The Gulf Champion Banana delivery convoy, made-up of a Gulf-liveried Aston Martin Vantage GT8 and Mitsubishi pick-up, set-off from Gulf offices in Central London, passing by Lord’s – the Home of Cricket – The Oval and Hampshire County Cricket ground in Southampton on England’s south coast, before arriving at their final destination – the Grand Harbour Hotel, Team India’s abode for their World Cup 2019 opener.
The Gulf Oil team delivered a whole truck full of bananas to the hotel with their best wishes for Team India – thus doing their bit to help ensure that the Indian cricket team gets off to a flying start against the Proteas. “Start Mast Toh Din Zabardast” (‘Good thing begin with a good start’) is the credo of Gulf Battery and, therefore, seems very appropriate for this particular mission.
Gulf Pride Battery – a specialist product division of global fuel and lubricant giant, Gulf Oil – followed the progress of the delivery team and filmed the whole adventure. Cricket fans can catch more of this unique initiative on Gulf Pride Battery’s social media channels: Facebook (@gulfindiabattery), Instagram (@GulfBatteryIndia), Twitter (@gulfbattery) and YouTube (@Gulf Battery). Fans can search #StartMastTohWinZabardast or #ChampionBanana throughout the summer for further fun cricket updates over the summer.
Gulf’s love of cricket stretches back over many years and its current brand ambassadors include Indian stars MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya.
The brand is proud to be a shirt sponsor of three-time IPL champions, Chennai Super Kings.
