Now coming to the most exciting part of this deal, The Fan Quotient! So what does this partnership mean for a fan like me?

Well they say seeing is believing, hence I’d urge all of you to watch the video below and feel the adrenaline rush:

Now wasn’t that innovative and exciting just like what Nissan stands for – Innovation that Excites! I mean who wouldn’t be surprised to play with a legend from the Indian Cricket Team? How often does your morning walk/jog turns into an encounter with a real life star. The exhilaration to play with Irfan was beyond age groups and gender.

These are really the #MomentsThatCount and it’s great to see Nissan already doing so much for fans. Frankly, I can’t wait to be a part of the fan engagement and activities Nissan will be doing throughout. If you too would like to be a part of it then you can follow on them Twitter & Facebook and keep an eye on the hashtag #MomentsThatCount.

Psst: If you are lucky, Nissan fans get the first opportunity to get close to the trophy, even before its lifted by the winning captain on 3 April in Mumbai.
