After delivering with the bat consistently for Team India for nearly two decades, former cricketer Rahul Dravid, who turned 46 on Friday, has also been Mr Dependable for several brands.
Fondly called ‘the Wall’ for his solid batting, Dravid has also played his innings well in the advertising world. He has successfully increased the popularity of nearly all brands which have nominated him as the ambassador.
Even today, Dravid is one of the most loved sport celeb faces for top-notch brands, thanks to his splendid career in cricket which was also free of controversies.
From tobacco control campaigns, to Google Pixel, Manipal hospitals, Pepsi, Britannia, Kisan, Max New York Life Insurance, Nikon, Gillette, Asian Paints, Karnataka Tourism and Sansui, Dravid has been the face of several brands.
While ‘The Wall’ made sure his bat did the talking on the pitch, his humility has always won hearts off the pitch too.
A blistering 95 on debut at Lord's made it clear that the lad from Karnataka was special. A solid 180 at the Eden Gardens in 2001, gritty 217 at the Oval in 2002, a beautiful 148 on a green Leeds surface, 233 at Adelaide in 2003, and several other knocks have been crucial in defining his legacy.
