IPL: Players yet to receive full payment

Delhi: Feb 7, 2013

The Indian Premier League (IPL) has been hit by yet another controversy as some of the former players of the defunct franchise Kochi Tuskers have admitted that they are yet to receive their full payment.   
 
According to Vimal Kumar’s report in IBN7, Kochi Tuskers haven’t paid 35% of what is due to its former players, including Sri Lankan spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan.
 
“Yes, I have not been paid by the Kochi Tuskers Kerala. When you don’t get paid by a franchise after such a long time it is always a concern,” Muralitharan said.
 
A key member of the Australian Cricketers’ Association also admitted that the “Kochi Tuskers Kerala’s payment is a concern”.
 
According to the report, Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings are two of the most professional IPL franchises as far as payments of players are concerned. On the other hand, teams like Deccan Chargers, Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore do not enjoy a good reputation among the players for matters of payment.

While the Kerala team hit controversy only after one year in the big league and is now defunct, former India sinner Maninder Singh believes that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) should take up the responsibility to ensure that the players get their dues on time in the future and not be manipulated for payment by the franchises .
 
“Why doesn’t BCCI take care of such matters? All the money to the players can be routed through the BCCI. In this scenario, franchise will have no scope to manipulate the payment to the players,” he said.
