Now it is about the 10 %

English cricketers IPL sojourn is taking on melodramatic proportions.

According to the deal struck between the England and Wales Cricket Board and the Professional Cricketers' Association a fortnight ago, the players have to return 10 per cent of their auction price to their county clubs.

Now most of the English cricketer’s are wondering why they should pay the 10% when no other cricketer is doing so anywhere in the world.

According to one calculation, Andrew Flintoff could be looking at handing over the best part of £50,000 just for missing one four-day game for Lancashire.

For all their disdain for IPL’s filthy lucre, the English cricketers drive a hard bargain.
