Recently, a tweet was made from the Twitter handle of World Index, in which a list of some of the richest cricketers in the world was given. There were some names in this which surprised everyone and this tweet went viral on seeing it. In such a situation, let us know what is the complete truth of the list of world’s richest cricketers.
Is Adam Gilchrist the richest cricketer in the world?
According to the tweet of World Index, former Australia wicketkeeper-opener batsman Adam Gilchrist has topped the list of world’s richest cricketers. According to the report of World Index, the total net worth of Gilchrist is Rs 3100 crores. At the same time, he had said goodbye to cricket 15 years ago. Whereas in this list, India’s Sachin Tendulkar is in second place with 1400 crores.
In such a situation, the question arises that what is the source of earning of Gilchrist, who said goodbye to cricket last 15 years ago, which is at the first place in the list of richest cricketers. Actually, Adam Gilchrist, who has given this figure by the World Index, is not related to the Australian wicketkeeper in any way.
According to the report of Sports Rush, a businessman named Adam Gilchrist in Australia, who has a worldwide chain named F45 Fitness Center, is one of the richest people in Australia. In such a situation, it has nothing to do with wicket-keeper batsman Gilchrist.
Let us tell you that Adam Gilchrist had appeared in 96 Tests, 287 ODIs and 13 T20 Internationals for Australia. Gilchrist has 5570 runs in Test cricket. At the same time, he scored 9619 runs in ODIs while he has 272 runs in T20 format.
Adam Gilchrist has been a member of the 1999, 2003 and 2007 ODI World Cup winning teams. He was also adjudged player of the match for his blistering 149 against Sri Lanka in the 2007 World Cup final.
