Several leading India and overseas players contracted to Royal Challengers Bangalore, including team captain Daniel Vettori, are awaiting the first instalment of their fees for the 2012 season. Australia allrounder Andrew McDonald is believed to be another player who has not been paid, along with some members of the support staff. The South Africa Cricketers' Association confirmed to ESPNcricinfo that five South Africans had outstanding payments due to them from the Royal Challengers. The South African cricketers on the Royal Challengers roster include A B DeVilliers, Charl Langeveldt and Rilee Rossouw.

Though this is the first season that Royal Challengers have delayed on payments on this scale, the players affected are concerned by the lack of response from franchise officials to their queries. The news comes at a time when the Bangladesh Premier League is in the headlines for non-payment of salaries to its overseas players.

Franchise officials, including team director Siddhartha Mallya, did not respond to repeated requests over several days by ESPNcricinfo for comments on the issue.

The development coincides with the well-documented financial difficulties being faced by the UB group, the franchise owners. Royal Challengers Bangalore are owned by businessman Vijay Mallya through UB Sports Pvt Ltd, a group subsidiary. In recent months, Mallya's airline, Kingfisher Airlines, has been found to be in debt of $1.3b. Recent rumours of the sale of the team's stake have been denied by the UB Group, with a spokesman saying: "There is no question of a stake sale in the Royal Challengers Bangalore team."

The players affected include those from India, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka. It is believed that Chris Gayle, though, has been paid his contracted amount. "Gayle is looked after separately," a Royal Challengers player said.

Under every identical tri-partite IPL contract, signed between the player, the franchise and the IPL, clause 1.a.i (which covers the schedule of payments) spells out the payment break-up: the player receives 15% of his fee for the season by April 1 (before the IPL or early into it), 50% by May 1 (during the IPL or towards its end), 20% after the Champions League T20 and the remaining 15% by December 1. As of today, Royal Challengers has not met this schedule, with several players still owed 65% of the fee owed to them, nor has it provided any explanation for the delay. It is understood the players emailed the management after the season finished in May, but did not receive a straightforward response.

Heath Mills, the chief of the New Zealand Players Cricket Association (NZPCA), said he'd heard about the delay from Vettori on Monday. "It's disappointing that some of the players have not been paid to date. We hope they are paid before this issue becomes more serious. It really isn't right that people are not paid for work they have already completed, and I can't imagine anyone in any workplace environment being overly happy about that."

"Nobody has come back to us, to let us know what is going on," a player said, under the condition of anonymity. "The people, at the moment, are in the dark. Normally there are one or two cases of delayed payments that we have seen in the previous seasons."

Some players are known to have written even to the Royal Challengers' head coach Ray Jennings, who was unavailable for comment. The players just want to know what the problem is; a clear response will leave them much more comfortable. "There must be a problem. But I need to have awareness of the problem," another player said. "We are adult enough to understand if there is a problem, that is fine, but we have to see how we resolve the issue from here."

Tim May come out come out wherever you are..... :)

@Yasir Azmal: So u mean to say BD fans have been too impressive comparing an apple with an orange ? IPL compared to BPL ? What kind of joke is this ? All the franchises failing to pay vs a single franchise failing to pay,the reason for that every Indian & RCB crew themselves know. Its not an hidden fact @Vilander: Yeah in your dreams sire. Though honestly I want to see all these damn leagues to be off including IPL, BBL, BPL and what not.. there is nothing happening to the top 2 leagues IPL and BBL for sure, other leagues can't be given the same assurance. @Tauhid Ahmed Bappy: We have been calling BD a potential side for past 12 years, this is not 1950's or 1960's where u lacked technology and stuffs, inspite of having all of this BD has never risen to occasion other than the odd wins once a blue moon. If really BD turn out like another SL, I would be the first person to be happy but sir I like to live in the world of reality, the reality is BD is on a slope it can fall either side.

