He is the leading run-scorer for India in the T20Is, while has been the most successful player for RCB in IPL as well. He has scored 27 tons in tests, and 43 centuries in ODIs, which is an another parameter to judge his consistency. Certainly, he is the most important player for the Indian team and has created a nice brand value around his name by performances.
The captain Kohli secured 19th rank in the HopperHQ’s 2021 Instagram Richlist. The captain earns 5 crore rupees for every promotional post on Instagram.

The top-ranked player was Cristiano Ronaldo who earns around 12 crore per post.
In the list of cricketers, South African cricketers Faf Du Plessis, Ab De Villiers, and Dale Steyn were also named.
