Mumbai: Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been the highest individual tax-payer in Jharkhand for the financial year of 2017-18, said an income tax official on Monday. Dhoni paid Rs 12.17 crore for the last fiscal year.

“Dhoni had paid Rs 10.93 crore as income tax in 2016-17 but he was not the highest taxpayer in that fiscal,” said chief commissioner of Income Tax, Jharkhand region, V Mahalingam.

According to Forbes, Dhoni is the third highest earning cricketer in India behind Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar. Forbes India’s list of the celebrities with highest earnings in 2017 has listed him at No 8 in the country with estimated earnings of Rs. 63.7 crore.

As per chief income tax commissioner V Mahalingam, Dhoni had paid income tax of Rs 10.93 crore in the 2016-17 financial year. However, he was not the biggest taxpayer from the State back then.

On the field, MS Dhoni’s future remains a point of contention as he did not have the greatest time in England. Jeered by fans, Dhoni’s low scoring rate didn’t please the fans in the second and third ODI. India then went on to lose the series 1-2.

During the England series, Dhoni became the only cricketer to enter 10,000 ODI runs the club with a batting average of over 50. He also became the third fastest Indian to join the league after Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly.

Sachin Tendulkar also suggested that it would be best for Dhoni to decide when he’s done playing cricket for the country – having already retired from Tests in 2014. “The player only has to take the call. A player of his calibre, who has been around for a long time, knows what is expected of him. And where he stands. So, I will leave the decision to him,” Sachin said.

Dhoni recently led Chennai Super Kings to the Indian Premier League title. However, his Team India future has been fodder for speculation after a none-so-bright performance against England in the recent ODI and T20I series.

Dhoni was seen seeking the match ball at the end of the lost third ODI against England in Headingley. This sparked speculations that Dhoni may retire after the series. However, sources in the team management have dismissed the talk as “rumours”.

Dhoni retired stunningly from Test cricket in the middle of India’s 2014 tour of Australia.
