Gili unveils diamond-studded cricket ball for ICL 'Man of the Series'

Mar '08
After acquiring the sponsorship rights of the Kolkata Tigers, recently, the Gitanjali Group's association with the ICL just got firmer.

In a dazzling event held in the city, the effervescent Gitanjali Group unveiled the Diamond studded cricket ball specially designed by Tesoro. The same shall be presented to the 'Man of the Series' of the Edelweiss 20s Challenge.

The enterprising Gitanjali Group has also designed a new collection, under its sturdy men's jewellery brand Revv by Desire; called “The Captain Collection”. The same was unveiled in a nouveau fashion at the event.

ICL's all 8 team captains, namely Inzaman Ul Haq, (Captain–Lahore Badshahs), Chris Cairns (Captain-Chandigarh Lions), Craig McMillian (Captain-Kolkata Tigers), Nathan Astle (Captain-Mumbai Champs), Marvan Atapattu (Captain-Delhi Giants), Damien Martyn (Captain–Ahmedabad Rockets), Stuart Law (Captain–Chennai Superstars) & Chris Harris (Captain–Hyderabad Heroes) were also present for the occasion.

Speaking on the occasion Mr. Gaurav Marya, Chairman, Gitanjali Group, said, "Gitanjali Group would like to be at the heart of young India.

Cricket in India is more than a sport. It has a cult status, we are glad to be associated with this magnificent game that is the singular most unifying force in a diverse country like India.”

“Cricket in India is considered a religion. What better way to honour our demi-gods then to present them with something that embodies the sentiments and the blessings of every Indian in the form of a diamond studded cricket ball. And a line of jewellery, that reveres the spirit of the game and salutes its heroes” added Mr. Marya.

The Gitanjali Group has come up with a unique way to make the Edelweiss 20s Challenge memorable for the players, by gifting the Man of the Series, the diamond ball. The diamond ball is created with a fine blend of 82.2 gram gold and 30 carats diamond.

The value of this ball is approximately Rs. 30 Lacs. The diamond ball is made using the best quality diamond and the purest gold. Each diamond is studded with finesse, to make the end product look aesthetic adding glitter to the winner's glory.
