termed his discussion with Indian captain Virat Kohli a "fruitful one" and promised to address their concerns regarding central contracts.
The former CAG made it clear that the COA doesn't need "any intermediary" between the body and the players.
Rai and another committee member, Vikram Limaye, met Kohli and a few Indian players in Hyderabad to discuss the central contract issue.
When asked if the next hike in central contract would be based on Kumble's presentation, Rai replied, "That I can't tell you right now but like we doubled the retainership fee for the 2016-17, we would certainly work on it again. The players interest will be kept in mind."
The COA also met BCCI office bearers Aniruddh Chaudhry and Amitabh Chaudhary to discuss about operational details of IPL.
"Both the office bearers have promised total support and co-operation for smooth running of IPL."