Posted by serious-am-i on (July 14, 2012, 15:40 GMT)

@reyme: You guys never seem to learn from your BD friends mistakes, don't you get bored at this honestly ? ICL has nothing to do with BCCI, ICL was shut down because they lost their sponsors & they were offering too much for the players - above their limit, lets not get ICL into this, I don't care about it. Its a false promise bcoz BCB promised twice not once when delay occurred that they would clear out of the payments, here BCCI nor IPL governing body have been directly contacted so far regarding the payment issue not the same case with BCB, so compare apple with apple not an apple with an orange. Can u recollect who were the players who went to court for the payment ? They were the players who weren't even present in India for the season but they wanted to get paid, so better get your facts right. @Rezaul: Its not double standards as BCCI hasn't been asked to step in as of now, not the same case with BCB, where the issue was directly brought upto BCB twice before the threaten hppd.

Posted by Sakthiivel on (July 14, 2012, 13:45 GMT)

Its only more Bangladesh fans complaining and as per the report the players not complaining about this. This hilarious that IPL is compared with BPL. I dont know how to compare that. Winning against 2 string SA team or once in blue moon with test team wont put you in top.

Posted by Rezaul on (July 14, 2012, 4:38 GMT)

I would love to see FICA president give his statement on this issue. He was/is so vocal against BPL that he even called players to boycott BPL next season. I doubt whether he is going to say the same about RCB/IPL. Thats the double standard in the name of professionalism.

Posted by reyme on (July 14, 2012, 0:57 GMT)

@serious-am-i Only $70K is due out of millions of $ for ALL the international players combined and that is also due to some miscommunication. So the players are paid off and if someone is NOT fully he already got at least 95% by now. How is that a false promise then? On the other hand non payment issue is not the first timer in IPL. In case you dont know players were even gone to court to get their payments. ICL is also known for its non payment saga thus eventually got shut down. .

Posted by   on (July 14, 2012, 0:47 GMT)

i read some of the Indian fans comments....its really hurting...u guys have to-much ego man...'Don't fly too far,u will be fall" ...remember it man....this is not the only summer,more summer is coming...........................

Posted by ajhuss12 on (July 13, 2012, 23:19 GMT)

contact Tim May at tbamay@gmail.com

FICA web address is http://www.thefica.com/en/contact-us

Posted by Vilander on (July 13, 2012, 22:29 GMT)

I am bangladeshi fan, IPL is not paying players, BPL has payed players. Start ignoring IPL for next 10 years, and i mean it !! :))

Posted by   on (July 13, 2012, 19:54 GMT)

@serious am i_ may be u don't have any idea about the difference among a minnow, a potential and a strong side..Bd are not bexactly a strong side but they have potential...i know Indian guys will back RCB up..and MR TIM MAY will also play his silent role

Posted by   on (July 13, 2012, 15:03 GMT)

Only 1 question ? Where is the angry man Tim May ? and where is the FICA ?

Posted by serious-am-i on (July 13, 2012, 14:13 GMT)

Tim May is no where to be seen bcoz the issue has not been brought to him by the players directly so far. This is the first time RCB has defaulted in 5 years, that's not a bad ratio compared to the BCB's payment issues in the very first year with false promises. The other reason is even if RCB fails to pay, BCCI can step in and play these players & staff, they can afford it, its not like the state of BCB. @Ahmed Ishtiaque: So you say BD is no more a minnow ? Have I heard a win against any other nation's full squad XI in tests for BD, sorry my memory sucks, can any one remind me please guys. Wait a minute, yeah BD is no more a minnow because they won 2 matches back-to-back at home. That's def. a feat bravo. So, may be Ireland shouldn't be called an minnow either. They have won against Pakistan, England & not-so-minnow Bangladesh. Jokes aside, Mallya sell stakes @ RCB u can't afford it any more, its the end of Good Times.

Posted by vish2020 on (July 13, 2012, 12:21 GMT)

Shut the front door!!! do I see ppl comparing IPL to BPL or SLPL or whatever PL's??? RCB should pay players but guys let's not compare IPL to these other leagues who will be lucky to make it further than 3rd or 4th year! Give me a break!!

