  • Rohit Sharma opens about his first paycheck on Twitter.

  • Rohit is all set to lead Mumbai Indians in the 2020 edition of IPL.

The first paycheck, irrespective of the amount, always holds a special significance in one’s life. It characterises the first step of the journey to the fulfilment of one’s lifelong ambitions and aspirations.


Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma, in a ‘Q&A’ session he conducted on his Twitter account, revealed the amount of his first paycheck and how he earned it.

“How much was your first paycheck worth and at what age did you get it? How did you spend it, with friends or family?” a user asked him on Twitter.


Rohit replied that his first earning was not actually a paycheck but a cash amount of Rs 50 that he got while playing some local matches near his society.

“My first paycheck was actually Rs 50 cash which I won playing a match near my society and obviously it was spent eating road-side Vada Pav with my friends,” replied the right-handed batsman.

In the session, the dashing batsman also picked the Australian legend Glenn McGrath as the one bowler from the past whom he would like to face.


Rohit’s stature had grown by leaps and bounds after going through a treacherous start to the international career when he struggled to cement his spot in the squad.

The 30-year-old has morphed into one of the finest batting talents in the cricketing world, earning a whopping INR 7 crore annually from BCCI alone.

The Mumbai-lad last appeared for Team India in the T20I series against New Zealand in January this year. Rohit was unbeaten on 60 runs of 41 deliveries before a calf injury cut short his innings.


Rohit will be next seen in action for Mumbai Indians (MI). He will be captaining the Mumbai-based franchise in the 13th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) that gets underway from September 19 in UAE.
