When considering the top-earning cricket players annually, the names of Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, and Sachin Tendulkar often come to mind. These players possess significant brand value in the market and have secured multi-million dollar endorsements with major brands.
However, it may surprise you to learn that the wealthiest cricketer in the world in 2023 is not Indian, but instead, the former Australian batsman Adam Gilchrist. Remarkably, Adam Gilchrist’s net worth is even three times greater than that of Virat Kohli.
According to the latest report from ‘CEO World Magazine’, Adam Gilchrist has claimed the top spot in the list of the world’s wealthiest cricketers in 2023. The report states that AC Gilchrist’s estimated net worth is $380 million, placing him well ahead of Sachin Tendulkar, who has secured the second position with a net worth of $170 million. MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, and Ricky Ponting round out the top five spots on the list, following Sachin in descending order.
Amidst this, fans are questioning how Adam Gilchrist, who is currently seen on TV screens as a commentator and is retired from cricket, has amassed such a fortune. However, it should be noted that Gilchrist’s wealth is not solely derived from his career as a cricketer or commentator, but also from his successful ventures as a businessman.
The majority of Adam Gilchrist’s income is generated from his business, F45 Training, a fitness center franchise. Gilchrist and his friend Rob Deutsch co-founded F45 Training in 2011, and it has since expanded to over 1750 studios spanning across 45 countries. As one of the top performers in the fitness franchise market, Gilchrist’s business continues to flourish, contributing to his net worth, and cementing his position as the wealthiest cricketer in the world in 2023.
