New Delhi: The skipper of the ongoing ICC World Twenty20 is an undisputed draw for most of the brand endorsements. But do you know which cricketer's bat mints the most money of them all? It is the flamboyant Virat Kohli's bat.
MS Dhoni is way ahead of Kohli when it comes to brand endorsements, but his 'on filed' flamboyance takes an edge over the skipper MS Dhoni in minting money.
Reportedly, Kohli nets in Rs 8 crore to put a Spartan sticker on his bat, while MS Dhoni gets Rs 6 crore for the same.
As per reports, Puma has also entered into a deal with Yuvraj Singh for around Rs 4 crore for the company's branding on the cricketers' bat, footwear and apparel.
Suresh Raina and Rohit Sharma are also said to have bagged around Rs 2.5-3 crore deal to wear Ceat stickers on their weapon of choice.
Brands mostly beeline top cricketers for branding on bats, clothes, kits etc to garner maximum mileage during prominent tournaments like the ongoing ICC World Twenty20.
