In the BBL and WBBL drafts, 50 players received platinum status, including Haris Rauf, Nicholas Pooran, Harmanpreet Kaur, and Marizanne Kapp.
While there are seven players from England in the WBBL platinum group, there are 14 players from England on the BBL list, including Ashes stars Harry Brook and Zak Crawley. India supplies five WBBL players, while South Africa six.
On September 3, the drafts will take place. While the BBL runs from December 7 to January 24 and the WBBL from October 19 to December 2, respectively.

The WBBL will use a draft to choose foreign players for the first time ever, but there is also a structure that allows players to join directly with a team, a route that six players have adopted, for a discounted price. Suzie Bates, Tammy Beaumont, Sophia Dunkley, Amy Jones, Mignon du Preez, and Lizelle Lee are the names of the individuals.
Players in the WBBL will get AUD$110,00 for platinum status, AUD$90,000 for gold, AUD$65,000 for silver, and AUD$40,000 for bronze. Only 95% of the silver category may be earned by those who choose the direct nomination route.
The men’s BBL foreign wage bands have increased as a result of the cap’s adjustment from AUD$1.9 million to AUD$3 million. There are certain restrictions, but platinum players will now receive AUD$420,000, up from $340,000 last year. Only if they are available for the entire season, which runs from December 7 to January 24, including finals, will they be paid in full.
They will receive AUD$400,000 even if they play in just 10 games. The cost will be AUD $380,000 if they are only able to play nine games. Anyone in the platinum category who is only available for eight games or less will be paid AUD$360,000 whether they play one game or eight.
There is no minimum match requirement for gold players, who will earn AUD$300,000, silver players AUD$200,000, and bronze players AUD$100,000 instead.
Due to both international obligations and other T20 tournaments, availability will be a crucial component of the BBL. Players that travel to the SA20, which begins on January 10, will miss the final few weeks of the regular BBL season. The ILT20 in the UAE has a more accommodating schedule now that it begins on January 19, even though it will affect the BBL finals.
With a white-ball trip to the West Indies in December and the commencement of the Test series in India in January, England has international visits at either end of the BBL. This might reduce public interest in athletes like Brook and Crawley.
At the same time as the BBL, Pakistan, who also contribute a sizable group of players to the overall draft list, will play a Test series in Australia, followed later in January by a T20I series in New Zealand.
