The impact of T20 leagues on international cricket is taking its full shape. With new T20 tournaments coming up, the players are ready to leave their international careers for the sake of money on offer.
Jason Roy has decided to terminate his central contract with England to play for Los Angeles Knight Riders, a franchise owned by the owners of Kolkata Knight Riders.
The Major T20 League will be played in the United States of America, and IPL franchises have invested heavily in it.
Roy, who recently played for KKR in IPL 2023, is the first player in the history of cricket to accept such a deal for one tournament.
According to Daily Mail, he will be paid INR 30.69 crore for two years.
The right-hand batter has been a big hit in the shortest format of the game. He was sensational for Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan Super League 2023.
