BPL pays more than Big Bash. When it comes to players salary.

Money talks in Big Bash-T20 battle

DEAN Jones has warned that the Big Bash will need to substantially increase its player payments in the wake of burgeoning Twenty20 competitions around the world.

The former Australian batsman leaves for Bangladesh this week as coach of the Chittagong Kings in the new six-team Bangladesh Premier League (PBL), which will hold its inaugural tournament this month.

Michael Bevan will be his assistant coach.

Remarkably cricket’s minnows have a salary cap twice as much as the Big Bash, $2 million compared to $1 million.

“They’re going to have to,” Jones said of the Big Bash increasing its payments.

The Big Bash salary cap will remain at $1 million again next season because the new eight-team city-based competition was launched two years ahead of schedule.

Cricket Australia will lose at least $24 million over two years on the revamped Big Bash but expects to get all that back and more from a new television rights deal at the end of next season.

in BPL: The best priced Australian was Brad Hodge at $140,000.

Other Australians were Brad Hogg and Stuart MacGill, who each went for $50,000, although MacGill has since withdrawn because of “auction irregularities.”



Did not know MacGill has withdrawn from BPL.

Chris Gayle I think is getting paid 8 times what he will make in the South African T20 league for playing in the BPL.

Azhar replacing Macgill. Does it mean Afridi may still play in DPL.

Bevan must have fond memories of Bangladesh. Does anyone remember his jaw dropping innings of 185* playing for Rest of the World XI against Asia XI in Dhaka? Barring the famous Aus vs. RSA encounters over the years, it was the best limited overs match I've ever seen.

P.S. :O I just realized that Shamim Chowdhury was a commentator in this match. Crazy...
