Rahul joins Indian skipper Virat Kohli and a line-up of athletes. The association has been facilitated by Cornerstone Sport, which exclusively represents Rahul and Kohli.

Earlier, captain Virat Kohli had sparked off speculations by asking Jamaican legend Usain Bolt to guess the name of the player.

Commenting on the association, Rahul said, “Choosing to exclusively partner with a sportwear brand is an important decision and we have hit it out of the park with this association.

“As a cricketer I am constantly striving to be one step ahead in the game both on and off the pitch and PUMA, the forever faster brand, shares the same goals and values. It will be amazing to work with PUMA and join their impressive portfolio of athletes and super stars.”

He also thanked Virat Kohli and Usain Bolt for the welcome.

PUMA India MD Abhishek Ganguly said, “Rahul is a world class athlete who inspires today’s youth with his performance and style. He is a perfect fit for the brand due to his exceptional performance on field, effortless style off field and his penchant for fitness.

“His personality is in total sync with PUMA’s brand ethos and we are very happy to associate with him and kicking off this exciting partnership together.”
