The Indian Premier League will start again on 19 September and the Mumbai Indians will be looking to defend the title they won last year. The defending champions only have three players in the top 10 highest-paid players in the league, with a variety of clubs making the list and shelling out to make sure they have the best stars.
£1.6m per year is the highest wage in the list, which is almost £100,000 more than the player in second place, so the league is highly lucrative and can thus attract players from across the world. Here are all the figures you need to know, approximate and as reported by Salary Sport.
7: Manesh Pandey, Sunrisers Hyderabad – Suresh Raina, Chennai Super Kings – Hardik Pandya, Mumbai Indians – AB de Villiers, Royal Challengers Bangalore, and Lokesh Rahul, Punjab Kings – £1,078,000 per year
It seems just over a million per year is a sweet spot in the IPL with five players sharing the amount they are paid at joint seventh in the list.
All five are huge stars, particularly South Africa’s AB de Villiers who has been involved with the league since it started in 2008.
6: David Warner, Sunrisers Hyderabad, and Sunil Narine, Kolkata Knight Riders – £1,225,000 per year
David Warner began his time at Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2014 and he has played for them ever since, apart from the 2018 season due to the ball-tampering scandal.
This season he was replaced as captain by Kane Williamson.
While Sunil Narine has starred for the Kolkata Knight Riders since 2012 and has won two titles with them.
5: Glenn Maxwell, Royal Challengers Bangalore – £1,396,500 per year
India international Krunal Pandya has played for the Mumbai Indians since 2016 and he’s won three IPL trophies with the club.
So far in the 2021 IPL, his behavior has caught the spotlight more than his cricket with his passion overflowing. He was seen throwing a moisturizer bottle at Anukul Roy during a match against the Rajasthan Royals.
Glenn Maxwell was at the center of a bidding war ahead of the 2021 season with the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings battling to buy him.
The Challengers won out and it’s clear to see why they fought for him as he has had an impressive IPL career since he started in the league in 2012.
