Yuvraj Singh, who retired from international cricket after an illustrious 19-year-long career playing for the country this Monday (June 10), is about to kickstart a new innings as the brand ambassador for fantasy cricket games of BalleBaazi.com, India's most trusted online fantasy cricket platform.
"I am delighted to be associated with BalleBaazi.com, the ultimate cricket fantasy league. I will interact with my fans on a personal level while competing with them as we select teams comprising of our favourite players," Yuvraj himself was quoted as saying by ANI.
"This is the best platform for passionate cricket fans to test their skills and knowledge related to the game."
Navkiran Singh, Founder and CEO Baazi Games, stated, "Yuvraj Singh is the perfect representative for BalleBaazi.com. It was his strength, determination, and perseverance that helped him and team India lift the world cup; but beyond the field, his battle against a life-threatening disease inspired billions including me."
"Since the first time I saw him against Australia in Nairobi, he's been my cricketing Hero. Yuvraj Singh defines the word 'Champion', we welcome him on board and look forward to this fruitful collaboration."
Much like Yuvraj, the "Player-of-the-tournament" of India's 2011 World Cup victory with 362 runs and 15 wickets across nine games, BalleBaazi.com too offers unique all-round batting and bowling fantasy formats which cater to a wide range of cricket fantasy enthusiasts.
"It's a matter of immense pride to have Yuvraj in the Baazi family. The world knows how Yuvraj brought a paradigm shift in the Indian cricket scene with his 'Never Give Up' attitude for his country," added Saurabh Chopra, Co-Founder and CEO, BalleBaazi.com.
"We, at BalleBaazi.com, boast of similar traits in our core values. We look forward to a long and productive association with Yuvi."
"We belong from Punjab and having Yuvi on board is all the more special because he perfectly exhibits the Punjabi flavour of fun and aggression at the same time with which, we and the audience will connect really well. It's an absolute honour to have him on board!"
