THE megabucks Indian Premier League has been postponed indefinitely – meaning England stars face a mega £4million loss of earnings.
Ben Stokes was due to be the top British earner on a £1.4million deal with Rajasthan Royals.
He and other homegrown players might not be able to appear if a revised IPL schedule clashes with the end of the reduced English season.
Other big earners include Sam Curran (£590,000 with Chennai Super Kings) Eoin Morgan (£560,000 with Kolkata Knight Riders) and Jos Buttler (£500,000 with Rajasthan Royals).
Altogether, 11 England players were due to appear in the world’s richest T20 event.
A whopping £15million was spent on 62 cricketers in December's auction, around £4m of which went on the 2019 50-over world champions.
The IPL was originally due to start in late March and then delayed until April 15.
But, with India in lockdown because of Covid-19, organisers had no choice other than delay until further notice.
