    it would depend upon what type of money cricket generated in 1999

    better Q, what if Kluesner of '99 would be available for selection now .... i reckon, he would have been amongst the top 2-3 earners, if not the top

    Quite a large amount, I would have thought.

    Well, I was a massive Lance Klusener fan in the day so yeah, I'd say a player like him would have been up in the top earners. He doesn't have the same visual appeal as Symonds and, as a fielder in the ring, is a more visible entity but still, for raw hitting and bowling skills, he'd have been somewhere near the top.

    Actually, this raises interesting questions about who would have been the top earners in any era of cricket. Imagine if the IPL was played after the 1975 WC for example?

    The question is what if the IPL had been running 10 years, ICL would have never happen, it probably would include 10 maybe 12 teams. and England, Sth Africa, Pak, Srl, NZ and Aust. would have had there own comp by then. but I would guess the IPL and the eng version would have been seen as the elite devisions where players could have earned the most money. But we will see what the outcome is in 2018 or 10 years from now.

    Has any one herd about Aust/NZ making a 20/20 comp 6 teams from Aust and 4 from NZ. I herd someone on tlakback a few weeks mention this, it was ment to start 08 /09 season.

    Klusener > than any ODI player in the last 15 years. 2nd highest earner I'd say. Its not all about cricket and considering that Dhoni is young, marketable, he would remain at the top.

    Dhoni
    SRT
    Klusener
    Ponting
    Gilchrist
    Symonds
    Hussey
    Warne
    McGrath
    Lee
    Afridi
    KP
    Dravid
    Ganguly
    Kallis
    McCullum
    Vettori
    Hayden
    Fleming
    Sangakkara

    There is 20 or so players there, I had a punt but I have got a few players around the wrong way or missing some, so if you can do better then do so

    Note I had Dravid and Ganguly up there as I was assuming they would be pretty big in India sponsorship-wise so they would be earning a few quid just because who they are. In retrospect perhaps I should of had SRT ahead of Dhoni.

    S Waugh would have been massive after the 99 WC, and he's very popular in India.

    So is Damian Martyn

    Actually what is about him that makes him pretty popular in India?

    SRT would have earned more than Dhoni if he was on the open market like Dhoni was. He was selected as an icon player for Mumbai so he just makes 15% more than the highest earner in Mumbai. Dhoni is the flavor of the month, but Sachin has been an icon for too long.

    TBH, I'm very surprised that Klusener doesn't even seem to have had any IPL interest even now at 36 years of age. He's still a damn good batsman and has been performing consistently in recent years. His bowling isn't particularly good any more, but Twenty20 isn't about bowling.
