Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson has reportedly acquired a bumper boost in pay around 1 million dollars. Cricket Australia (CA) is set to mention its fresh contract list shortly and Johnson is competing along with David Warner for the No.2 place on the list behind Test skipper Michael Clarke, a year after he was nearly snubbed from the board’s top level player contract list.
As per reports, that puts at least 15 Australian cricketers ahead of him at the time and Mitchell Johnson was close to the bottom of the CA player pay scale as he battled to return from injury and win back his baggy green cap. The report pointed out that although individual contract values are kept a closely-guarded secret, there is a difference in extra of 1 million dollars from the bottom to the top CA contact, showing that Mitchell Johnson’s remarkable Ashes winter has netted him in the vicinity of a cool one million dollars.
All of Australia’s international players will bank more luxurious pay-packets on the back of cricket’s media rights agreement of around 500 million dollars, the report said.
