Currently, IPL 2023 is in good shape in India. After the end of half the competition, a big struggle can be seen in the scoreboard. Many famous cricketers are eager to play in this tournament which is the richest professional T20 league in the world. In the background of all this, now an exciting news is coming out. Six England cricketers are said to have been offered an offer to break their annual contracts and play exclusively for IPL franchises.
Currently, many prominent players of England are seen playing in IPL. Both England captains Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes along with Joe Root, Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran and Mark Wood are signed to various IPL franchises. Now some of these same players are said to have been offered by their teams to play for the franchise for a year, breaking the national contract with the national team.
According to a report by a leading Indian news agency, six England players have been offered such offers. In return, crores will be given to the players. The players have yet to respond to the proposal. A few days ago, Australian players were also offered this kind of offer.
Currently T20 leagues are played in many countries around the world. Many IPL franchises field teams in more than one league. For example, the Mumbai Indians franchise plays its team in three other leagues, including the IPL. Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals also have teams in three countries. Some former cricketers had expressed the fear that many big cricketers will quit playing for their country in the future just for money.
