    How much money do cricketers make??

    Hi Guys,
    I am new in this forum. Do you guys know how much money do cricketers make in terms of match fees/retainer fees and sponsorships.

    I know how much the BCCI (supposedly the richest) pays its players. How much do the other cricketing boards pay their players.??

    Not as much as football stars, but yes, they make reasonably good money.

    new zealand's contracts are based on performance and whether you play tests, odi's, or both and other factors. the highest paid is about $120,000 retainer and then it goes down until the 20th contracted player who gets paid $40,000. this isn't including match fees or sponsorship.

    Only Ricky Ponting, Glenn McGrath and Shane Warne would get that and possibily Adam Gilchrist.

    I guess there is a lot more money in the game then there used to be a few years back. Its time that the game is nurtered and turned into a global entertainer. Imagine the US putting up their 11. what do you guys think??
