What the prize money in the IPL is!

I got news on the website ‘The Australian’, the heading was ‘Where the wickets are paved with gold’. Do you think which wickets are warped with the precious metal gold? It is nothing but India. There is nothing to say newly about Indian cricket. Recently BCCI inaugurate Indian Premier League (IPL). The prize money is too high than any cricket matches. The players who have relation with IPL are earning a lot of money from the tournament. The payers who are playing well in the matches are getting more money. So it is totally a game of money.

The Australian wrote:

At least two of the Australians have earned $3000 or more per run scored. And it didn't matter what sort of run. A nice cover drive and an ugly outside edge were equal in the eyes of the benevolent bean-counters.

Ricky Ponting went for a relatively modest $400,000 when sold at auction in February to the Kolkata Knight Riders, a franchise so wealthy its pads, gloves, helmets and God knows what else appear to be plated with gold.

The Australia captain was no doubt a little put out to learn his trusty all-rounder Andrew Symonds was bought for $1.35million by the Deccan Chargers, but did not complain too loudly.

In the end, Ponting has emerged as the highest paid Australian batsman when earnings are worked out on a rupees-per-runs-scored basis.

I just have quote these three paragraphs. If want to know more you can visit that site.
