Abstract

The paper presents an economic model of interaction between cricket boards, players and international club-line games sponsors like ICL or IPL. It attempts to capture the inherent conflict between such games and country-line games traditionally organized by cricket boards. It identifies the nature of various trade offs facing these ?players' in the game and examines the effects of market-size changes on the composition of players, the scale of country-line and clubline games and the welfare of players and cricket boards. --
