Dubai-based Danube Group has signed Pakistani cricket team captain Sarfraz Ahmed as its brand ambassador for Pakistan. A role model for young cricketers in Pakistan, Sarfraz rose to prominence when he led his side to victory at the Under-19 World Cup in 2006. A year later, he made his ODI debut at Jaipur against India.
Under his captaincy, Pakistan has won seven out of nine ODIs and won seven out of eight T20s. Another feather was added to his cap with a spectacular win in the recent ICC Champions Trophy and T20 of Pakistan v World XI. Additionally, he guided his franchise team Quetta Gladiators twice to the finals in the Pakistan Super League.
Rizwan Sajan, Founder and Chairman of Danube Group, said: “I am honoured to sign Sarfraz as our brand ambassador for Pakistan. He is an intelligent sportsman who is full of energy and always maintains a positive attitude. It is a privilege to work with someone who has the same values and passion for excellence as all of us at the Danube. We are delighted to welcome him to our group and look forward to a fruitful and lasting relationship with him.”
With a fond passion for cricket game, Anis Sajan, Managing Director of Danube Group, said: “I know Sarfraz for almost five years and I am glad that this friendship has grown into a relationship with Danube. Sarfraz holds a huge fan following across the globe. He is confident, innovative, versatile, dynamic and full of self-belief; and yet humble and down to earth. All these qualities resonate with our brand. We are very happy to have him as the face of Danube Group in Pakistan for years to come.”
Sarfraz Ahmed said: “I believe that Danube Group is a synonym to hard work. I have been an admirer of the brand for some time now. Danube Group’s success story is also very inspiring. Honestly, it gives me immense pleasure to be part of the group which started from zero and is now one of the UAE’s largest diversified conglomerates with interests in building materials, property, construction and home furnishings.”
