India’s leading online skill gaming company, Games24X7 has announced the two talented young Indian cricketers, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shubman Gill as the new brand ambassadors for its renowned fantasy sports platform, My11Circle.
Speaking on the association, Bhavin Pandya, Co-Founder and CEO of Games24x7 said, “We are thrilled to welcome Shubman Gill and Ruturaj Gaikwad to the My11Circle family. With an impressive track record, Shubman and Ruturaj have created a distinct position for themselves in the Indian batting line up. Their performance on field resonates with My11Circle’s performance off-field where the brand has carved a spot for itself in fantasy sports within a short span of time, witnessing a 100 per cent growth last year. One of the reasons for our success has been our ability to engage and connect with the enthusiastic Indian cricket fans by valuing and rewarding their skill and passion.”
Following this agreement, Gill and Gaikwad will be featured in several My11Circle campaigns across TV, digital and social media handles.
Last year, after being released by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Shubman was picked by one of the two new Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises, Gujarat Titans (GT). The 22-year-old made a name for himself in the ICC Under 19 World Cup in 2018 after a splendid performance, which helped India to clinch the title.
Shubman Gill said, “I’m very excited to be a part of My11Circle, a platform that offers access to so many people around the country to deeply engage with their favourite sport.”
On the other end, Gaikwad made his IPL debut in 2020 for Chennai Super Kings (CSK). The youngster showed a spark in the same season in the UAE by scoring 204 runs in just six innings. The 25-year-old exploded in the following season after smashing over 600 runs and winning the Orange Cap. He was retained by CSK last year in the IPL 2022 retention for INR 6 crore.
Commenting about his association, he said, “I’m really honoured to be part of such a wonderful fantasy sports platform and privileged to join my fellow mates Shubman and Siraj as a brand ambassador of My11Circle.”
Gill will be seen on the field on March 28 when GT faces Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) while Gaikwad will commence his campaign on March 26 when the defending champions face the 2021 runners-up, KKR.
