Cricket, money and bussiness

It is a well known fact that cricketers make lot of money than any other players in the world.Indian cricketers, having made an enviable name in the world for their records have also made lot of money here. But majority of them, at least in the past twenty years, have invested that wisely and made money work for them instead of they working for money.Some instances are given here for the information of their fans and those interested in business.


The CONTEMPORARY Indian CRICKET IDOL, MR. SACHIN TENDULKAR has earned hundreds of crores of rupees in cricket and through Advertisement. He has joined hands with famous hotelier Sanjay Narang of Mars Group and opened hotels in Kolaba and Mulund in Mumbai.His hotels are named 'SACHINS ' and 'TENDULKAR'S' .These hotels are highly posh,stylish, and provide both veg. and non-veg foods. Separate rooms for little children are also there. Now he has also opened a third hotel in Bangalore, the silicon city of India

For details about Sachin visit:


The ONCE CAPTAIN OF INDIAN CRICKET TEAM, AND AS THE FIRST CAPTAIN WHO BROUGHT WORLD CUP TO INDIA,Kapil Dev is always a heroic figure for Indian cricket lovers.But he is the first cricketer who entered into hotel business in India.This alrounder from Chandigarh in Punjab built a fine hotel in his home city of Chandigarh.Later, he constructed another hotel in Patna, capital of Bihar.In these hotels, not only Indian food, but Chinese, Thai,And Pakistani foods are also served. Apart from hotel business, he also has started a new business of putting up focus lights in stadiums.He also has invested in shares of top class firms.For details, visit:


IN 2002 HE AND ANOTHER INDIAN,STARTED A FINE HOTEL IN NEW-dELHI JOINING HANDS WITH an experienced businessman from Singapore.He was none other than the owner of famous 'Sesso' hotel there.Indian and Italian food,Beer are famous items of this hotel.

Sreeshanth and utthappa

Indian fast bowler S.Sreeshanth and Test player Robin Uttappa and G.K.Mahendra(Ex Ranaji player from Kerala) have jointly established a new type of ‘home stay ‘ hotel. They have beautifully named it as ‘BAT And BALL INN’ .Here, they have exhibited cartoons, paintings and mementos etc, related to cricket and cricketers. Fascinatingly, there is a restaurant in this hotel and that is beautifully named-‘silly point’. This hotel is on the Richmond Road in Bangalore. The trio is planning to establish such hotels in Chennai and Cochin cities. They have a website too. Visit: www.


Fast bowler of India, Mr. Zahir khan also is a successful hotelier. He has his hotel ZK’S at Lulla nagar, in Pune, It is famous for its ‘biriyani’ a favorite non-veg dish in Indian sub-continent.This hotel concentrates more on Non-veg items.Western food is also available here. This hotel has the total area of 4,300 sq.feet.Details are available at www.zk’


How can our hero Mr .Veeroo keep quiet, when all his friends are advancing in such businesses? He too has started and successfully running two hotels one each at New-Delhi and Ludhiana.These are, appreciably vegetarian hotels. A funny point about these hotels is that, here, the food items are named in cricket terms. Eg: Middle order stand, opening chill cuts, Half-century partnership(for meals within Rs. 50).etc. Is it not funny and imaginative?


Just like Sachin, the ‘Hero of Kolkota’ Mr. Saurav Ganguly is also a successful businessman. His ‘SAURAV’S FOOD PAVILLION ‘ is highly luxurious. The Sea fish meal here is priced at Rs.1500/-per meal.

It is quite interesting and appreciable that our cricketers are investing their cricket earnings like this and getting success in business. The legend of previous years, Mr. Sunil Gavaskar has not entered this line. He has developed other businesses.

Apart from such practical businesses. Indian cricketers are also doing some socially beneficial services. Sachin spends fair amount in charity about which he rarely tells. Saurav is constructing a convent school and already running a cricket school

Many foreign cricketers are also engaged in such businesses and earning well. Why should not they? After all, it is their hard earned money. Let us feel happy on their talent and wit.

      Thank you Mr. Kothari.You are right. I think they, especially Sachin and Saurav have kept good financial advisers. So they have made wise investments. But Cricketers of previous generation,like E.A.S. Prasnna,B.S.ChandraShekhar, BishanSingh Bedi, have not used their earnings like this. And, At that time, there was no demand for cricketers in avvertisement field.

      Hi Prasad,

      Kapil, Sachin, Saurav, Sehwag..... your list is long enough. Indian cricketers earned a lot in cricket and invested wisely. They work for money and they put money work for them. This is a good combination for multiplying wealth.

      Thumbs up!