Posted by raj60 on (July 13, 2012, 11:03 GMT)

Tim May is very quiet about this, he made a big noise about BPL. Has BCCI silenced him.

Posted by   on (July 13, 2012, 11:00 GMT)

Now, I am eagerly waiting to see what FICA says about it. They are badly after BCB for non-payment issue in BPL. I agree, BCB should have cleared the money by that time. But you have to consider that they have arranged such a big tournament for the first time. They are struggling to cope with such financial issues. But as BCB is the guarantor so every single player will be paid. But they have made this the BIGGEST issue and this is all because it is Bangladesh, whom they still consider as minnow. Bangladesh is not the BIG FISH and FICA can show their strength against them. But they wont make any statement about any payment issue with any IPL team as this is Indian Premiere League and they wont make a mess with them. Shame on you FICA.

Posted by   on (July 13, 2012, 10:54 GMT)

Here is an Idea.Drop the cheer girls & party,im sure you can use a lot of that money to pay your players.

Posted by ashes267 on (July 13, 2012, 10:20 GMT)

Mallaya will sell his houses , posh Villas in Mumbai and Banglore to pay IPL players .. My undercover agents reports this ;)

Posted by   on (July 13, 2012, 9:08 GMT)

FYI BCB paid all the overseas players who played in BPL.BPL 2 will held on JAN,2013.

Posted by Samar_Singh on (July 13, 2012, 8:46 GMT)

ha ha ha .. This is IPL at its best mere Bhai ... If FICA can ask player not to participate in BPL why not in the IPL as the same thing is happening in IPL repeatedly .. " Listen to the money talks " Bravo ACDC

Posted by borhans on (July 13, 2012, 8:41 GMT)

FICA was barking against BPL payment but now become pussy cat for IPL .

Posted by   on (July 13, 2012, 8:14 GMT)

Obay :(

It is so sad and heart wrenching to know that these poor fellows sweat everything they have in the scorching heat of Indian summers, play in intimidating atmosphere in the home ground of their opponents and do all they can to win matches and entertain public and still they have not got their money. This is really bad. People are so uncaring that they call them overpaid and all. Do you forget that these guys brave severe injuries to play for their teams. Do you forget that these players don't mind stinking heat to play. Do you forget that these guys ignore astronomical run rates to chase down mammoth totals for their team. Do you forget that these guys take all troubles to stay away from their families for months. I salute these brave warriors of RCB and desperately expect that they get not only their money but the love of all people.

Posted by dicky_boy on (July 13, 2012, 6:26 GMT)

ALSO Wonder why no story about latest developments about BPL LACK OF PAYMENTS , THIS SHOWS THAT EVEN REPORTING NEWS ABOUT BPL IS USELESS HAHA

Posted by dicky_boy on (July 13, 2012, 6:23 GMT)

OH COME ON PEOPLE, DON'T SHOW YOUR JEALOUSY, RCB OWNER IS GOING THROUGH HIS OWN DIFFICULTIES ,HE LOST HIS AIRLINE BUISNESS AND ALSO HE WAS IN A LOSS SINCE 2 YEARS, ACTUALLY HE MADE PROFIT THROUGH IPL, SO PLEASE BANGLADESH FANS UNDERSTAND NOTHIN WRONG WITH IPL AND ALSO ENGLISH FANS IPL IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD , DONT WORRY THIS IS THE OWNER PROBLEM NOT THE IPL. CRICINFO PLEASE PUBLISH

Posted by Fanatic_cricko on (July 13, 2012, 5:11 GMT)

Where is Tim May (FICA)????? Whare are you hiding???? Wake up please..............your players are not paid by IPL.....have you heard that??? Why only big mouth when BPL franchise delayed? What a double standard.....

Posted by Meety on (July 13, 2012, 4:50 GMT)

This happens a fair bit in Asia, pretty sure SL players haven't been paid by their board & the BPL was lax in paying those players.

