Much like the rest of the world, the year 2020 has been grief-stricken for India. The coronavirus pandemic induced a nationwide lockdown for many months, which ended up severing the country’s economy. In his letter to 2025’s Virat Kohli, the Indian captain reflects the year 2020 and remembers all the frontline warriors who are fighting the pandemic that continues to plague the nation. As evidenced from the ending of the clip, the video appears to have been shot in July 2020 and was shared only two months later.
According to Forbes, the Virat Kohli net worth figure from the past year is estimated at ₹196 crore ($26 million). Moreover, his overall net worth is estimated to be around ₹900 crore ($119 million) according to multiple reports. A major part of his net worth comes from his own business investments and endorsements. The Virat Kohli net worth also comprises his earnings from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) as an active Indian cricket player, which is ₹7 crore ($925,730) per annum.
The Virat Kohli salary figure lies around ₹24 crore ($3.1 million) per year considering, that he earns ₹17 crore ($2.24 million) per season from Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in IPL as well. Apart from his IPL contract, he also rakes in the big bucks through endorsing brands like Audi, Flipkart, Google, Hero MotoCorp, Puma, Uber and Valvoline.
Virat Kohli is now slated to reprise his role as captain of the RCB franchise in the upcoming IPL 2020 season. He will be joined by several of his RCB colleagues like AB de Villiers, Umesh Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal. Here is a look at the entire RCB squad for IPL 2020.
