After teasing us with Rahul Dravid’s ‘gunda’ behaviour and Olympian Neeraj Chopra’s acting chops, credit card payment app CRED returns with another hilarious ad. This time, it stars none other than former captain and coach of the Indian cricket team, Ravi Shastri.
“I used to be a batsman, but for you, I can be a keeper,” he says as he shows off his party-boy avatar.
For weeks, the cricket legend’s social media activity has had fans wondering what was in the works. And, like most of CRED’s quirky ads so far, this one has delivered.
Shastri even shared the video on social media with a simple caption: “don’t remember any of this.” Cheeky!
Watch the full ad here:
And of course, social media users had a field day.
The new cred ad with Ravi Shastri is legendary. They truly make the best advertisements

Can’t imagine how cred convince ravi shastri, rahul dravid and different stars to do that kind of ads😂

Hats off to Ravi Shastri for embracing his identity all out.
Not many celebs would have been comfortable with doing an ad where they are shown as someone who enjoys their drinks. https://t.co/0O85rkm7Pq

The @RaviShastriOfc CRED ad is the best one so far. All the previous ones have been hits ‘cos they showed these players in their most unlikely avatars (read: Angry RD, Boyband Bowlers, Krazy Kapil)
The Shaz one stands out because it is NOT imaginary. The man is truly a ROCKSTAR!
