There is no definitive answer to this question as it largely depends on the country in which the sport is played, and also the level at which the sport is played. However, some estimates suggest that cricket may be one of the lowest paid sports in terms of average salary. In India, for example, first-class cricketers can earn anywhere between $10,000 and $50,000 per year. This is significantly lower than what top players in other sports such as football or basketball can earn. Even in countries like England where cricket is a very popular sport, first-class cricketers only earn an average salary of around Â£60,000 (approximately $75,000). This again pales in comparison to other sports such as football where top players can easily earn millions of pounds per year. So while there is no definite answer to this question, it seems that cricket may well be one of the lowest paid sports when compared to others.
