    10Rahul Dravid  ~ US $23 million

    Rahul Dravid, often hailed as “The Wall”, has earned his spot amongst the cricketing greats. During his illustrious 16 year (1996-2012) career, Dravid mainly played in the test and ODI formats ( he played just 1 international T20) of the game and even donned the hat of the captain of the Indian team. But his most distinctive performances have invariably been in the test cricket. He also played in the India Premiere League for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the years 2008, 2009 and 2010.  Post retirement from the international cricket, he played in the 2012 IPL captaining the Rajasthan Royals. He also served as the mentor for Delhi Daredevils till the 2017 season. He has received the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan awards for his contributions to the sport by the Indian Government. He currently serves as the head coach for India’s U-19 and ‘A’ teams as well as the Overseas Batting Consultant for the Indian team. Along with all that on his plate, he is involved in mentoring future Olympians and Paralympians for India through his Athlete Mentorship programme.

    Rahul’s reputation as one of the most dependable, ethical and humble cricketers of his time still garners the respect of cricket fans and defines the “Brand Dravid”. He has endorsed more than 14 brands throughout his career including Reebok, Kissan, Pepsi, Bank of Baroda, Castrol, Samsung, Gillette, Max life, Kingfisher and continues to be associated with quite a few. The “Jammy” campaign by Kissan featuring Dravid from the 90s still remains his most memorable one. More recently, he endorses brands like Bank of Baroda, Max Life and can be seen in the anti-tobacco advisories. Mumbai based finance firm InCred has recently roped him as its Brand Ambassador in Aug 2017. The qualities that he brings to the table like dependability, composure, simplicity while being stylish continue to be big draw for corporates and governments initiatives alike even at the age of 44.

    His earnings from the coaching engagements are expected to be around 5 crore rupees or more just from the junior teams. Also the Daredevil assignment is expected to have fetched him upwards of 4 crores. All of this is without considering the money coming in from his multiple endorsements and associations with brands. With an extended playing career like Dravid’s, it is no surprise that he has a net worth of around US $23 million.

    I'm a huge Nadal & Liverpool fan. A massive foodie who is crazy about GoT, Harry Potter, Calvin & Hobbes and Friends, I love reading non/historical fiction. Used to be a tennis player before work caught up. Tennis has now been conveniently substituted by cycling.I am an avid traveler who believes that the pleasure is in the journey!


    1. Cricketers enjoying best life than any other profession.Foolish fans still making them richer.Millions suffering with poverty totally ignored by all.Horrible situation in Indian life.

      • What is your problem? No horrible situation Indian life than, Mr. Mutaher Ali imagination life. Try to feed correctly your family Mr.M.Ali, than weaping for others for nothing? Others know how to feed themself!!!! M.Ali too much percipited.

        • Millions of Indian slaves in middle East and millions rotted in India by poorty…if there by God jobs why people going abroad .. Even so…Indian peoples worshipping cricketers and bolly wood stars blindly…these all are symbols of ignorance and streotype thoughts

    2. No doubt Sachin Tendulkar don’t wanted to retire from cricket. All parents now start thinking giving their children training only in cricket. There is no need to look for any other career to take up. I doubt any body is making that massive amount be Scientists, IAS, Doctors, Engineers or other highly qualified people.

    3. Cricket is a game for gentlemen and ladies. Not everybody can play it which requires high element of discipline and regard for the game. I was not very good at it only because of its precision and slow nature. I admire all sportsmen and women and wish them all well.
