The Australian Big Bash league is another very popular one compared to the IPL. It has had a big fan following all around the world. The Indian players are not allowed to join as they are not released by the BCCI. However, when the likes of Ben Stokes can warrant a sum of 14 crores, how much would our stars fare?
Rohit Sharma is a superb opening batsman and can also lead any side to the top thanks to his overall performance. Sharma would easily go for any amount between 8 to 10 crores in the Big Bash League and will be one of the top billings at the Big Bash.
Kohli is easily the best batsman in the world when he is in full flow and he will probably get the highest price should he play. Kohli will go for anywhere between 14 to 18 crores in the Big Bash League and will captain his side too.
Dhoni is one of the greatest T20 players of all time and is also a popular attraction anywhere that he goes. If Dhoni was allowed to play in the Big Bash League, he would command a big sum, but maybe not as big as Kohli. Anywhere between 9 to 12 crores for the former Indian captain is perfect.
Raina is one player who has been out of the international setup but there is no doubting his ability when it comes to the T20 format. He has one of the best records and is a superb all-round option who can contribute a lot on the field too. He will easily get around 7 to 9 crores in the Big Bash League.
A genuine all-round option who can contribute on the field as well, Pandya is an excellent T20 player, as his big-hitting ability could come in handy anywhere. Pandya is relatively young and could go for 5 to 8 crores in the Big Bash League.
Jadeja is another all-rounder who has shown that he can be a valuable asset for any team that he plays for in the shorter format. Jadeja is an excellent fielder too and in the fast pace of T20 cricket, he could prove to be the vital difference. He could get around 6 to 9 crores in the Big Bash League.
The Indian fast bowler has been immense over the past two years, picking up two purple caps in the IPL and going on to become a genuine T20 bowler. He is an excellent death bowler and could go for anywhere between 4 to 7 crores in the Big Bash League.
Bumrah is another top-draw when it comes to fast bowling and he is an excellent asset thanks to his ability to bowl Yorkers. Bumrah is a superb bowler and could go for anywhere between 3 to 6 crores in the Big Bash League.
