Default Where's money in Cricket?

In year 1999, when i was reading a Mumbai newspaper Indian Express headline saying- ' ten lakh rupees required to play for indian cricket team.' But after so many years, the money must had been raised to one crore rupees perhaps. Which makes it much more impossible to ever get a test cap for india. But as anyone can themselves makeout does such money ever exists or is being used to enter cricket? Cause more than half of indian cricket team players don't even have ten rupees in their pockets! They seem like some poor people factory workers who stand at bus stops, or who sell vegetables etc. These people are called gamadiya cricket team. Such is the poor state of cricket, so is money really exists in cricket or that too is fake? Like it might be some tenders of BCCI in crores rupees for organization etc taken to be as players money. The indian cricket players seem like they never get pay even after five years of playing international cricket. Even their dresses look shabby. So is the money generated in cricket circulated in their players' villages?

Funny that is the weird state of modern indian economy too. Poor men now affords to buy a lassi (sweet butter milk) at the cost of 30 rupees per small tea glass. Which even middle class people couldn't afford to buy. This should be at price just 8 rupees. Even other common commodities things too. What should economy say then theres no price rise and neither there is inflation!

Long back india cricket team (BCCI) was captained by nawab pataudi. Or was the situation same back then too when indian cricketeers were in tatters. I think most indian cricketeers when they say in newspapers that they live in bangalows i think its lies. I think 90% of indian cricketeers come from chawls. And even after they might be getting some pay they still prefer to live in chawls.
Nowdays the newcomer indian cricketeers seem like they come from unknown indian villages where they used to work as pig rearers.
