    Highest paid cricketers?

    I assume the total money earned by cricketers is highest for Indian players, though with the rupee weak compared to many other nations, others might be close.

    Anyone have any idea how much cricketers from all the nations make (including endorsements)?

    I know Sachin Tendulkar makes around $13.5million - $14million USD. So thats a decent wage in any sport, and though it doesn't compare to the Schumasters and Woods of the world, its a good wage for any player. I am wondering how other cricketers (especially non-Indian ones) fare?

    Ryan Sidebottom a reliable left arm seamer gets paid 70 grand a year by Nottinghamshire.

    I assume FC cricketers don't have any other endorsements and things like that in England?

    Is this just in wages or in sponsorships too?

    Well, I'm guessing that the highest profile ones get paid that most. It seems pretty obvious that Flintoff, Warne, Pietersen, Tendulkar, McGrath, Lara and Dave Mohammed get the most in sponsorships, and so on, simply because of their fame.

    Well I know that Tendulkar is the highest paid cricketer in the world, but I don't know how close behind the others are.

    It's a pretty safe bet that Warne will be very high up that list, probably 2nd.

    I would bet that at least two other Indian cricketers are ahead of him on that list. Even MS Dhoni, he's everywhere on posters and things.

    Why would Indian players be better paid that Aussie ones?

    Flintoff earned about £3m last year according to reports. Ricky Ponting about Aus$2.2million apparently.

    You have to understand - this is not a reflection of their skill. India is just the biggest market.

    In fact, I would venture to say that Irfan Pathan made more last year than Shane Warne (though I am not 100% sure on that). Dhoni, I think, definitely did.
