Cricketers are some of the most famous and richest people around. Their fame overshadows many actors and politicians in their respective countries. Having been watched by billions of people throughout their cricketing careers, it is almost impossible for these cricketers to live a simple life after retirement.

The England all-rounder is an omnipresent athlete when it comes to white-ball cricket. His bowling and batting exploits have made him one of the best modern-day players of the current generation.
