Aircel
Indian Cricket Team Captain MS Dhoni will no longer be seen endorsing Aircel’s latest social networking handset INQ. Aircel is now running a new INQ advertisement which does not feature MS Dhoni .

Aircel was forced to take this step by Maxx Mobile Communications as Maxx had signed MS Dhoni for its advertisement. Mumbai-based company Maxx Mobile Communications, which owns Maxx Mobile brand, immediately took note of the INQ ads and asked telecom service provider Aircel to pull the commercial off air.

According to Mr K Rasool, head, marketing, Maxx mobile,

We have communicated our stand to Mindscapes Maestros, the agency that manages Dhoni, asking them to discontinue the advertisement which has Dhoni endorsing INQ handset as it breaches category exclusivity in the handsets space

In response to the action taken by Maxx Mobiles, an Aircel spokesperson said,

MS Dhoni is our brand ambassador for Aircel. Therefore, he endorses all products and services for Aircel. However, when we were informed by MS Dhoni’s agent that he is endorsing Maxx for IPL, keeping the sensitivity and his honour in mind, we withdrew him from this particular advertisement

David Hussey Catch To Dismiss Paul Collingwood In IPL 3 KKR vs Delhi Match

Some of them are touting this as the catch of the IPL, however, it could possibly be much more than that. The catch taken by David Hussey to dismiss Paul Collingwood was superb at its best.

The ball first went beyond the boundary and was brought back into play by Hussey, after which he jumped back in to take a single handed catch, definitely one of the best pieces of fielding I have seen in a long time. Unfortunately for Kolkata the catch could not save the match and they lost with a huge margin.

Enjoy watching the David Hussey catch to dismiss Paul Collingwood from the KKR vs Delhi match in IPL 3 below through the video.

facebook_ipl_2010_promo

Meenal J. Balar, a manager at Facebook for International growth, recently wrote a blog post on the Facebook blog promoting the sport (cricket) people are crazy about in India and several other parts of the world.

Though Cricket is not as popular as Football (soccer), it definitely has a lot of fan following, and it being promoted on a social network which has more than 400 million users definitely shows where Facebook is heading in the future after it has almost become the number 1 site in US.

Though Meenal did promote several external sites, the main focus was on how users can use Facebook Connect to easily access the site by using their Facebook account.

India is no newcomer to the social networking scene and there are people who use a mix of Facebook, and to keep in touch with friends, but using a sport which is almost touted to be a religion in India is a good move by Facebook to connect with people and grow their user base in India and even around the Indian sub-continent.
