During his illustrious 16 year (1996-2012) career, Dravid mainly played in the test and ODI formats ( he played just 1 international T20) of the game and even donned the hat of the captain of the Indian team. But his most distinctive performances have invariably been in the test cricket. He also played in the India Premiere League for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the years 2008, 2009 and 2010.  Post retirement from the international cricket, he played in the 2012 IPL captaining the Rajasthan Royals.

Along with all that on his plate, he is involved in mentoring future Olympians and Paralympians for India through his Athlete Mentorship programme.

    Rahul’s reputation as one of the most dependable, ethical and humble cricketers of his time still garners the respect of cricket fans and defines the “Brand Dravid”. He has endorsed more than 14 brands throughout his career including Reebok, Kissan, Pepsi, Bank of Baroda, Castrol, Samsung, Gillette, Max life, Kingfisher and continues to be associated with quite a few. The “Jammy” campaign by Kissan featuring Dravid from the 90s still remains his most memorable one.

Mumbai based finance firm InCred has recently roped him as its Brand Ambassador in Aug 2017.

    His earnings from the coaching engagements are expected to be around 5 crore rupees or more just from the junior teams. Also the Daredevil assignment is expected to have fetched him upwards of 4 crores. All of this is without considering the money coming in from his multiple endorsements and associations with brands. With an extended playing career like Dravid’s, it is no surprise that he has a net worth of around US $23 million.

    1. When someone gets rich by his hardwork all wolves eyes turn on him. Was he a poor no one ever would care rather than looking down on him. If a cricketer or an actor gets rich he earns and he didn’t steep any thing from public. Many prostutute like people criticise rich individuals while supporting those political leaders looting the public wealth without caring the poor. Shame on you!!!

    2. There is nothing to criticise about what R Dravid had done, is doing and is capable to do more in the future. He too can try to make the difference by keeping the love for cricket an (rather any and every) Indian have in their heart. Nevertheless more important is if he is trying to coach and mentor sports person in other field, where is the harm ? Let us see that they (well positioned folks like him regardless of their field and belonging) do their bit for the country in any form or format. Biggest enemy is poverty and anything done to eradicate it is a true Indianisim in every aspect. JAI HIND.

    3. I’m surprised that India is a developeing country but here cricketer and politician onlry are wealthy rather than developed country players….Why!

    4. Match fixers easy way to become millionaires. There is an a son of a [email protected] in big boss who is demeaning common people to boast of his wealth. Who made them wealthy the public, be it a celebrity crooketer or a low criminal politician they owe allegiance to public.
      They make statues of politicians with public money and throw their weight on them.
