German luxury car manufacturer Audi presented Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh with an Audi Q5 on Thursday for his splendid performance in the recently concluded ICC World Cup.
Michael Perschke, Head, Audi India, along with former India all-rounder Ravi Shastri, presented the ace cricketer with the keys to his brand new Audi Q5, a media release said. "It is after 28 years we bring the World Cup home and it is an honor that I have been chosen to be felicitated by Audi as they continue their tradition," said Yuvraj, who made 369 runs and took 15 wickets in the mega event.
"My association with the iconic brand Audi began 26 years ago, when I brought home the country's first ever Audi. I am happy to see Audi India take this tradition forward and continue to recognise the achievement of champions in the cricketing field. With his versatility, consistency, talent and thirst for excellence, Yuvraj Singh has set new benchmarks in the cricketing world," said Shastri, who himself was presented with the car after he was named the Champion of Champions during the World Championship of Cricket in 1985.
On the occasion, Perschke said, "I would like to congratulate Yuvraj Singh on being declared the Man of the Tournament at the ICC World Cup 2011. Yuvraj's performance on the cricket field has made us all proud. Much like Audi, Yuvraj epitomises success and is a reflection of Audi's core brand values of sportiness and progressiveness."
