Indian Cricket Players Salary List 2020
As the cricket season is underway in India, we take a look at the top 2 Indian cricket players who are earning the highest salaries.
Virat Kohli, the current Indian captain, is the first cricketer on the list. He is earning a whopping Rs 7 crore (US$1.1 million) per year from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). This does not include the amount he earns from endorsements and other commercial activities.
The second highest-paid Indian cricketer is Rohit Sharma. He is also earning Rs 7 crore (US$1.1 million) per year from BCCI. This amount is likely to increase in the future as Rohit is one of the most sought-after players in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
These two players are followed by MS Dhoni, who is earning Rs 6 crore (US$0.9 million) per year, and Ravichandran Ashwin, who is on a Rs 5.5 crore (US$0.8 million) per year contract.
It is no surprise that the top 4 highest-paid Indian cricket players are 3 batters and one bowler. This is because batting is the most popular form of the game in India and the Indian team has always been known for its strong batting line-up.
However, it is interesting to note that Ravichandran Ashwin is the only bowler in the top 4. This just goes to show that he is one of the best bowlers in the world and is highly valued by the BCCI.
