Cricket Australia’s premier T20 league BBL is hogging the headlines ever since David Warner expressed his desire to play in the new cash-studded UAE league.

Meanwhile, CA is ready to offer a lucrative contract to Warner to keep him in BBL.

To add to CA’s woes, the UAE T20 league is ready to sign 15 Australian players for a lucrative offer of more than $700,000 a year for the inaugural edition of the tournament.

The local young players have also turned against CA for offering lucrative deals to foreign talents while ignoring the homegrown players.

The BBL stars have written a letter to the board seeking clarity over why overseas players would earn more than them for playing half the tournament.

The stars said, “Why do overseas players earn over $340,000 for three weeks and we earn half the amount for the entire competition.”

Thus, for CA to improve its ailing situation, they need to take drastic measures, otherwise, the UAE league and the CSA’s new privatised league would further impact their revenue.

Faf du Plessis, Dwayne Bravo, and Rashid Khan are some of the names who have given their names for the BBL draft.
