Cricket is one of the biggest sports in the world. It has fans all across the globe. As a matter of fact, it wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that cricket has devotees.
This has lead to a humungous engagement over the last few decades. Thus, the engagement ultimately leads to more revenue and more money. The endgame of this cycle is cricketers getting paid more than what they used to sometime ago.
Thus, all cricketers representing their national side get a huge salary. However, which player gets the highest salary from each team? With the T20 World Cup (WC) nearing, let us take a look at the highest paid cricketer from each team from the T20 WC.
Here’s the list from the T20 World Cup
8) Bangladesh- Shakib Al Hasan: INR 41 Lakh
Shakib Al Hasan is arguably one of the greatest match winners of this era. Seldom would you find an all-rounder as impactful as him. He has been one of the greatest Bangladeshi cricketers of all time.
After a torrid time in 2019 when he was banned from playing international cricket due to well documented reasons, he managed to make a comeback. A lot will depend on the all-rounder if Bangladesh are to have a good T20 WC. Besides, Bangladesh only stand a chance to qualify for the Super 12 stage if they finish in the top two of their group.
Shakib, however, is the highest-paid cricketer from Bangladesh as well. His annual salary is 41 Lakh Indian rupees. The fact that he plays all formats has helped his cause.
