Salary derived from this theory
All the world's sports leagues are contracted for the whole year. The player plays in the same league in one year. Right now, the contract for IPL is only for seven weeks. The player who plays in the IPL is free to play for the rest of the world in other cricket leagues of the world. Therefore, in the Global Sports Salary Survey, the first seven weeks of IPL contract year has been converted into the amount of contract yearly. After this, average salary per player per match has been removed.
All IPL teams in top 64 are available
In this survey, the average salary of 349 teams of the top-18 league of eight different sports in 13 countries of the world has been extracted. In this, all the eight IPL teams are in top-64.
