New Delhi, October 24: Washington Sundar, currently recuperating from an injury that he suffered during a warm-up game for India in England, said he is confident of a quick recovery and finding his way back to Indian team at the earliest.
The injury robbed Washington of two big events, the Test series against England and the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021.
“I want to play Test cricket and want to open for the team. I am looking forward to it,” said Washington as he attended Puma’s mega store opening here along with a few other notable international athletes like legendary boxer Mary Kom.
The injury has come as a big set back for Washington as he is not even playing for the Tamil Nadu team in domestic cricket at present.
It will be tough for him to find a place in the India side for the home series against New Zealand as the off-spinner has little match practice behind him.
However, Washington is quietly confident and now wants to see India performing well in the T20 World Cup.
Commenting on the launch of the store, Abhishek Ganguly, Managing Director, PUMA India and Southeast Asia said, “It has always been our endeavour to not only create an immersive shopping experience around the brand and the products, but also strengthen our market relevance by staying ahead of the curve in the smart retail era.
“Coming up with our flagship store in Delhi-NCR is a testimony to our commitment to athletes and fitness enthusiasts that the region promises. We are equally committed to providing the best digital experience as part of both our offline and online retail channels.”
PUMA athletes Mary Kom, Rupinder Pal Singh and Washington explored the store, browsed the collections and indulged in experiential activities.
“As a sportsperson, I rely on products that are comfortable and breathable and PUMA is a perfect fit. The experiential store by PUMA offers a wider range of styles that effectively combine technology, function and fashion.
The unique shopping experience coupled with a quick race on the Formula 1 simulator in the gaming zone at the store is easily the best form of retail therapy closer home,” said Mary.
