Top 5 Expensive Cars in Indian Cricket’s Garage: Indian cricketers are among the highest paid athletes in the world. The modernization of the game and the rise of digital media has resulted in the board being offered insane amounts of money from the broadcasters who pay their highly regarded players.
The high-profile Indian cricketers, who have a huge fan following, also receive lucrative sponsorship deals from sponsors and brands. Someone like Virat Kohli, the former India skipper who is the most followed Indian celebrity on Instagram, charges around 7 crores for one Insta post for endorsing a brand.
This huge income of the cricketers allowed them to buy the most luxurious cars and make their garage shine.
Here are the top 5 most expensive cars of Indian cricketers:

This exorbitantly priced car takes just 5.2 seconds to reach 100 km/h and can reach a maximum speed of 183 km/h. It’s no surprise that Sehwag, who used to score at a much faster pace than most openers, has this super-fast silver model beauty.
