Ex-CSK star suggests IPL players could earn Rs 100 crore sans purse cap.

The highly anticipated Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 is on the horizon, bringing with it the excitement of cricket's most lucrative tournament. Teams have finalized their squads, with some opting for continuity while others splurged on big-ticket players in last year's IPL 2024 auction. Notably, Australian stars Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc fetched record-breaking amounts, crossing the Rs 20 crore mark as they joined SunRisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders, respectively. This marked the first instance of players breaching the Rs 20 crore threshold in IPL history.

Discussing the potential for astronomical salaries in the IPL, former Indian cricket team player Robin Uthappa weighed in, suggesting that in the absence of a salary cap, as many as ten Indian players could command over Rs 100 crore. Currently, each of the ten IPL franchises operates within a purse limit of Rs 100 crore. Uthappa elaborated on the players he believes could fetch such staggering sums in an open auction scenario. Among them are marquee names like Jasprit Bumrah, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, KL Rahul, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill, and Yashasvi Jaiswal, all of whom boast exceptional talent and market value in the cricketing world.

Having represented various IPL teams over the years, including Kolkata Knight Riders, Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore, and Rajasthan Royals, Uthappa brings a wealth of experience to the discussion. He was also part of the historic Indian cricket team that clinched the inaugural T20 World Cup title in 2007, further solidifying his stature as a respected figure in the sport. As anticipation builds for another thrilling IPL season, Uthappa's insights shed light on the potential financial dynamics and star power that characterize the league.
