The BCCI is not ready to accept any reduction and we want to figure out a way which is a win win for all member boards,” CoA chairman Vinod Rai said after the meeting.Also, Rai has assured that issue of salary, raised by head coach Anil Kumble and captain Virat Kohli, will be addressed too, but after the IPL.”I had a long meeting with Virat and Anil. They said this was an issue and we will sort it out. Anil came up with a presentation and I have assured that we will get back on this once the IPL is over.”There were no salary hike in the last six years but this time, we did raise it. Now again, if players have a problem, we will address it. We don’t give credence to someone calling pay hike peanuts..we don’t need advocates,” Rai said, referring to a remark made by Ravi Shastri.
