Virat Kohli is, without a shadow of doubt, the best batsman in the world right now. Not only is he an amazing athlete, he’s one of the most bankable one as well. He recently beat the likes of Lionel Messi and Rory McIlroy on the Forbes list of most valuable brands among sportspersons.

He also has the most ardent followers on social media. 36 million likes on Facebook, 20 million followers on Twitter and 15 million on Instagram; now those numbers tell you of his social media influence.

And not just that Virat earns a whopping Rs 3.2 crore ($500,000) per promotional post on Instagram according to a report by NDTV.

It is the same amount as football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo makes per sponsored post.

The man doesn’t even need to ever work again with the amount of money he makes just by posting stuff on social media. But that would be a big disappointment for cricket fans wouldn’t it?
