Top 10 money makers of IPL
Posted by sriram on April 17, 2008
Not including BCCI in this list is deliberate. Because, I really do not know how much do they really make.
|1||MS Dhoni||Chennai||$1,500,000||Highest paid player in the team|
|2||Andrew Symonds||Hyderabad||$1,350,000||Highest paid player in the team|
|3||Sachin Tendulkar||Mumbai||$1,121,250||Icon Player for Mumbai|
|4||Sourav Ganguly||Kolkata||$1,092,500||Icon Player for Kolkata|
|5||Yuvraj Singh||Mohali||$1,063,750||Icon Player for Mohali|
|6||Rahul Dravid||Bangalore||$1,035,000||Icon Player for Bangalore|
|7||Sanath Jayasuriya||Mumbai||$975,000||Highest paid player in the team|
|8||Ishant Sharma||Kolkata||$950,000||Highest paid player in the team|
|9||Irfan Pathan||Mohali||$925,000||Highest paid player in the team|
|10||Jacques Kallis||Bangalore||$900,000||Highest paid player in the team|
Icon player receives 15% more than the highest bid player in the team. Which means :
- Sachin should thank Sanath
- Sourav should thank Ishant Sharma
- Yuvraj should thank Irfan Pathan
- Rahul should thank Jacques Kallis.
The two teams which did not feature in this top 10 list are Jaipur and Delhi.
Top bid for Delhi is Gautam Gambhir for $725,000. Which means Virendra Sehwag gets $797, 000.Top bid for Jaipur is Mohammad Kaif for $675, 000. There is no Icon player for Jaipur.
SRk, Mallya, Preity Zinta did not feature in this list because they are bleeding money right now and yet to make money. Mallya starts his minting machine tomorrow.
