new Delhi. Virat Kohli, Pat Cummins may suffer big losses: The IPL 2020 has been pushed ahead due to Corona virus and the BCCI is considering conducting it a few months later. The BCCI is now looking at organizing this for between July and September. If this T20 league, which is full of money, could not be done despite this, then a loss of around 10000 crores is expected in total. If IPL 2020 was to be canceled, many players including Virat Kohli and Pat Cummins would suffer long losses.
Players get crores of rupees during this T20 league. This is why cricketers from all over the world are eager to play in this league. Many players are not able to earn as much money as they have achieved during this league even after playing for their country all year. Let us tell you about the five players who will suffer the most if not IPL.
Indian captain Virat Kohli is the highest earning player in IPL history. If IPL 2020 is not done then they will lose Rs 17 crore. In 2018, Royal Challengers Bangalore gave more than 2 crore rupees more than the maximum amount of Rs 15 crore to retain them. Since then he gets 17 crores of rupees every year.
Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins created history during the IPL 2020 auction when he became the most expensive selling foreign player in the league. Even if the IPL happened, Pat Cummins is finding it difficult to play in India because the Australian Government has banned the Level Four travel. Under this, anyone has been banned from going out of the country. Despite this, many Australian players are keen to play in the IPL.
Former India captain MS Dhoni has not played a match since the World Cup semi-final held in July 2019 last year. He is scheduled to return to competitive cricket during IPL 2020. If IPL is not done then Mahendra Singh Dhoni will also lose Rs 15 crore. Dhoni's return to the Indian team is also considered to be dependent on his performance in the IPL and if this league is not done, then this opportunity will be out of his hands.
Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma also gets Rs 15 crore for a season of IPL. Mumbai retained him for Rs 15 crore in 2018. He joined Mumbai Indians in 2011 and under his leadership, this team has become champions many times. Rohit Sharma was given the command of the team after Ricky Ponting gave up the captaincy. If IPL is not done then they will lose Rs 15 crore.
If not the IPL, then England's all-rounder Ben Stokes will be ranked fifth among the players who have suffered the most. Ben Stokes joined Rajasthan Royals in 2018 for Rs 12.5 crore. Before Pat Cummins, Ben Stokes was the most expensive player in this T20 league as he was bought for Rs 14.50 crore.
