LPL-2 player draft: T20 World Cup cricketers rewarded

Ravin Wickramaratne, member of the LPL Governing Committee said, “We have to look at it positively because all the young players who have done well in the T20 World Cup have been rewarded. Picking the players of their choice is totally up to the franchisees. Chamika Karunaratne came from nowhere and he is getting US$50,000, Charith Asalanka is getting US$60,000 as an Icon player, Lahiru Kumara is coming at US$50,000. Who is going to pay so much for a player like Kumara who was paid US$15,000 last year? That’s a big thing for a young player. Those are the plus factors.”
