Since a few years ago, franchise T20 cricket has posed a danger to international bilateral series. According to recent sources, such risks have intensified during the past few days.
Top Australian internationals have been in contact with representatives of various Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises regarding a one-year contractual term, according to the Australian daily The Age. According to rumors, some of Australia’s top cricketers, including Test captain Pat Cummins, Glen Maxwell, and David Warner, might receive as much as $5 million. The claimed amount would be more than twice the value of Cummins’ existing annual contract with Cricket Australia, even though he is now the highest-paid cricketer in Australia. Many IPL teams are wanting to tie down players for the year so they can play for the other teams they own in different franchise leagues all over the world, which is the purpose behind these long-term contracts. For instance, Kolkata Knight Riders are the owner of the Los Angeles-based team in the soon-to-be-announced American franchise league, the Trinbago Knight Riders in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), the Abu Dhabi-based team in the newly formed UAE International League, and the Trinbago Knight Riders in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

The six teams in the new SA20 league in South Africa are all owned by IPL franchises, while other organizations, including the Mumbai Indians, have also acquired shares in franchises in the league in the United Arab Emirates.
However, players who voluntarily sign an annual contract with a franchise side will still need to present a No Objection Certificate from their respective international cricket boards.
