Ahmedabad:Two cricketers from Gujarat, Yusuf Pathan and Ravindra Jadeja on Tuesday joined the Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) as executives (Sports and Culture) at a ceremony organised by the company here.
Both Yusuf and Jadeja were inducted into the company by its group president (corporate affairs) Parimal Nathwani.
"Yusuf and Ravindra need no introduction. Yusuf belongs to Vadodara and Ravindra hails from Jamnagar. Both towns have history and legacy of cricket," Nathwani said.
"We all see a great cricketing potential and future in Pathan and Jadeja. They are colleagues at Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and now they become colleagues at Reliance. They become our executives (Sports and Culture) and join the roll with Parthiv Patel," he said.
Wicket-keeper Patel was the first cricketer to join RIL rolls on June 25, 2004.
