IPL 2022: CWI confirms the participation of all West Indies players in the cash rich league

Just a day after the completion of the IPL 2022 Mega Auction, CWI said that it has dedicated a special window for the IPL 2022 & declared that all the Windies players will be available to participate in the cash-rich league. The IPL 2022 will be played between March end & May end.

“The CWI has allocated a window for the tournament each year in their ICC FTP and also guaranteed this to the players in their retainer contracts, therefore West Indies players are fully available to participate in the IPL each year. The IPL 2022 is slated to be played in April and May,” the board said in a statement on Monday (February 14).

Total 14 West Indies players were picked up by the IPL franchisees during two days of the auction along with three retained players. The number of West Indies players picked up during the IPL 2022 Auction makes up for the largest number of foreign players in the cash-rich league from outside India. Including the three retained players – Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, and Andre Russell – the combined value of the West Indies players in the IPL is the whopping US $10,855 million (over Rs 81 crore).

Congratulating the players being picked by the franchise, CWI president Ricky Skerritt termed the IPL as the biggest league in the world. “I want to congratulate all of the West Indies players who have secured contracts to the various franchises in the IPL, which is the biggest and most lucrative global T20 franchise tournament. But I especially want to applaud those younger players who received their first full IPL contracts. This shows great faith in emerging West Indies talent. I continue to believe that our players can seek quality employment abroad, and still be positioned to operate constructively and successfully within the West Indies cricket system,” the CWI President said.
