Within the high-profile world of the Indian Premier League (IPL), where lucrative contracts and extravagant deals frequently dominate headlines, a less visible issue persists. Former Indian cricketer S. Sreesanth recently highlighted the unresolved financial dues owed to players by the now-defunct IPL team, Kochi Tuskers Kerala.

In a frank disclosure, Sreesanth revealed that several cricketers, including esteemed figures like Muttiah Muralitharan and Mahela Jayawardene, are still awaiting their rightful dues from the franchise. Despite repeated promises and reassurances, these players find themselves in a state of uncertainty, grappling with the challenge of reclaiming the money owed to them.

“They have to pay a lot of money. You should get Muralitharan sir (Muttiah Muralitharan), you should get Mahela (Jayawardene) and in your show they will only tell you no one has got (money),” claimed the former cricketer on The Ranveer Show Podcast with Ranveer Allahbadia.

Sreesanth also highlighted the sudden conclusion of Kochi Tuskers’ involvement in the IPL, leaving the players to bear the financial repercussions of the team’s dissolution. He urged the team owners to honour their commitments, as BCCI must have already paid them the due amount.

“I urge you all, BCCI must have paid you by now. Please honour your commitments to us, even if it means paying with an 18% interest rate annually. The team was meant to last three years, but it was terminated after just one year. I believe this issue deserves more attention,” Sreesanth added.
