Indian cricketers are under a lot of pressure, especially the ones, who represent their national teams. Fans and the sides expect a lot from them. They play around the globe and ply their craft in various tournaments. If they do well, they go on to become role models and aspirants look up to them.
The game is also a chance for them to earn big bucks and thereby they lead a luxurious life. They resort to buying some exclusive brands and become trendsetters, attracting the younger generation. The players also add some expensive watches in their collection in order to add to their style statement.
In the article, let’s take a look at 10 Indian cricketers with the most expensive watches
Hardik Pandya- INR 81,00,000
Apart from his prowess on the field, Hardik Pandya is known for his swagger off the field as well. The Baroda all-rounder is pretty active on social media platforms where he keeps on uploading photos, wearing some funky clothes. Back in October, he underwent a back surgery in the United Kingdom.
After the operation, Hardik shared a picture, giving a thumbs up. But Rahul Ganjoo, Zomato’s vice-president, noticed him wearing a Patek Philippe Nautilus watch, which costs around INR 81 lakhs. Ganjoo stated that to avail such costly watches, there is an eight-year waitlist to get on the waitlist.
Mayank Dagar- INR 39,57,000
Mayank Dagar, the all-rounder from Himachal Pradesh, is yet to find his feet on the field at the age of 22. But when it comes to style statement, the Young Turk should be right up there. The Delhi-born player owns a Hublot Big Bang Unico Sapphire watch, the retail price of which is INR 39,57,000.
Last year, Dagar made the headlines after he surpassed Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, in the yo-yo test. Even as Virat recorded 19, Dagar put on 19,3, also overhauling Manish Pandey’s tally of 19.2. He was also a part of the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the IPL, albeit he hasn’t gotten a chance thus far.
Harbhajan Singh- INR 32,87,000

Virender Sehwag- 46,00,000
Virender Sehwag has taken to commentary after his glorious career for Team India in all the three formats of the game.

Suresh Raina- INR 93,92,000
Suresh Raina has played some great knocks, wearing the Indian colours. But somehow, the stylish southpaw hasn’t managed to hold on to his spot in the national team. Having last played for the nation back in July 2018 against England, chances of him making a comeback for India look remote.
He is also regarded as one of the best fielders the country has ever produced. Of late, he went through a knee surgery in Amsterdam. Raina also doesn’t mind owning some expensive matters. He has a Richard Mile RM11-03 watch and it has a retail price of a jaw-dropping INR 93,92,000.
Sachin Tendulkar- INR 42,00,000
Sachin Tendulkar retired from international cricket way back in 2013. But a plethora of his numbers still remain unscathed. The Master Blaster is the only batsman in the planet with as many as 100 centuries for Team India. The veteran also got a T20 century for the Mumbai Indians (MI) in the IPL.
Even after hanging his boots, he kept being a part of the IPL team’s setup. The 46-year-old is no less trendy than some of the young cricketers. Sachin, who’s also the highest run-scorer in international cricket owns a Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar watch, which has a retail price of INR 42,31,000.
Virat Kohli- INR 31,94,000

Virat made his debut back in 2008 and hasn’t looked back. Apart from scoring runs at a heavy rate, Kohli has been successful as well as the skipper of the Indian team. He already has over 20,000 runs at the highest level with 69 tons to his name. At 30, he is speculated to record a number of records.
Rohit Sharma- INR 24,89,000
Rohit Sharma has come up the ranks, especially after being made an opener in 2013. He has been a linchpin of the Indian top order and has shown his class even as a Test opener. Earlier this year, he became the first batsman with as many as five tons in a single edition of the 50-overs World Cup.