Posted by NP_NY on (July 13, 2012, 4:01 GMT)

@bigdhonifan: I agree with you that they will get paid eventually. But that's not the point. The point is the salaries have been delayed without notice. That is shameful not only for RCB but for the IPL too. Where is the famous Mallya pride now? Even smaller franshises have paid without default. But I agree with you that this is not nearly as bad as BPL where all franchises defaulted in the very first edition.

Posted by Stanmclean on (July 13, 2012, 1:01 GMT)

Call the World Vision India. What happened to our donations, hehe. England is coming, better get ready for another 0-4.

Posted by SanjivAwesome on (July 12, 2012, 20:50 GMT)

Mr Mallaya is certainly working hard to pay his pilots, air hostesses and ground crew. Many airline financiers have come unstuck because that is a matured, low value business.

Posted by LeftBrain on (July 12, 2012, 20:36 GMT)

Looks like some issue. WOndering why we havent hear any thing from these players federations so much, like they did for Bangla league and recently for the timing of Pak Aus series in UAE......... oh wait, this relates to India, the holy cow of cricket

Posted by Vilander on (July 12, 2012, 20:20 GMT)

mallaya should quit, he is tarnishing Indias image.

Posted by Vilander on (July 12, 2012, 20:17 GMT)

Hi Hyd flick, do you work in a govt organization ? :)

Posted by bigdhonifan on (July 12, 2012, 19:05 GMT)

This is only for RCB. this caused as Kingfisher (Owned by Vijay Mallya and UB group) went bankrupt!!! But all other franchises are safe. Here players are in no need to worry as this is not organized by poor countries like Pak, Bangladesh or Srilanka. here BCCI already taken Bank Guarantee and they will pay on time.

Posted by bigdhonifan on (July 12, 2012, 19:00 GMT)

No worries, there is bank guarantee by RCB to BCCI. So everyone will get paid. This is not BPL or BBL or SLPL.

Posted by HyderabadiFlick on (July 12, 2012, 18:18 GMT)

Is this the first nail in the coffin for IPL? or Is it a blessing in disguise for Indian and world cricket? We do not know what it is but surely again the mother nature has proved that lavish lives die a bad death.Hard earned money has more value than over paid easy jobs.It is just like an IT job in India, when the going is good and when freshers are earning more money than their parents, then the first timers will not know the value of the money.This example holds good for IPL stake holders, players, owners, please value the money. In Hyderabad coffee tables the rumors are that DC team is also up for sale. Whatever it is because of IPL most of the players are getting injured before the International matches and stands are empty for an International cricket. IPL is b'coz of Intl cricket and not the other way round. Good Luck Indian Cricket and IPL. - Jai Hind.

Posted by Cpt.Meanster on (July 12, 2012, 18:10 GMT)

Hmpf.. I don't even understand why this is a major news item ?! Similar things were reported last year following the IPL and eventually these things will settle down. These so called 'complaining' players and officials will be the FIRST to line up to participate and play in the IPL next season. This is what I call promotional journalism at its worst. To what levels do reporters stoop in order to get a story.. ha !

Posted by JS82 on (July 12, 2012, 18:06 GMT)

Tim May and FICA .. please ask players to not play in IPL like you did for BPL. Otherwise stop whining about BPL in the future.

haha where is all the money now RCB

Posted by Breaking_Point on (July 12, 2012, 17:44 GMT)

Posted by Breaking_Point on (July 12, 2012, 17:31 GMT)

*Hahahaha*! Please guys...where r theose who were shouting 24/7 about BPL payment issue ( which is solved now) *hahahahahaha*

Posted by   on (July 12, 2012, 17:31 GMT)

What is the IPL doing about this? Should not they intervene on behalf of the players as they are also a party to the contracted payment clauses? Or has it conveniently washed its hands off the matter seeing that it has already made its profits and been paid by the franchises.

Posted by Sehwag_Is_Ordinary on (July 12, 2012, 17:17 GMT)

Not a single statement from Tim May? I mean seriously; everyone should be treated equally

Respect for Vijay Mallya. I thought only the pilots and air hostesses were not paid salaries. Looks like Vijay is treating everyone equally. *Respect*

Posted by riverlime on (July 12, 2012, 16:18 GMT)

Why delay the last 35% if your team doesn't make it to the Champions League? Is it because eventually ALL IPL teams will have automatic qualification to the CL?

