IPL Players Contract & Salary structure – Explained
- The BCCI pays a percentage of whatever a player earns to the player’s home board, in Cummins case to Cricket Australia.
- Players are paid in 3-4 instalments over 12 months for playing the full IPL Season
- In case player gets injured while playing the IPL or during the camps, player still gets paid in full.
- As per the players contract if for some reason the organizers (BCCI) can’t complete the full season – still the player gets paid in full.
- In case, player doesn’t make himself available for the full season – he gets paid only on PRO-RATA basis i.e for the number of matches he has stayed with the team during the IPL Season. This is the clause, due to which IPL players who can’t make it to the UAE leg will have to let go of their salaries
