Steve Smith Made $646.77 Per Run In 2017

Some jobs are remunerated with a fixed salary, some with a retainer and others with performance-based payouts.


The Australian Cricket Team has them all.


Each player is paid a retainer (securing them for the year), a fee for each match they play and in-game bonuses based on performance. For example, doubling their match fee if they make 5 wickets.

With Australia rolling all over England in the Ashes, I was curious as to how much each player made per run and wicket in the 2016/2017 season.

Curiosity got the best of me so I did some digging and worked it out.


Cricket Australia paid Steve Smith $646.77 per run in 2016/2017.


You may be wondering why a cash flow tool is taking a look at some cricket stats.

Well, this is exactly the type of analysis CashMaster's fantastic at - analysing your money coming in, understanding where it's going out, and making wise decisions based on this analysis.

I'm not going to make any decisions based on these stats, however, I'll leave that up to Cricket Australia. 

Notes:

  • The lower the cost per run or per wicket the more valuable the player is.
  • Each player was paid a $900,000 retainer except for Steve Smith who was paid $1,120,000.
  • The match fees used:
    • Test - $14,000
    • ODI - $7,000
    • T20 - $5,000
  • In-match bonuses have not been taken into consideration.
  • Stats have been gathered for the April 2016 - March 2017 season from Howstats.com
