    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Did win the WC though, and took the team to #1 in rankings for a while. Not that he would have been poor otherwise, but if you only want to reward results, that's pretty good.

    Never seen what's particularly impressive about Dhoni's "helicopter" shot if you ask me...

    I'm not trying to say it's a bad shot, or anything like that.

    It just seems to be made a big deal of every time he's batting, and in my opinion it's just a glorified slog.

    He can definitely pull it off though, I've got no qualms about that.

    It affects subcontinental wind systems and pushes the south westerlies up north faster if he happens to be playing in Chennai or Bangalore during the middle part of the year.

    Digs out yorkers, and hits them out of the park for six. Does it very often. It may not be the prettiest thing but it is impressive.

    EDIT: and yeah, it's funny. Leaves a wtf expression on the bowler's face.

    Yeah, he did that against us during that wc semi final in which our team match fixed to give you guys the title.

    Floyd Mayweather's income on this list is amazing. Especially since its all payments for boxing and not endorsements.

    Just incredible.

    Meanwhile don't see how Dhoni can be hated for the money he earns. Winning the World Cup with a match winning knock as captain in the biggest financial market in cricket logically would result in a **** load of cash.
