Mustafizur now corporates’ dream
Wonder boy Mustafizur Rahman is now the most sought-after cricketer for corporate houses after his majestic performance against India. The line to endorse the pacer is increasingly becoming bigger from telecom companies, bat producers to food companies, ever since he took 13 wickets to help the Tigers beat India 2-1.
The name and fame have poured on the 19-year-old left-arm pacer from Satkhira after his cutters dismantled the vaunted Indian batting line-up and now he is all set to see his bank account swell also.
"Yes, many companies are showing an interest in signing him," admitted his elder brother Mahfuzar Rahman.
Cricketers have enormous commercial appeal in the country. Nowadays big corporate houses like to use cricketing celebrities as brand ambassadors and offer them handsome amounts to push products and promote the company.
Shakib Al Hasan is probably the highest earning professional in the country and most demanded in commercial market, but Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal are also in demand for endorsing products.
The corporate company's interest towards the Tigers boomed after the brand of cricket they played during the World Cup. And the successes against Pakistan and then India exponentially increased the value of the cricketers to these companies.
