Cricket is the most popular sport in India. We play cricket from the small field to the terrace of the house. There are a lot of people who adore every player and want to be like them. But there is something else that surprises us. Rewards for players.
Cricketers are the star kings of the Indian sports world, making a lot of money not only through play but also through publicity and non-cricket deals. Also, if you play in Tests, ODIs, international tournaments, and then domestic cricket, the BCCI will give you a lucrative amount.
