Venkatesh Iyer’s salary hiked by 4000 percent

The retention list for IPL 2022 is out. Almost all the franchises have retained their core players except Punjab. Several teams also took some shocking decisions. At the same time, the salary of many players has increased significantly. Kolkata has increased the salary of all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer by 4000 percent.

Venkatesh turned from star to superstar

This time the Kolkata team is retaining Venkatesh by paying eight crore rupees. A season ago i.e. in the last season, KKR had bought Venkatesh for just Rs 20 lakh. After this, he was seated in all the matches in the first phase of IPL 2021. When he came on the field in the second phase, his bat wreaked havoc on the runs.

Venkatesh did a great job last season

Venkatesh scored 370 runs in 10 matches at a strike rate of 128.47 and an average of 41.11. This includes four fifties. Apart from this, Venkatesh can also bowl. His performance confirmed his place in Team India’s T20 squad. This is the reason that even after playing only 10 matches in the league, his fees have increased 40 times.

Umran and Samad’s salary increased

Venkatesh is not the only such player. Whose fees have increased so much? Sunrisers Hyderabad all-rounder Abdul Samad and fast bowler Umran Malik’s salaries have also increased. The Sunrisers franchise has retained both by paying Rs 4 crore each. Till last season, Samad was getting 20 lakhs and Umran was getting 10 lakhs.

At the same time, Samad will get 20 lakh to 4 crore rupees i.e. 20 times more salary next season. The special thing is that both the Kashmiri players are still uncapped. This means that both of them have not got a place in Team India till now.

Rituraj and Arshdeep’s salaries also increased
