From what he saying, it sounded like the local players, signed the most owner friendly contracts(payments over a longer duration, so some of them might have to wait another 5-6 months to get their full dues).

But as everyone knows by now, the BCB/BPL governing body has cash deposits from all the franchises as security in case they don't meet their obligations. And there is an official procedure for players to deal with this issue. So in the final analysis - NO ONE will go away from BPL-1, without getting their full payment.
That's great news indeed. In fact when i first heard about the kind of money thrown about to buy players at the auction i was surprised at first but then felt a sense of pride too. This tournament showed that even though we are not as big as india, our private sector is still no pushover.