'Animal Farm' within 'Animal Farm' within 'Animal Farm'! Among the various cricket Boards, BCCI is more equal than others! Within BCCI's IPL, some franchisees are more equal than others. Within a franchise, (say, RCB), Chris Gayle is more equal than others. George Orwell, where are you? Your celebrated work is being re-celebrated within the cricketing world !!

Posted by   on (July 12, 2012, 15:49 GMT)

The economics were not balanced right, from the very beginning of IPL. It (the economics alone, I am talking about) was skewed in favour of the "bigger" auctioned players. I can safely predict, a few franchises (certainly more than two) will fold up or sold of in another year or two. Players fee will also come down to a bit more reasonable level. So, will be the greed of BCCI. The real sustainable economics will emerge only by the year 2015, or so. ( The insider owned and the influential one will survive though, through hook or crook!

Posted by bddhika_harindat on (July 12, 2012, 15:48 GMT)

Last year BCCI refused to issue no objection letters to their players for taking in inagural SLPL stating that there's no sufficient guarantee for the compensation of palyers. So, now it is the time for overseas Players and Boards to demand financial guarantees from BCCI if they are to take any further in this so called IPL...BCCI is gradually falling apart and signs are clear that they dont respect to policies / regulations same like stand against DRS system.

Posted by Charlie101 on (July 12, 2012, 15:43 GMT)

The salaries rather like the the English Premiership are too high for the team or franchise to make any money . Bradford Bulls / Rangers / Portsmouth have all been in big trouble and it is the tip of a very large sporting iceberg . I hope the golden goose will not be cooked as I really enjoyed the IPL this year .

Posted by AbhijeetC on (July 12, 2012, 15:41 GMT)

it is problem of franchise, kingfisher airlines is going down, now IPL franchise.....what is wrong with Vijay Malya, Why don't he get down and sort out the problem he and his company is facing..... I hope other franchises are paying their players

Posted by Sakthiivel on (July 12, 2012, 15:35 GMT)

@serious-am-i : off course BCCI can pay that. Need to put heavy stick for franchise like RCB. This is not fair LIKE "Gayle is looked after separately".

Posted by dillion88 on (July 12, 2012, 15:23 GMT)

LOL, Gayle has been paid and is being looked after separately. at least they're taking care of the players that matter.

Posted by visha_pb on (July 12, 2012, 15:19 GMT)

When SLPL starts, Indians commenting on that very badly. They was telling - These are very little amounts, If it is compare with IPL just like a mouse. India have too much money.... and many more things. But everybody can see now what is the reality is. What a shame for IPL. What a shame for Indian Cricket Board. At least no answer for the Emails.God.............

Posted by joynal693 on (July 12, 2012, 15:02 GMT)

Where is Mr. TIM MAY now. He will not be able to say anything because the RCB team from India. A team may have problem and should be understood by the players as well as Mr. TIM from FICA. They will be paid definitely either today or tomorrow.

Posted by   on (July 12, 2012, 14:31 GMT)

Chris Gayle is treated separately :.... Gayle has learnt a lot from Allan Stanford in the Caribbean.. get paid first work after.... :) true Jamaican lol.... with visibility now i'm sure they will work it out with the players. perhaps they should ask Gayle to go collect their salaries for them DWL...

Posted by   on (July 12, 2012, 14:29 GMT)

Looks like Tim May is not around his office these days. @ critics of some crazy Ind fan, I won't wish to an end of IPL as you did for BPL.

Posted by   on (July 12, 2012, 14:25 GMT)

The lack of communication is not just done. It only adds doubts to the financial stability of RCB. Vijay Mallya/his staff should communicate with the players and clarify RCB's stand as far as payments are concerned.

