Default Rohit Sharma Bagged Rs 1.12 Cr, Anil Kumble Received Rs 48 Lakh In June

In a bid to maintain transparency in its operations, the Board Of Control For Cricket in India (BCCI) released a list of payments (above Rs 25 lakh) made in the month of June. The list reveals the details of the payments made to players, coaches, IPL franchises, cricket boards, host broadcaster among others.


According to the latest list, Rohit Sharma received a whopping Rs 1.12 crore (approx.) - the highest amount received by a cricketer in June. The payment was a share of gross revenue disbursed to the Indian opener for his services during the tournaments played outside India in the 2015-16 season.

While Rohit leads the list, his teammate Ajinkya Rahane wasn't far behind either. The right-handed batsman was paid Rs 1.10 crore (approx.) as part of his share of the gross revenue during the foreign tournaments for the 2015-16 season.

Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was another cricketer who was paid over Rs 1 crore for the 2015-16 season. On the other hand, Anil Kumble who recently stepped down as Team India coach also fetched a lucrative sum of Rs 48 lakh as his professional fee for the month of April 2017.

Among the IPL teams, current champions Mumbai Indians (MI) received Rs 22.86 crore as the second instalment for the tenth edition of the IPL. They were earlier awarded Rs 34.29 crore for winning this year's title. Shah Rukh Khan co-owned Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) bagged Rs 21 crore as second instalment for IPL 10 apart from the prize money of Rs 15.75 crore they received for finishing third this year.

Apart from the IPL franchises, two foreign cricket associations were also compensated for releasing players for the 2016 edition of India's T20 tournament. Cricket South Africa (CSA) received Rs 4.034 crore (approx.), while New Zealand Cricket (NZC) was paid Rs 1.36 crore (approx.).

Back home, Punjab Cricket Association (for hosting India vs New Zealand 2016, 3rd ODI), Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (for India v England 2016, 5th Test), Hyderabad Cricket Association (hosting IPL 10 Final), Mumbai Cricket Association (India v England 2016, 4th Test and IPL 10 Qualifier) and Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (India v New Zealand 2016, 3rd Test) were also compensated.
