Legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar, who is retiring this month, is the country's wealthiest cricket player with a personal fortune of USD 160 million, according to a Wealth-X estimate.

"Tendulkar has amassed a fortune that eclipses the combined net worth of the four other cricketers on the list, and is more than three times the net worth of the next wealthiest player, Mahendra Singh Dhoni," Wealth-X said.

The list of top five wealthiest cricket players, compiled by Wealth-X, was headed by Tendulkar with USD 160 million, followed by Mahendra Singh Dhoni (USD 50 million), Yuvraj Singh (USD 30 million), Rahul Dravid (USD 20 million) and Virat Kohli (USD 15 million).

According to Wealth-X, a global wealth intelligence and prospecting company, the wealth of Tendulkar "eclipses" the combined fortunes of others on the list.

The 40-year-old former India captain, who stepped down from one-day internationals in December, 2012, would end his career with his final and 200th test match against West Indies in late November.

Tendulkar played his final Twenty20 match in the Champions League T20 final between his Mumbai Indians team and the Rajasthan Royals side led by another former Indian skipper, Rahul Dravid, who made his last competitive appearance on the cricket field during that match.

"Tendulkar is popular across the world, and in 1992 became the first overseas player to sign for Yorkshire, scoring more than 1,000 runs in the summer," Wealth-X said.
