Another example of how franchise leagues are becoming a threat to international cricket has been seen. Australian cricket team’s Test captain Pat Cummins was recently offered a big offer to play by India’s franchise league, which was turned down by Pat Cummins. According to the information, Pat Cummins got an offer of about $ 1 million.
According to a Fox Sports report, this offer was made to Pat Cummins by an intercity league in India. Pat Cummins had turned down this offer saying that he has to spend time in international cricket for Australia, so he cannot play the franchise league.
Let us tell you that on the lines of IPL, now different states are organizing leagues here. Now all these are trying to include international players in these leagues as well, for which auction and trading are being tried. This is the reason why Pat Cummins was also given such an offer.
In this report, Pat Cummins said that these opportunities are very big, which offer you big money. But at the moment playing international cricket for his country is the biggest priority for him, we cannot take it lightly.
It is worth noting that already players from many countries are leaving their teams and playing franchise leagues. At present, franchise leagues are going on in different countries, recently T20 league has started in South Africa for which auctions were held. In this, many international players have bid for crores of rupees. However, except IPL, Indian players do not participate in any franchise league.
