The popularity of Cricket in India has made it the most financially rewarding sport in the country. BCCI, the Indian cricket board, is the richest board among all the cricket boards in the world. As a result, BCCI has managed to give handsome salaries to Indian cricketers. BCCI had recently released the annual contracts for the Indian men’s national team for 2020-21. The list had 28 Indian players who were allotted contracts between Rs. 1 to Rs. 7 crores.
Other than the BCCI contracts, Indian cricketers also earn huge money through IPL deals. The T20 domestic tournament of India is the biggest cash-rich league in the world. Brand endorsements also enable Indian players to earn huge sums of money every year. With such huge salaries and earnings from playing cricket in India, many cricketers have managed to purchase lavish homes for them and their family. Here we take a look at Indian cricket team players and their lavish houses.
Indian Cricketers And Their Lavish Houses
Although MS Dhoni has retired from international cricket, he is still an active part of India’s most popular tournament Indian Premier League. MS Dhoni and his family used to stay in a three-story apartment in Ranchi earlier. Now the family has shifted to a marvelous farmhouse, named Kailashpati.
The farmhouse is situated at Ranchi’s Ring Road and has all the lavish amenities. The house is built on seven acres of land and is valued at Rs. 6 crores. It comprises an indoor stadium, a swimming pool, a net practicing field, a huge garage, a gymnasium, and even a five-star hotel is present inside the property.
The property has a lot of greenery inside it and also comprises a beautifully landscaped garden and a huge lawn. Last year, MS Dhoni spent a lot of time at this farmhouse when the cricket activities were stalled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In his free time, MS Dhoni loves to spend time at his farmhouse with his family and pets.
Other than Ranchi’s farmhouse, MS Dhoni is also reportedly going to buy a house in Mumbai. Last year, his wife Shakshi Dhoni had shared a post on Instagram of an under-construction house in Mumbai. She captioned the post, ‘New Home’. Have a look at the post below.
