  3. Sachin is the best cricketer of the world.
    That is why he is God of cricket. He played for his country so well. He is a master blaster. All bowlers fear his batting skills. He can play any shot. He has played for India for more than 20 years. So he earned a lot of name and fame.
    Indians are proud about him.

  4. It will be Virat Kohli in the top in a year or two. He endorses brands like Tissot, wrogn, Adidas and makes huge money. He also owns a football franchise. He is a promising player, he’ll be the captain for the Indian team soon. His brand value will raise more after that.

    I’m sure he’ll be the richest soon as he will become the captain for the team after Dhoni retires and a very successful and popular cricketer around the world.

  8. I wonder how Yusuf Pathan is in the list. He only plays good innings occasionally and I don’t think any companies will expect him to endorse their products. Although he has a good potential, he fails to deliver. I think that isn’t the right impression to convey to a customer.
    MS Dhoni is a true brand of the nation. With his good captaincy skills, calm nature, great cricketing skills he is the star of present day cricket. He endorses several brands also has his own brands. No doubt that he has become the richest cricketer of India, for the popularity he has worldwide.

    • Dhoni is the best captain ever. He has achieved some great things for Indian cricket. He has brought up many young talents to the team who have performed well. He guides his team to victory, he stays calm and takes all the pressure with ease.
