Kohli was knocked out by Joe Root before the Test series, and his face fell off the field.


Bangla Hunt Desk: The richest cricketer in the world is India captain Virat Kohli. A few days ago, Forbes published their list, in which Virat Kohli is ranked 66th. Only Virat Kohli has made it to the top 100 as the only cricketer. No matter how rich Virat Kohli is, England’s Test captain Joe Root earns more than Virat Kohli as captain.

Even cricketers like England star bowler Joffra Archer are known to earn more than Virat Kohli. Virat Kohli and Joe Root are going to face in the Test series a few days later. But before that, Root defeated Virat Kohli in an off-field fight.

The England Cricket Board deals separately for their Test format and limited overs cricket. England Test captain Joe Root receives a salary of লক্ষ 7 lakh a year from the board, which is estimated at Rs 7 crore 22 lakh in Indian rupees. On the other hand, Virat Kohli is an ‘A +’ cricketer under the contract of the Indian Cricket Board. Virat Kohli receives Rs 7 crore a year from the BCCI. That means Joe Root earns Rs 22 lakh more than Virat Kohli a year as captain.

However, judging by the sponsors and other sources of income, Joe Root is nowhere near Virat Kohli. The route does not earn even 1% of what it earns from huge sponsors and other cases.
