Cape Town - The first-round picks at Tuesday's 2019 Mzansi Super League (MSL) player draft will pocket R1 million each.
That was confirmed in a Cricket South Africa (CSA) statement on Monday morning.
Each of the six franchises will make 14 picks at the draft, which will be held in Johannesburg on Tuesday.
The franchises already have an international marquee player and a Proteas marquee player each confirmed.
The players who have been retained by their franchises, meanwhile, will form part of the draft but they will obviously not be picked by another or sides and have already been allocated their contract values.
In total, each franchise will spend R5.325 million at the draft, which amounts to a total of R31.95 million.
That money that the franchises spend on players will be paid by CSA.
By the time the draft is complete, each franchise will have a squad of 16 players.
On match days, franchises must field at least two overseas players and two black Africans, while there must also be one rookie included in the squad of 16.
The six MSL teams have also announced the
