The above players are among 56 foreign players listed to take part in the Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL) to be held in Colombo and Pallekele from August 10-31, Sri Lanka Cricket said in a statement.
Chris Gayle will be the highest paid player in the list at $100,000, while Shahid Afridi will get $50,000, according to a separate media release issued by the board.
The other foreign players will receive salaries ranging from $10,000 to $35,000 for their efforts in the 24-match event, Sport24 reports.
