It is very disappointing and embarrassing for the IPL authorities that the players have not been paid, which they truly deserve. If this is the scene, then many players might have to rethink about their plans with other lucrative T20 leagues around the world. Australia, South Africa and England may be their likely destinations, if delayed payment becomes the norm.
Both the players, Sarwan and Simon Katich, have not been paid for the IPL 2010 season. They were part of the Punjab Kings XI team. It’s already been a year or so that the tournament finished, but still they have not been paid. FICA (Federation of International Cricketers Association), which looks after the problems of the cricketers and many other things, wrote to the Chairman of IPL, Chirayu Amin about the matter. There has been no response from the IPL body regarding the payment to these players, as reported by the The Times of India.
It seems to be rather surprising that the board (BCCI), which had promised to deliver the best facilities to the players, has not been able to deliver the most important thing for which it is known across the world, money. If this is the case, it would not help the IPL brand name, as it would keep them in low light. So they have to take appropriate action before it further damages IPL’s image.
