Mastercard endeavours to enhance its strong international base of sponsorship assets across passion points with uniquely Indian ones. Mastercard has worked to amplify this passion area with the signing on of MS Dhoni, the former Indian cricket captain, as its brand ambassador over four years ago. The synergies envisaged between Mastercard and Indian Cricket will be mutually beneficial for the sport, its fans and for the brand during this tenure.

Dhoni has been the brand ambassador for four years with Mastercard and he was more than thrilled with the deal. He said, “Cricket has been my life and given me everything I have. I am thrilled that Mastercard is sponsoring all the home cricket matches of the BCCI, and especially the domestic, junior and women’s cricket. The Ranji and junior players of today will play for the country tomorrow and continue to embody the pride of 1.3 billion Indians.”

Mastercard’s deal will come into play on the international scene starting with the home series against Australia and South Africa. Meanwhile, the Indian domestic schedule kicks off and Mastercard will first feature in the upcoming Duleep Trophy, starting on September 8.
