I was quite surprised that it was sold in such an amount which is less than $ 400,000. He said, "But if you see how much money he was getting in the role of Rajasthan Royals captain last season, don't be surprised if his hamstring gets stretched on the day he leaves for India." Clarke said, 'For the eight-week tournament and in 11 weeks' time, given the segregation before the tournament starts, I don't think he would be asking his family and wife for 11 weeks' time for Rs 2.2 crore. Will stay away Before this season, Smith's salary was Rs 12.5 crore per season.
