The world's no.1 ranked batsman in Tests and ODIs, South Africa's AB de Villiers has signed on as MRF brand ambassador.
MRF’s Chairman and Managing Director Mr. K.M. Mammen formally handed over the agreement to the cricketer at the MRF office in Chennai in October.
The popular South African ODI captain is the latest in an elite line of batsmen who have been associated with India's biggest tyre-maker and expressed his excitement about the partnership.
“MRF has become one of the biggest names in cricket worldwide, and I look forward to making an important contribution to the company. It is also a great honour for me, as a proud South African, to be associated with such a successful Indian company, which is one of the largest manufacturers of tyres in this part of the world.”
The association means AB de Villiers will endorse MRF products and services in advertising campaigns and promotional programmes over a period of three years.
