Salaries of Indian Cricketers In 2018

Grade B

1. Umesh Yadav – INR 3 Crores

Although he has quick pace to his aid, he is however not that consistent. Without help from the pitch, he is not much of a great bowler.

He has impressed everyone with the new ball in the recent IPL, and would hope his form continues. He has been in and out from the Test squad and needs to improve his talent as there is so much competition.

He has been playing for the limited overs for a very long time and hence is paid ₹3 crores per year for his services.

2. KL Rahul – INR 3 Crores

He is one of the soundest players and is full of skill, but gets fewer opportunities and is unutilised by the team management as they do not wish to use this opening batsman out of his position.

He is one of the best T20I batsmen and has shown his skill in the 2018 IPL and his sublime form will soon be rewarded with a place in all the three formats. He currently draws a salary of ₹3 crores per annum.

3. Kuldeep Yadav – INR 3 crores

The left arm chinaman bowler has proved his efficiency during his brief stint with the Indian team. He is very deceptive in the air and off the pitch and has been impressive in the limited format.

He will play a major role in the 2019 World Cup in England as the English pitches are not known to help finger spinners much, as a result the wrist spinners will hold the key to success. Kuldeep now receives ₹3 crores per year as salary.

4. Yuzvendra Chahal – INR 3 Crores

He is Kuldeep’s counterpart and the duo has replaced the pair of Ashwin-Jadeja in the limited overs format. The crafty leg-spinner outfoxes his opposition with his flight and turn.

The 27-year-old has found much success in IPL, bowling in Chinnaswamy Stadium which is a batman’s paradise. He draws an annual salary of ₹3 crores.
