Ronaldo has signed the most expensive deal in the sports world. On signing this deal, Ronaldo will earn Rs 1800 crore every year.
The world's most famous football player Cristiano Ronaldo has once again come into limelight for his earnings. Ronaldo left Europe's football club Manchester United and joined Saudi Arabian football club Al Nastra. The deal between Ronaldo and Al Nastra is being seen as the most expensive deal in sports across world. With this, the debate has started again that in terms of earning, cricket does not stand anywhere in front of a game like football. Ronaldo will get 1800 crore rupees every year to play on behalf of Saudi Arabia's club Al Nastra. But the highest earning player in the world's richest cricket league IPL will have to play cricket for almost 150 years to earn this much money. It is clear from this figure that no matter how popular cricket has become all over the world, it still has a long way to go to stand equal to football. Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja are the players who have been playing since the first season of IPL cricket. Rohit Sharma is at the forefront in terms of earning in india. Rohit Sharma has earned Rs 178 crores by playing 15 seasons of IPL cricket. If its average is taken then Rohit Sharma earns around Rs 12 crore every year by playing IPL. So Rohit Sharma will have to play IPL for 150 years to earn Rs 1800 crores. Talking about other players, Dhoni has earned Rs 176 crores by playing 15 seasons of IPL. Whereas Virat Kohli has earned Rs 173 crores by playing 15 seasons of IPL. Ravindra Jadeja has earned Rs 109 crore from IPL cricket. There are only seven players who have earned more than Rs 100 crore from IPL cricket. One thing is clear from this that no cricketer can earn as much in his entire career as players like Ronaldo and Messi earn by contracting with a club in a year. The earning of the costliest player of IPL is just Rs 18 crores. To match Ronaldo's one year's earnings, that player will also have to play IPL for 100 years.
