Interesting example used there sim dog :)

not everyone gets a flat rate at some clubs either... But nobody is meant to know about all that anyway. I got paid 'performance' last year but won't this year. Its ridiculous that a cricketer as bad as I am can get pocket money for playing cricket.

Would be great to get paid for doing the sport we all love!

I may have a word with the Chairman and see if I can get 5p a run and 10p a catch! May even have enough to treat myself to a pint by the end of the season!  ;)

Used to get a certain amount for scoring over 40/60/80/100 at a club in Wales  when I was at Uni (and bonuses for any wickets if I had a spell), only played a few games for them in the end and the standard was lower than I usually play but it paid for a couple of nights out at least!

I get paid by my job to play same wage if that counts, around 20-30 days a season.

Club wise well that's a benefit scheme

"Hi Boss
I'll be playing cricket from 1st January through to 31st December this year.
Can I get my unclaimed holiday paid on top of my salary please?"
