Among the rare cricketers to strike it big on the endorsements track well after retirement, Sourav Ganguly is not only drawing in the big brands but has also beaten former teammate Sachin Tendulkar on the ranking tables. With his recent endorsement for Tetley Dada, as he is popularly known, has eight brands in the bag and charges between Rs 1-1.5 crore for a four to five day engagement a year. He ranks third on the list of (playing) cricketer-endorsers, although his fees are significantly lower than stars Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni who charge between Rs 8-12 crore a year.   

Ganguly was much sought after  even when he was in the team with brands like Tata Café and Hero
