Mahendra Singh Dhoni no longer plays the cricket test. Hardik Pandya was absent from the Indian cricket team due to injury. But the incredible Indian cricket duo have teamed up to deliver an exceptional performance for Star Sports on the brand’s pitch.
Star Sports announced the signing of Hardik Pandya with an impressive video, where Dhoni welcomes Pandya to “another team” – the Star Sports team. The duo performed on camera with a professional touch similar to their cricket skills.
The video, courtesy of Star Sports, recorded over a lakh of hits within 15 hours of posting to Star’s facebook page.
Dhoni has already played with aplomb to promote the Vivo Pro Kabaddi League which is broadcast live and exclusively on Star Sports. India’s premier channel network holds the majority stake in the league under its subsidiary Mashal Sports.
The PKL has come out of a mid-season slump to earn better ratings from the Broadcast Audience Research Council of India than Australia-India Test cricket over the past three weeks.

This is Pandya’s second association with Dhoni on a brand promotion pitch. The duo supported the American multinational lubricants brand Gulf Oil.
