7. Money matters
Money and cricket have almost become synonymous. Cricketers in India have always been the richer breed of sportsmen compared to their peers. Be it the salary, prize money or government initiatives. The cricketers have always been ahead in the money race. With the advent of IPL, it was just another opportunity for them to get even richer.
By virtue of being rich, the players can afford to have a better lifestyle, rather a lavish and posh one. This, unfortunately, has not been the case with the players, involved with other sports in India. Money is the most important requirement in any individual’s life. So whenever a career choice in sports is in question, it climbs automatically towards the sport.
