How the money is paid to the IPL players? [duplicate]


Kochi Team[edit]

The BCCI and the IPL Executive Committee has ruled that the Kocchi Tuskers will no longer be a team. Shouldn't that be reflected on the page?

IPL table[edit]

This page need not read like a reading board of what all is controversial about IPL. We can have a seperate page for that. What we really need here is a table listing the winners and runners up for every year with the location, number of teams etc. Let this page look like the EPL or the NBA page please.

DLF has only been assigned sponsorship only for the tournaments for a period of 5 years. So this sponsorship isn't applicable for the entire marquee in general. Even for coming seasons,the tournament would be called DLF Indian Premier League purely for formal and sponsorship reasons. So please keep the name of the tournament as it is now. Also please do not remove entire (especially the lead section) entirely. If you have certain objections to the content please discuss it...

No cricket player looks forward to a string of zeros. However, the players of the DFL Indian Premier League Twenty20 had huge grins on their faces as the zeroes were strung on like pearls in an endless necklace.

Cricket is on a winning streak, with the Indian Premier League raining big bucks, fame and glamour. IPL has elevated the game to a new high and the rules of the game have been rewritten forever.

Cricket has always attracted big amounts of money in India. But post-IPL, it is set to enter levels never thought possible.

The player’s auction was a huge sale with no discounts. There were eight franchises from Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Mumbai, Jaipur, Kolkata, Mohali and Delhi. These franchise owners, most of whom are billionaires, spent over $718 million between them to get the team rights. Each team was allowed to register a maximum of eight foreign players, only four of them will be able to play in the XI.

Big money was spent by the franchises...

Indian Premier League season 9 will be getting underway in April after the T20 world cup in India. The player draft and auction has taken place and all 8 teams have their 2016 squads ready. IPL is a “sports brand” which is on the up considering how far the domestic indian T20 league has come in less than 10 years. Financially it is the most lucrative T20 league in the world by far for both players and the participating teams.

Although small potion from TV rights deal money and small percentage from central pool makes up the yearly prize money fund. Which is distributed according to how the teams finish. We take a look at Indian Premier League...

Kochi Tuskers Kerala's controversial stint in the Indian Premier League lasted barely a year. But during their one-season appearance in the IPL, the owners of the franchise indirectly ended up playing catalyst to the dramatic exit of Lalit Modi. It was a saga that involved allegations of threats and intimidation, a curious case of a reprimand that wasn't, and led to the downfall of the former IPL chairman and the resignation of a federal minister.

In its inquiry report, the BCCI's special disciplinary committee, which was appointed to probe charges against Modi, details the alleged irregularities that he committed from the time the IPL's governing council approved the draft of the Invitiation to Tender (ITT) in December 2009 - for adding two more teams to the league - to Modi's eventual suspension in April 2010. The case of Kochi's entry into the IPL constitutes three of the eleven charges pressed against Modi - rigging bids, arm-twisting franchises and bringing the BCCI...

We look at the number s and speak to Afridi and Ramiz Raja on the potent ial of the Pakist an Super League


Pakistan Super League (PSL) inaugural edition will kick off on February 4 in the UAE, where five teams named after the four provincial capitals; Karachi (Sindh), Lahore (Punjab), Peshawar (KP), Quetta (Balochistan), and one team named after the federal capital Islamabad will take part in a 20-day long tournament.

There is no doubt that the PSL project will take the country’s talent to new heights and can only be described as a win-win for the cricket obsessed nation. However, the obvious comparisons to the most successful cricket league, the Indian Premier League (IPL), can’t be avoided largely due to the intense rivalry between the neighbours.

The Express Tribune took a look at the key differences between the PSL and the IPL, including target audiences, pay scales for cricketers and other interesting aspects.

Cricket has been rocked by an alleged betting scam but how much do top class cricketers earn?

Big hitter: England's Kevin Pietersen makes a tidy sum - but many Test cricketers are paid much less

In a world where the sports pages are dominated by diamond encrusted footballers, many people imagine all professional sportsmen to be on easy street.

That makes events such as the alleged betting scandal involving members of the Pakistan cricket team even harder for some to understand.

But many may also be surprised at how much some of the cricketers playing in the select few Test-class cricket teams earn, compared to perceptions of what a top-class professional sportsman makes.

For example, did you know Pakistan's players are on roughly the UK average wage?

Despite failing to come even close to their football playing counterparts earning power, the members of the England cricket team do much better. The central contract system is understood to...

