Caribbean Premier League Players Salaries 2023 | CPL Salary 2023

The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) has quickly established itself as one of the top Twenty20 cricket leagues in the world since its inception in 2013. Organized by Cricket West Indies (CWI), the CPL brings together the passion for cricket across the Caribbean islands into an electric six-week tournament each year.

The CPL follows an exciting format where each of the six franchise teams – Barbados Royals, Guyana Amazon Warriors, Jamaica Tallawahs, Saint Kitts and Nevis Patriots, St Lucia Kings, and Trinbago Knight Riders.

Teams play the others twice in a double round-robin for a total of 10 matches per team. The games take place at stadiums across the Caribbean, from Barbados to St Kitts to Trinidad.

After the regular season wraps up, the top four teams advance to the knockout playoffs. The playoffs add to the drama and excitement as the semifinals narrow the field down to two teams vying for the CPL championship title in the finals.

Fans flock to the stadiums and tune in on TV to follow superstar players from across the cricket world. The CPL has attracted top internationals like Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Rashid Khan, Andre Russell and David Warner. Local Caribbean players also get the chance to test their skills against the sport’s elite.

The whole tournament unfolds over six weeks in the late summer, typically August and September. This timing allows CPL to fully harness the Caribbean’s party spirit.

Caribbean Premier League Players Salaries 2023

The Caribbean Premier League instituted a player salary cap system that creates distinct pay categories, leading to significant variance in how much players take home each year.

At the top are the elite marquee players who can earn over $130,000 for the season by being one of the franchise’s designated marquee players. This category is reserved for the superstar internationals or West Indies players who attract fans and attention.

On the next tier are the international and regional franchise players who sign contracts worth around $70,000-$100,000. Franchises recruit these proven performers to form the core of their squad.

The bottom tier is occupied by the emerging local players who earn anywhere from $5,000 to $30,000. These players still establish themselves in the league while benefiting from the chance to share the field with the sport’s best.

On average across all players and tiers, a CPL cricket player earns approximately $45,882 for their season’s work. With squads capped at 20 players, this puts the CPL’s total salary cap at around $4.68 million per franchise.
