How much money will Babar Azam get
Babar Azam’s playing in this league will not only be good for the team but also for the brand value of this league. But now the question is that how much money will Babar earn by playing in this league. As far as last year’s figures are concerned, according to Wisden India’s report, if the players bought before the pre-draft i.e. draft are placed in the International Ruby category, they get $60,000. If this rule remains in force, then Babar will also get the same price. If this amount is converted into Indian rupees, then Babar will get about 50 lakh rupees.
International Ruby is the highest category of this league and looking at Babar’s stature, he is sure to be placed in this category. This team can also make Babar their captain.
