Actor Keerthy Suresh has been named the goodwill ambassador for women's cricket in Kerala. The popular South Indian star launched the online sale of tickets for India's November 26th T20I against Australia in Thiruvananthapuram.
The Kerala Cricket Association (KCA) said it is the first time they have brought on board a brand ambassador for its women's team.
The actor also felicitated Kerala's only national team player, Minnu Mani, at the function in the state capital.
Minnu, who was part of the Indian team that bagged the gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games, was presented with a cash award of Rs 5 lakh.
In July, Minnu made history by becoming the first Kerala player to wear Indian colours. She was part of India's tour of Bangladesh for a T20I series.
