Sachin –Sourav -Rahul: Brand endorsement value in 2004-05

Here is the financial   nitty gritty of a star performer of Indian cricket when he goes for brand endorsement .If  a cricketer  signs a six-month contract worth Rs 50 lakh, the payment will be in three parts (Rs 16.7 lakh every two months). If the cricketer performs well in the first two months, his contract will continue. If he does not, the company has the right to terminate the contract. If the contract ends in four months, the player gets just Rs 33.5 lakhs. If no matches are played during the period, the player has to be paid his entire contract fees.

Annual income from endorsements

Sachin Tendulkar: Rs 3 crore (No performance clause)
Rahul Dravid: Rs 2.5 crore (No performance clause)
Sourav Ganguly: Rs 2 crore a year (No performance clause)
Anil Kumble: Rs 1 to 1.5 crore (No performance clause)
Virendra Sehwag: Rs 1 to 1.5 crore (performance clause)
(Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan lead the Bollywood brigade with Rs 3 crore a year)
