India's captain Virat Kohli has built such a ominous brand across the scale that even his assertive and unwise comments fail to ruin it.

Cars, watches, sports shoes, bikes, clothes, ride services, tires, snacks, health foods, headphones and others, all are based on Kohli's brand value.

Kohli is the world's top earning cricketer and comes in competition with other high-profile athletes such as Novak Djokovic and Sergio Aguero.

However, he could soon replace Mahendra Singh Dhoni as the highest earning Indian Cricketer. Former India cricket captain Dhoni earned $31 million as he promoted lot of brands.

Kohli has a strong social media presence with over 37 million fans on Facebook and is followed by more than 25 million on Instagram and 26 million on Twitter.
