Virat Kohli becomes the only cricketer to be in Forbes’ top 100 highest-paid athletes list
Virat Kohli has caught limelight after being the only cricketer among top hundred athletes featuring in the Forbes’ newly released list of highest money-makers.
Surprisingly, on comparing to the last year Forbes’ list, Kohli has jumped 30 spots above in the newly released list which undoubtedly is a massive jump.
Kohli has been leading his side wisely and made many times to the winning points, however, his form and captaincy are the factors that, nowadays, are going through a lot as Virat Kohli, after being a good player, has failed to make in the final stages of the ICC events.
