New Delhi: The Indian Premier League (IPL) is expected to resume its second leg from September 17 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). According to England cricket team general manager Ashley Giles said England players will miss the IPL as they want to give their players some rest.
But a new report from Inside Sport confirms that overseas players who miss the tournament will face a prorated pay cut. Just to give perspective, if we take the example of Ben Stokes who earns 12.5 crore (excluding tax), will be entitled to a salary of 6.25 crore rupees.
“Yes, that’s correct, in case they (the foreign players) cannot make it to the UAE for the IPL, the franchises will have the right to reduce their salaries and pay them only to PRO-RATA,” he said. said a BCCI official at Inside Sport.
Under the current rules, if a player makes himself unavailable for a season, he will only be paid pro rata, that is, only for the matches he has played with the team. This is the clause that will be cited to lower the salaries of players absent from the rest of the IPL.
It was earlier reported that England players will miss the IPL as they have a streak to play against Pakistan starting in mid-October and their players would need a rest period. England Managing Director Ashley Giles said: “We’re going to have to give some of these guys a break at some point. But the intention to give the guys a break for, say, Bangladesh, wouldn’t be. for them to go and play cricket elsewhere. We have to manage our schedule now, so that our guys arrive in the best possible shape for the T20 World Cup and the Ashes. “
Buttler, Morgan, Sam Curran, Tom, Curran Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, Chris Jordan, Jason Roy, Chris Woakes and Sam Billings are part of IPL.
