Sue the IPL!

Interesting Starc is suing an IPL franchise for $1.5M in missed contractual payments due to injury.

I've been aware for some time that the biggest issue for IPL players is actually getting paid those lucrative contracts. It's the subcontinental way to avoid paying if you can, it's considered very good business, and if they get away not paying you it's your fault for providing them the opportunity!

Oddly, if you are a contract member of the BCCI test squad, as opposed to any other foreign player, I believe your IPL payments are guaranteed.

I'm not sure how that form of discrimination flies legally?

IC, my bad I should have checked the written articles before I posted, I should know better than to trust radio.

Even so I understand the contract anomaly still exists, if you are BCCI contracted test player to get paid even if you don't play an IPL game! I'm not sure it's restricted to test players either, I've heard a rumor Dhoni gets guaranteed payments from the BCCI to sit out of IPL in the lead-up to ODI tournaments!
