Cricket means scoring big, breaking records, bowling hard and batting relentlessly!
It is a sport that is right in the league of soccer and American football especially when one considers the entertainment side of things. It is also a sport that gave birth to the franchise-based game structure where the actual capabilities of a cricketer are revealed. If one is a hardcore cricket fan then it is evident he or she has already figured out what this post will try to enunciate in the following sections.
Lasith Malinga – 160,000 dollars
Lasith Malinga is the famous Sri Lankan cricketer who is often described as a living legend and for the right reasons. He has a record of capturing 4 wickets from 4 consecutive deliveries – a record that was once secured by Sir Viv Richards. According to several critics, Malinga changed the face of Sri Lankan cricket and is often described as the best thing that happened to the Sri Lankan cricket team after Aravinda de Silva.
So how much was he paid when he was Caribbean Premier League?
Well, it is best to keep in mind that Malinga represented the Guyana Amazon Warriors, the Jamaica Tallawahs, and the St Lucia Zouks thus it is evident that he will be one of the highest-paid players in CPL. To put it into perspective, he was paid a whopping 160,000 USD during CPL thus making him the perfect candidate for this post!
Alex Hales – 160,000 dollars
Hales represented England’s Under-19 squad way back in 2008 and toured New Zealand. At that time, he also scored three half-centuries!
In the following years, he carved up a niche for his name in the world of T20 cricket as a specialist. He is also known for his dicey techniques that always targeted the place outside the off-stump. Apart from participating in the Caribbean Premier League, he also participated in the Big Bash League as one of its prominent players.
Hales has a stunning record of scoring 89 runs from 52 balls when he was playing in the Big Bash debut that took place at the SCG. During the 2019 CPL, Hales became one of the top gainers as he bagged USD 160,000 when he was picked immediately after the 1st round!
