Patna, May 9: West Indian cricketer Chris Gayle was on Wednesday (May 8) named brand ambassador of Patna-based real estate company, Agrani Homes.
The announcement was made by company's Chief Managing Director Alok Kumar at a function here. In his brief speech, Gayle expressed happiness over his association with the company active in Bihar, Jharkhand and National Capital Region.
The big-bodied Jamaican, however, refused to talk about cricket. Gayle recently set a new record for the fastest century in the history of the game which came off just 30 balls for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL, and then went on to make the highest score ever in Twenty20, ending unbeaten with 175 off 66 balls.
A large crowd had gathered at the venue, a leading hotel here, to get a glimpse of their favourite cricket star. The fans also thronged the airport and the residence of JD(U) Legislative Council member Sanjay Singh, who is also associated with the real estate company, on the arrival of the hard-hitting batsman.
