BPL is a world renown Cricket league on T20 formats and after a few years of absence its back again in Bangladesh soil. As the exciting tournament returns, it’s time to see how players are gonna be paid since there are still few players who didn’t get paid properly in last BPL.

Thus to avoid that, BPL took a very interesting route and what they did is gave each player a category from A-D and fixed the amount of money that player will get for his grade. Its a very innovative way. Lets, first look at the fact how many players applied and the rest of the information.

Bangladesh Player –

ICON – 06

Grade A – 16

Grade B – 36

Grade C – 43

Grade D – 21

If we take this by their position then we see –

Batsmen – 62

Bowlers – 45

All Rounders – 15

Total players – 122

Now lets take a look at foreign players from different country who were willing to play in BPL –

  • England – 53
  • Pakistan – 53
  • Sri Lanka – 25
  • West Indies – 34
  • Zimbabwe – 6
  • Australia – 4
  • South Africa – 4
  • New Zealand – 2
  • Others – 15

Now lets take a look at the pricing that the BPL Committee has set for both local and international players.

Local Players –

Range –

  • In BDT – 500,000/= to 3,500,000/=
  • In USD – $6,500 to $45,500

International Players –

Range –

  • In USD – $30,000 to $70,000

Grade Wise –

  • Grade A – $70,000
  • Grade B – $50,000
  • Grade C – $40,000
  • Grade D – $30,000

However, if a franchise wants to buy a specific player then they can offer more money for the move but BPL will take a written consent that they will only assure safety till $70,000 USD or the highest their grade approves. The access amount will be paid by the franchise and the BPL Committee will not take responsibility if the money is due.

However, some report says that Shakib Al Hasan already signed this and will get much higher that the money he would have. The owners of the club said that, He is a world class player and he is worth much more than the money BPL Committee is giving and that’s why they made a new contract. From international side, Sahid Afridi, Chris Gayle and Sangakara signed papers for their extra pay as well.
