Considered to be one of the most destructive batsmen to have ever played the game, the Nawab of Najafgarh has dropped 17 spots in the 2015 Forbes India Celebrity 100 List. The former Indian team opener, who retired from international cricket in October 2015, says he will play only first-class cricket and the Indian Premier League. Sehwag, who has been awarded India's fourth highest civilian honour, Padma Shri, has endorsed brands ranging from Zandu Balm and JK Cement to Adidas and Boost.
Fast Fact: Sehwag was the first Indian cricketer to be honoured as the Wisden Leading Cricketer in 2008. In 2009, he became the first player, of any nationality, to retain the award.
