Australian players part of the Pune Warriors squad in the Indian Premier League have received only 65 per cent of the total amount owed by the now defunct franchise.

Pacer Kane Richardson, including Steve Smith, Aaron Finch, and allrounder Mitchell Marsh owed 2013 payments from Pune Warriors ahead of Indian Premier League auction deadline.

Richardson, 22, was secured by the Warriors for 700,000 dollar in the 2013 auction, but has only received 65 per cent of the amount.
Cricket Australia maintains it is assisting Australian players and the BCCI to resolve the matter.

CA spokesman said that all players will be paid what is owed to them once these matters are resolved, The Daily telegraph reports.

Kochi and Pune were added to the IPL in 2011 and have subsequently folded.

Pune backer Sahara refused to provide a bank guarantee required for inclusion in the 2014 IPL and is responsible for player payments.

The onus is now on the BCCI to cover player salaries, possibly from Pune's 2013 bank guarantee.
