Feature Who gets paid what in cricket Are Indian players the world's best-paid cricketers? And where does cricket stand among other sports in terms of player remuneration? These are some of the key findings from figures collected by ESPNcricinfo in a survey of central contract salaries and match fees around Cricket report world.

The figures are based on international cricket, and do not take into account player earnings from T20 leagues, other domestic engagements or endorsements. The pay figures in this piece do not include the various bonuses players Cricket report paid for wins and individual performances.

Factoring all those in might shuffle the rankings, but that is likelier to happen at the top of the list. And if anything, it will increase the disparity in earnings between top and bottom.

What is crystal clear is that the richer cricket has become, the more inequality it has bred. That, you might say, is a modern truism of the game, but as the calendar is being fundamentally reshaped by domestic T20 leagues and the riches they offer players, the magnitude of that inequality should serve as a clear warning to the international game.

In most cases salary figures and contract details are not made available publicly; the information in this article, culled from their contacts by our correspondents from around the globe, strives to be as accurate as is possible.

How much each players gets, however, is calculated based on the number of matches they play. The ECB pays the following approximate amounts according to player contract grade: This payment, however, is linked to Cricket report obligations each player fulfils, and so varies from player to player.

It is also not clear whether this is an additional payment on top of each retainer, or whether it is factored into the retainer amounts. The BCB does not pay any money from its commercial rights earnings to its players.

Because of the different ways in how commercial rights are distributed across the globe - or not - the total earnings figures you see can only be close approximates. Four divisions, not two We know that a clear divide has grown in cricket between the Big Three and the rest, the haves and the have-nots.

What the total earnings figures show based on the top-earning player in each countryhowever, is that there are actually four segments: Indian riches Don't be fooled by the central contract figures. But the total payout an Indian player gets is a combination of his contract money and a percentage of the BCCI's gross revenue, calculated on the number of matches he has played in one calendar year.

If you factor in his earnings from the IPL and multiple individual endorsements it ends up making him probably the richest cricketer in reality. Still, India's contracted players are unhappy with their latest, upgraded annual retainers.

In the new pay structure model presented by Anil Kumble to the BCCI in May, while he was still coach, he had argued the team should get a share from the board's media rights.

That discontent is additional fuel for those - including the Lodha Committee, incidentally - who feel India needs to establish a players' association. A raw deal for Pakistan? They won the Champions Trophy in June, were the No.

Let that sink in Ireland's top salary retainer is also higher than those of Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. A player like Sarfraz Ahmed, Pakistan's captain, will end up earning more in a year, of course - and he quadruples his base salary in - because he plays more often and plays across three formats.

To some degree the low retainer is compensated by a more generous match-fee structure that elevates them to a mid-ranking side in terms of pay.

But Pakistani players will argue their plight is compounded by a lack of access to the richest domestic league in the sport, or an especially bountiful payout from the PCB's commercial rights.

The cost of running an excessively vast domestic calendar is another drain. The PCB earns revenue comparable to West Indies, New Zealand and Sri Lanka, and so the vast differences in retainer amounts between Pakistani players and those representing those three countries stands out: Kane Williamson, Jason Holder and Angelo Mathews all make double, or nearly double, what Sarfraz does on their retainer.

Sarfraz makes up for it with his total earnings, but such a system puts intense pressure on the player; an injury in Sarfraz's case is of far greater harm monetarily than it is for Mathews, Williamson or Holder.

Like with India, the case for setting up a Pakistani players' association has never been stronger. India has 32 centrally contracted cricketers and Pakistan, with 35, has the largest pool in cricket.

By bringing more players into the net, they bring to the game a greater semblance of equality in itself the fact that these two countries are also the two largest, population-wise, among the cricket nations, plays a role. By contrast, England has an man central contract list and Australia a man one.

West Indies pay more to their players than Pakistan but they contract only 15 players. Sri Lanka is an interesting case.
