IPL players payments not done, brings bad image to IPL
IPL players such as Sarwan and Simon Katich have not been paid for their participation during the IPL 2010 season. The case has been forwarded by FICA to BCCI, but the BCCI has still not given any..

INDIAN PREMIER League, which is one of the richest sporting leagues in the world, came into being in the year 2008, where people turned millionaires overnight. Hence, many players began to dream of playing in the cash- rich IPL. Recently, IPL has come to the forefront, as players such as Sarwan and Simon Katich are said to have not received their money for which they had signed the contract to play in the IPL.

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.
