Cricketers hit the headlines for all the right and wrong reasons. Like when they score a century, claim a hat-trick, create a massive record, engage in a titanic tussle during the passage of play, they are given non-stop media coverage.
At the same time, they are paid handsomely for representing the country and they are known to lead a luxurious life. Apart from earning in the international arena, they also get tonnes of bonuses from the cash-rich Indian Premier League. They also get paid through advertisements and for endorsing the brands. To put it in simple terms, earning money for them is as easy as a pie.
Cricketers also love to lead the team by the epitome of class. We just can’t judge their character based on their attitude on the field. They play with passion, pride, grit and determination to win games and in the process, some display sheer aggressiveness. But off the field, cricketers are totally different altogether.
Cricketers are also highly active in personal life despite being busy with national commitments. Stories of cricketers dating models or girlfriends and getting hitched are many.