Posted by Donga-The-Bonga on (July 12, 2012, 14:18 GMT)

Any person or organization who associate themselves with Vijay Mallaya has to be prepared for this. He is on a very steep downward trend.... Self-glory seems to be more important than anything else for VM... what a joke.

"TIM MAY" bro ARe u readY wid all ur LAwYErs ??? its time for IPL maN

Posted by ProdigyA on (July 12, 2012, 13:39 GMT)

All IPL bashers, come on now. Its the best chance to degrade urselves. For the players, they can relax, its just a matter of BCCI taking notice of this issue and it will be fixed in a day. As for RCB, i doing my best by buying as much KF Premium as i can :)

Posted by maddy20 on (July 12, 2012, 13:38 GMT)

The Mallya's are neck deep in debts. It would be wise for them to sell the franchise to someone else. IPL governing council should clear the dues from the $200mil bank security paid by the franchise for owning the team. @asiacricket1234 This is the first time it has ever happened and the financial difficulties of UB group are no secret. Even so it is only one franchise that has defaulted unlike BPL where all the franchises have done it to all the foreign players. I am sure they will be paid soon one way or another.

Posted by Keithnkin on (July 12, 2012, 13:35 GMT)

Ditto to Asiacricket1234. We are missing Tim May of FICA very much at this moment of need. Hypocrites!

Posted by EnglishCricket on (July 12, 2012, 13:31 GMT)

@Sak-pakifan...I don't understand why you're here? Pakistan don't even have a T20 tournament and where is Tim May? :)

I didn't know RCB is part of BPL franchise :b

Posted by NP_NY on (July 12, 2012, 13:20 GMT)

Come on! This is getting ridiculous. One can expect this kind of behavior from the Bangladesh Premier League, but RCB??? Mr.Mallya, where is the dignity and pride in this? I am staying away from Kingfisher beer until the players get paid :).

Posted by   on (July 12, 2012, 13:11 GMT)

Haha so called money tournament

Posted by asiacricket1234 on (July 12, 2012, 13:07 GMT)

Where is Tim May now??? Actually where is Lord_Dravid and co.... LOL, They were making fun of BPL and saying how IPL never had such problem although they had these sort of problem in their first sesson :O. Bad to see such thing happening. Hope they'll sort it out soon :D

Posted by Sinhaya on (July 12, 2012, 13:04 GMT)

This is odd. I thought IPL franchises pay the players well on time.

Posted by   on (July 12, 2012, 12:57 GMT)

This is the beginning of the end for the IPL, and also not a good scenario fro the future of the game overall...

Posted by serious-am-i on (July 12, 2012, 12:56 GMT)

Its a known fact Kingfisher is going towards the big doom. Mallya might have paid the players if RCB won the IPL as he could have used the funds they had won since they didn't win it, they have to pay it out of their pockets. I really wonder if V.M would pay as they haven't paid their own airline staff properly for a long time now. All the best RCB players and staff in getting your dues. I hope, BCCI steps in and pay out to the players for now & later hope to get it back from RCB or cut it from the revenue share of RCB which they are supposed to recv. after end of the IPL (tv + what not, in case they haven't yet done so). I would advise these players to take it up directly to BCCI as, BCCI is trying to get its ass off in keeping the brand IPL at a good stake and such a negative publicity will hurt them pretty bad.

Posted by VJGS on (July 12, 2012, 12:53 GMT)

Mallya should sell RCB to someone else. He is going through a huge loss. At least, I'm helping the sales of his Kingfisher Premium.

Posted by Sehwag_Is_Ordinary on (July 12, 2012, 12:51 GMT)

LOL where is Tim May now?

Posted by Sak-pakifan on (July 12, 2012, 12:50 GMT)

DONT BE LIKE BPL FRANCHISES

Posted by veerakannadiga on (July 12, 2012, 12:48 GMT)

This is God's way of punishing RCB. Dr.Mallaya is in deep financial mess, I am not making fun of that, but, to leave out a player like Rahul Dravid from RCB, well this is what happens.Hope this is resolved early. Good luck to Dr.Mallaya.
