Have Mumbai Indians signed up David Beckham for IPL 2024?
The football legend caught up with the Ambanis — Mukesh and Nita, their twins Isha and Anant, daughter-in-law Shloka and would-be daughter-in-law Radhika Merchant — on Thursday, November 16, 2023.
Becks was gifted a No 7 Mumbai Indians jersey by the Ambanis, who own the IPL franchise.
‘From Manchester’s Red to Mumbai’s Blue & Gold – No.7 BECKHAM #OneFamily #MumbaiIndians #DavidBeckham,’ Mumbai Indians tweeted.
Beckham, who is in India as UNICEF’s goodwill ambassador, was at the Wankhede stadium on Wednesday during the World Cup 2023 semi-final between India and New Zealand.
