Former India batsman Aakash Chopra feels that the massive windfall gains to BCCI through the sale of IPL media rights (2023-2027 cycle) could lead to a huge proportionate increase in players’ salaries. He made a big statement about the value of Jos Buttler.
Aakash Chopra on his YouTube channel said that if a team is allowed to spend 200 crores on players, then the value of a player like Jos Buttler for a season can be 30 to 350 crores. If a player gets 30 to 35 crores for two and a half to three months, then it doesn’t matter how much England cricket pays, every player would like to play IPL.
Aakash also said that I am sure that IPL will get a bigger window.
Aakash also said that I am sure that the IPL will get a bigger window and the same will be seen in the future tour plans of the ICC. It is worth noting that BCCI has received Rs 48390 for media rights. The board has sold the rights for the next five years by auction by auction. This includes both TV and digital rights.
Recently, BCCI President Jay Shah has also said that IPL matches will be extended in the coming times. Apart from this, the ICC can also be demanded to increase the IPL window. IPL is the most luxury T20 league in world cricket. Every player wants to play in it. In such a situation, it has to be seen what decision the ICC takes regarding the window.
Jos Buttler had performed a dashing game
It is worth noting that in this season IPL, Jos Buttler had performed brilliantly. He was the highest run scorer and got the Orange Cap. Apart from this, his bat is also scoring runs in international cricket.
