It's just another source of income for the players that are solely focusing on t20 cricket, the pay packet may already be enough but why not make the most out of companies throwing plenty of cash at you to put their stickers on your bats! It's a no brainer especially for the older players coming to the end of their careers

..... unfortunate but true.

Unable to figure out what is wrong in it! Most professionals remain at the top only for a very short time. What is wrong in their trying to make as much money as possible?

Damn .. He was probably the only Aussie using GM gear ! SG is hunting for all the T20 marauders. Andre Russel was using SG for a while and now he has moved to Spartan.

SS (biggest subcontinent sponsors) don't think much of the aussie markets- much smaller numbers and a lot of existing brand loyalty to Kookaburra & Gray Nics.

Instead they prefer UK- hence Moin, Bopara etc.

Agreed. SS sales in subcontinent is probably 10 times higher than Australia. Given Kook is a home brand for Aus, there would be tremendous loyalty and its going to be a little difficult to compete with them. Kook certainly has more money and wider exposure than SS to gain access to aussie players.
