Shikhar Dhawan, fondly called as 'Gabbar', joined CREX, the No. 1 top free app in Google Play Store under Sports category, as their new brand ambassador.  

The popular cricket app, which has 4.6 stars in Play Store and over 50 million downloads, has launched a new campaign named 'Cricket Ka Gabbar', and who else than Gabbar himself to lead the charge.

"We are excited to have Shikhar on board as our brand ambassador. We’re inspired by how Shikhar has ruled the game as a left-arm opener in international cricket for India," Purushotam Rawat, the founder and chief executive officer of CREX, said in a statement.

Dhawan, one of the most successful Indian openers in white-ball cricket, is currently playing IPL 2024. There, the 38-year-old is captaining Punjab Kings, who have won two matches and lost four thus far in the competition.

"His ability to lead the game in the most challenging situations and come out as a champion resonates with our brand’s core values. He’s also popular amongst the fans by the name of ‘Gabbar’ and ‘Mr ICC’ which is consistent with Crex being the no.1 cricket app in India. With his addition to our team, we hope to further spark the growth of our brand in India," Purushotam added.

Dhawan was a genuine superstar for India at ICC events, having performed for the Men in Blue consistently over the years. 

In all, he has played 167 ODIs, and tallied 6793 runs at an average of 44.11. In addition, the veteran has also represented India in 34 Tests and 68 T20Is, although ODI has always been his favourite format.