DLF Indian Premier League (IPL) is mix of entertainment and Twenty 20 cricket. The marketing and revenue models of IPL also make an interesting business case study.

Q: How did the idea of IPL Twenty 20 Cricket originate?

A: It all began with the formation of Indian Cricket League (ICL) by media baron, Zee group’s Subhash Chandra to counter BCCI’s strength in Indian cricket. The ICL had senior players from all cricket playing nations (most were nearing retirement) and young budding cricketers from different parts of India.

To take advantage of the growing popularity of Twenty-20 cricket, BCCI and Lalit Modi conceived of an alternative cricket tournament, with the backing of ICC, built on the larger pattern of the English Premier League.

The idea had all the ingredients to be a success – top cricket players of the world, cricket crazy Indians having a perfect viewing experience in summers/ holiday season during prime time TV, presence of Bollywood...

Yes, we know IPL involves big money. Yes, we know that Kolkata Knight Riders as a team has one of the strongest brand values in the IPL. Yes, we know that Virat Kohli is the highest paid cricketer in IPL 2016. But do we know how the IPL economics actually works?

A lot of thought process goes into the kind of investment and money flow we see in one of the most talked about tournaments in the world. The team owners are smart enough to know the pitfalls and have become wiser with every passing year.

The amount paid to the players are based on their availability for the matches. If a player was available for all the IPL matches, then that player is eligible for the full amount. If the players were not available for some matches, then they are paid on a pro-rata basis.

In the above case, Ponting and Maxwell were available for the entire season. Missing a match due to injury or benching is not considered as unavailability and hence they should be getting the full amount. There was a rule that if a player was available for a certain no of matches and misses only a certain no of games, they should be paid the full amount. Not sure if this rule is still there.

Also note that the amount offered to the players vary based on certain other criteria as well. For eg:- if the team didn't qualify for CL, players will get only 80% of the auction rate. Players also might get some % of amount if their team wins the IPL or finishes at 2/3/4. However there is no clarity on this and...

Chris Morris was in the Kimberley dressing room with his Lions team-mates on Sunday morning. Little did he know he was sitting on a diamond mine.

Across the Indian Ocean, the IPL auction was taking place. Morris was one of the outsiders, with a base price of just US$20,000. That is the equivalent of R177,000 - which can buy a mid-level new car in South Africa.

Interested to see if he would be picked up by any team, Morris and some of his team-mates turned on an iPad and watched the action unfold live on this website. Three franchises bid for Morris - the Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings and the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Super Kings' bid reached US$95,000 and then Mumbai upped to US$100,000. Gordon Parsons, the Lions bowling coach, "grabbed the iPad away from me and saw that it was up to 100,000," Morris told ESPNcricinfo. "He said, 'Good going, that's a fair amount of money.'" But that was not all.

Mumbai soon doubled the amount, then Chennai raised,...

When the Indian Premier League (IPL) arrives here next week, its gilded stars will think nothing of booking dinner at Reflets par Pierre Gagnier and ordering whatever they fancy on the menu.

Until they get their break in the IPL, though, the majority of cricketers would just be happy to get a table at Ravi’s in Satwa.

For six weeks, cricket’s leading players get to live like the stars of other world sports.

Top-bracket Indian players earn about US$200,000 (Dh734,000) annually from their basic central contracts from their national board, or about $15,500 per month.

For the same amount of time in the IPL, Yuvraj Singh, who fetched the highest price of any player in the most recent auction, will earn $1.5m – 100 times more.

It is not far behind the stars of other sports. After his lucrative summer transfer, Gareth Bale reportedly earns about $2m per month playing football for Real Madrid.

Virat Kohli is the highest-paid cricketer in the IPL, according to salary figures released by the league on Friday.

While Kohli will cost his franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore Rs 12.5 crore (approximately USD 1.89 million) from their salary purse, they will actually pay him Rs 15 crore (USD 2.26 million). MS Dhoni, for long believed to be the most expensive IPL cricketer, will be paid USD 1.89 million, which is equal to his purse deduction, by the Pune franchise. Pune secured Dhoni in a draft of players who were part of the suspended Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals franchises.

Apart from Royal Challengers, who are paying Kohli and Chris Gayle more than the purse deduction, Mumbai Indians are paying Harbhajan Singh, Lasith Malinga and Ambati Rayudu more than the purse deduction they result in.

However, contrary to the general perception that quite a few players used to get paid much more than the official purse deduction, quite a few have...
