IPL vs BBL: It is no hidden fact that Indian Premier League is the biggest T20 tournament in the world with some of the best players across the globe competing with each other in the marquee event. However, IPL is closely followed by Australia’s Big Bash League which will play its FINAL match of the season on Saturday between Sydney Sixers vs Perth Scorchers.
IPL vs BBL Prize Monies: Well, the basis of the comparison could be many but it won’t be wrong to say that when it comes to prize money or rather the overall money involved is well more in IPL than in BBL.
With the Big Bash League 2021 final set to take place between Sydney Sixers and Perth Scorchers on February 6 at the Sydney Cricket Ground, let’s take a look at the price money comparison when it comes to the IPL and the BBL.
Notably, BBL 2020/21 winner will get AUD 450,000 (Rs 2.45 crore approx). However, IPL is way ahead of BBL in terms of prize money as the winner of IPL 2020, Mumbai Indians earned INR 20 crores (approximately 10 times that of BBL’s winning prize) while runner-up Delhi Capitals earned INR 12.5 crores (approximately 6 times that of BBL’s winning prize).
To put things into perspective, BBL 10 winner’s prize-money is seven times less than the salary of Pat Cummins alone in the Indian Premier League as the Australian pacer has been retained for Rs 15.5 crores by KKR ahead of the IPL 2021 auctions, which is set to take place in Chennai on February 18.
Hence, the gulf between IPL and BBL can be seen by the prize money on offer for the winner and it goes without saying that the Indian Premier League is a global brand and is undoubtedly one of richest sports leagues in the world.
