England cricketers set to lose £4MILLION as IPL is suspended indefinitely due to coronavirus outbreak – The Sun

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.
