And according to reports, he receives £ 1 million annually from the English Cricket Board.

Adil Rashid, 32, lives in Bradford, West Yorkshire, and is active in county cricket in addition to the England national team.
"I was surprised to learn that the tax authorities had found me guilty, even though it was a mistake and nothing more," he said.
"You are playing as a player and these matters are left to the accountant," he said.
According to the report, Inland Revenue officials said that tax officers working in the area could be the ultimate liability and it was also their responsibility to make sure that they did not pay tax deliberately and cooperate with them.
"All payments have been made and I have informed the government in this regard," said Adil Rashid.
He said, 'I have nothing to hide, if there is a problem, I will not be one of the concealers'.
"If I am an England cricketer, why don't I pay taxes, when will it end and there is no need to take it personally," said Adil Rashid.
"I was written a letter from HM Revenue and Customs and I gave a clear answer, I have paid taxes but we have to pay some fines, nothing more," he said.
