10 richest Indian cricketers of all time
Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi had once said, “If the International Cricket Council (ICC) is the voice of cricket, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is the invoice of cricket.” In simple words, BCCI provided the international council with money and in return received immense power. India is the commercial epicentre of the game and counts for almost 80% of the revenue generated.
This naturally means that Indian cricketers are some of the best-paid athletes in the game, having wealth worth millions. It is understandable that because of the popularity, brilliant performances and might of the Indian board, the Blues have always been present in a list of the richest cricketers.
Here we take a look at the 10 richest Indian cricketers of all time who might even put businessmen and Indian politicians to shame.
