The Top 5 International Cricket Captains and their net worth

The game of cricket has undergone significant change in the twenty-first century. The 2007 T20 World Cup was a crucial catalyst in the audience’s desire for a shorter version of their favorite sport. Since then, T20 competitions such as the IPL, BBL, and PSL have emerged, increasing not just the earnings of players but also that of cricket boards.

Furthermore, in order to reach a larger audience, numerous brands have partnered with the cash-rich leagues. These firms have also chosen to bet on certain cricketers, which has resulted in the player’s net worth increases. So, sticking to this theme, here are the Top 5 International Cricket Captains and net worth.
