The Anchor: 5 IPL players brands can ride on this season

1. Sachin Tendulkar:

Good ole Sachin is the God of cricket even if the man himself has been telling everyone around that he is just Sachin. With his 100th 100, brand Sachin is in news. His handing over the baton of Mumbai Indians to Harbhajan Singh to concentrate on the game once again shows that for Sachin the game always remains his utmost priority. He is dependable, trustworthy and what we call ‘lambi race ka ghoda’ which he has proved time and again.

 

2. Mahendra Singh Dhoni:

Captain Cool has a lot riding on his shoulders. Having led CSK to re-create the IPL magic and win IPL 4, all eyes are him once again. MSD is picture of poise under duress and that’s a great attribute that brands can cash on.

 

3. Chris Gayle:

Return of the prodigal, that’s how Gayle’s IPL 4 stint can be aptly summed. He entered RCB last year as a replacement in the middle of the series and then created ripples by leading his team to the finals. This year Mumbai Indians were keen on having him on their side though RCB managed to retain him. Being among one of most recognized and popular players of IPL, his brand equity is currently high, which brands can benefit from.

 

4. Virat Kohli:

The 23-year old is already hot choice for brand endorsements. Being touted as dream player for ODIs, Kohli is being projected as a youth icon. He is endorsing around 10 brands including PepsiCo, Fair & Lovely, Titan Fastrack, TVS Sports Motorcycle among others. He still is behind Sachin and MSD in terms of number of endorsements so brands get on the Kohli brandwagon.

 

5. Lasith Malinga:

The Sri Lankan playing for Mumbai Indians has created quite a stir with his unruly locks and fierce bowling style. He is amongst the most popular faces of IPL and his quirks and style only adds to his appeal. Malinga, the name is enough for brands to get instant recognition.
