The bidding price is ‘all-inclusive’ whereas a player has to sign a separate contract, which includes special clauses, based on his performance, fitness, conduct, and availability for the season. If everything is followed well by the player, then he may get around 75 – 80% of the bidding price, and the rest gets shared between the BCCI + the Franchise.
