IPL 2024: 5 Players Who May See Big Salary Cut In IPL 2024 Auction. The Indian Premier League is the wealthiest league in the world. Not only due to the pomp and show but also because of the enormous monetary advantages provided to participants. Cricketers from all over the world register to participate in the auctions of these cash-rich leagues in order to get large pay-outs.

The IPL not only provides large sums of money but also provides players with a reputation and notoriety in the world of cricket, which is a boon, particularly for uncapped Indian and international players.

Every year, we see several players earn large sums of money that neither they nor we expected. Nonetheless, it has been seen that athletes who were sold at very high rates performed poorly throughout the tournament and returned to their basic costs the following season. The best example is Yuvraj Singh, an Indian batsman who was paid 15 crores by the Daredevils in IPL 2015 but failed miserably that season.

Here are some players who received a hefty sum of money in the IPL 2023 auction but were unable to produce enough to justify that money. They might see a big salary cut in IPL 2024 auction.

Sam Curran began his IPL career with CSK in 2018 under the leadership of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. His performance in the previous year will result in a significant salary drop in IPL 2024 auction.

Nicholas Pooran

Nicholas Pooran, a West Indian wicketkeeper batsman, was purchased by the Lucknow Super Giants for Rs. 15 crore. Pooran’s overall performance was average, but it wasn’t enough to warrant his large salary. Although Pooran scored only 358 runs in 14 matches with an average of 28. Pooran’s compensation may be reduced in future auctions as well.

Harry Brooks

This English sensation created quite a stir in world cricket during the IPL 2023 auction. Resulting Sunrisers Hyderabad have paid Rs 13.5 crore for Harry Brook.
