Being the only sportsperson to be featured in the Forbes list, the 29-year old Indian Cricket team skipper is ranked at 83rd with the earnings of USD 24 million. On 2018, BCCI (The Board of Control for Cricket in India) named Kohli as one of just five players to receive the newly created A+ contracts, which guaranteed an annual retainer of more than USD 1 million. In a statement, Forbes said, “Yet like the Indian cricket mega-stars who have come before him, Kohli’s big payday comes off the pitch, where he was partnered with top brands such as Puma, Pepsi, Audi and Oakley.”
