T20 cricket has come up the ranks over the years. It’s become a source of income for a number of players and a source of entertainment for fans across the globe. Even as Test cricket has often been in danger of going into oblivion, there has been no stopping the 20-overs format.
Over the years, most cricket-playing nations have come up with their own set of star-studded T20 leagues. The tournaments have had loads of money involved. So much so, that at times, the players put aside their stints in the international circuit and play in the global T20 leagues.
The cricket boards also make sure that the good performers get their rewards for doing well. It goes without saying, that the winners get the most money. But the winners’ prize isn’t quite the same in all the T20 tournaments.
In the article, let’s rank the top five T20 leagues by the winners’ prize money
