Forbes recently released the list of top 10 earning cricketers of the world and our MS Dhoni tops the list with USD 10 million (which includes club and national team salaries and commercial endorsement income over the last 12 months).
#1. Mahendra Singh Dhoni (India) – USD 10 million
#2. Sachin Tendulkar (India) – USD 8 million
#3. Yuvraj Singh (India) – USD 5.5 million
#4. Rahul Dravid (India) – USD 5 million
#5. Andrew Flintoff (England) – USD 4 million
#6. Saurav Ganguly (India) – USD 3.5 million and Ricky Ponting (Australia) – USD 3.5 million
#8. Brett Lee (Australia) – USD 3 million and Kevin Pietersen (England) – USD 3 million
#10. Michael Clark (Australia) – USD 2.5 million
Nine out of these ten players feature in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
It is interesting to see this list dominated by India, Australia and England. I wonder if anyone from West Indies will ever make it to this list. We will wait and see!
