"KL Rahul is an Indian cricket sensation, who has always let his hard work and achievements do the talking. He exemplifies the brand belief of trusting your instinct. In addition to being a world-class sportsman, KL Rahul is also the perfect embodiment of the young, discerning Indian man, who keeps it real, both on and off the pitch. We could not have found a more ideal person as our first-ever brand ambassador," said Yogesh Kabra, founder of XYXX.
"I have been wearing XYXX for a while now and have closely followed their growth over the past couple of years. I am excited to be a part of their journey as they continue to scale new heights. XYXX's attention to detail, their ideology and ethos, all backed by innovation that shows in their exceptional product range - all speaks for itself and has been nothing short of extraordinary. This is reflected in their tremendous growth trajectory, their rapid expansion across geographies as well as their fast-growing, loyal customer base," said Indian cricketer, KL Rahul.
