For Indians, cricket is not just a sport but a religion. Every Indian keeps the sport close to their hearts. Needless to say, Indian cricketers earn huge money through cricket and brand endorsements. Their exorbitant earning gives them the luxury to indulge in many passions. In fact, the one hobby that almost all our Indian cricketers share is that of collecting high-end luxury cars. Let’s take a quick look at their luxurious cars.
Popularly known as the God of Cricket, Sachin is one of the most popular sports celebrities today. Apart from the game, he is also very much into luxury cars and has collected a handful of big and small vehicles. Some of the big ones are the names that many know about such as the BMW M5 and BMW X5. He also had Ferrari 360 Modena in his possession that he recently sold off. Though, he did not take long to replace it with Nissan GTR 530.
Fun fact: Sachin Tendulkar also owns Maruti 800, which was his first car. He is truly a humble man.
Virendra Sehwag is one of the popular celebrities known for his unique batting style. He is no more a part of the current Indian Cricket Team but has close connections with it as he is often seen in the commentary box and his twitter feeds are also quite hilarious.
