Australia spin legend Shane Warne was on Sunday named as the brand ambassador of Rajasthan Royals for the upcoming Indian Premier League. Warne, who led Rajasthan Royals to its first and only IPL title in 2008, was the mentor of the side last season. But this year the Australian will be associated with the team in a new role.
Warne went on to captain Rajasthan Royals for four seasons until 2011, after which he retired from all forms of cricket. “I’m very happy to be back with the Royals and I’m grateful to the team and the fans for their constant support.
It was important for us to retain our established values but at the same time develop a new and modern identity. I am already in love with the new look of the team and hope the fans will love it too,” Warne said.
