How do these figures fare compared to the general population?
What would a KFC manager get for example?
Middle management probably earns 500. Most people are on less than 200. General hands are getting less than 100. 300 is decent for a young kid in the current environmental. $1400 is a very good salary in these conditions. A national contract is putting you on a CEO package . It’s messed up.
I agree that national players should get above and beyond a CEO. That pretty much the case anywhere really in sport. CEO of a smaller organisation anyway.
Cricket is a global sport competing against some teams where the lowest paid individual is still a millionaire.All the Indians would be millionaires, as well as most Aussie and Englishmen at least. Even the West Indians would be up there as most are IPL stalwarts.
You can’t compare It to the dire local situation.

These guys only have 10-15 years to earn their money and they have to make the most of it.
All our guys will be forgotten outside of this forum when in their forties (has anyone heard mainstream cricket talk about Ray Price lately?) They need to make bank and get pussy while the suns still shining for them. Even our best aren’t world class.

I don't think any squad lists have been released either.
I'm not sure we're missing much over the next week, there's rain forecast. Having said that, today was supposed to be overcast and raining, but its been very cool and reasonably clear.

But....
These middle of the road guys.
The losers by international standards but consistent performers in the Logan Cup, Maruma etc, are on fair wages if middle management is 500. He would be getting double that.

If he thinks he can do better, lol he can try. Will look forward to him and Warner Finch opening the batting for Australia in a few years.

Heard they postponed the start to next week. Don’t know how true this is. Apparently they still sorting out logistics.

Problem is Christmas is around the corner and our guys love a good holiday. Don’t see any of them being keen to be stuck in a bubble during Christmas but the job is the job .

Thought Kolk had been turned down by all the franchises?

Logan Cup has been moved back a week to allow for covid tests. Will now start on the 9th.
