SHOCKING : Salaries Of Indian Cricketers !! : Virat Kohli Is Paid Way More Than Dhoni !!

Needless to say, cricket is not just a sport but a religion in our country and there are countless people who adore and worship their favourite cricketers like Gods. In fact, it won’t be wrong to say that several Indian cricketers are counted among the world’s highest paid cricket players. At the same time, BCCI (Board of Cricket Control in India) is among the planet’s richest cricketing boards and there is no wonder why cricketers are paid such high amounts.


Many people in India want to make a career in cricket and hence, the competition to make it to the final 11 is indeed cut-throat. Taking this into consideration, we must say that the players who have made it to the team actually deserve to be paid high because they work very hard for maintaining the required fitness level.
