Shaun Pollock achieved immense milestones and achieved many accolades throughout his distinguished career which saw him reach the top spot on the ICC rankings for best test bowler, test all-rounder, ODI bowler and ODI all-rounder. Pollock captained the Proteas from 2000 to 2003 and still holds the record for the lowest economy rate of any bowler to have taken 300 ODI wickets. He was also the first South African and the tenth fastest player to take 400 Test wickets.
"I am honoured to be included as part of the Nissan team and look forward to being associated with Nissan as a brand ambassador," Shaun Pollock said.
"Nissan's partnership with cricket will bring fans closer to the game we all love so much."
KG delivered a stellar performance in 2016, taking a record six awards in the CSA awards, including player of the year, the youngest player to ever achieve this feat. Rabada continues to grow and challenge himself as a player, by making himself eligible for his first IPL tournament this year where he played for the Delhi Daredevils.
"I am so proud that Nissan and I get to continue on our journey - 2016 was a great year, and with a partner like Nissan, 2017 can only be better," Kagiso Rabada said.
"I am committed to delivering the same performance as a Nissan ambassador as I do with the ball in hand."
Rabada has seen equal success in South African Test cricket as he has in the ODI format of the game, taking 71 wickets in 17 matches of which there were two 10 wicket hauls and five 5 wicket hauls. Rabada boasts 7th place on the ICC test bowler rankings which currently makes him the top South African Test bowler.
