Mumbai: Indian cricketer Ajinkya Rahane has launched a digital speaking module called as Unjinks.

Having captained India and Rajasthan Royals andhaving been a part of both team’s leadership group for many years, he givesthe listeners a perspective of how top class sporting teams operate in various situations.
Akhil Ranade who manages Unjinks said ‘We have worked with 5-6 organizations in the last 2 months across a diverse set of audiences. A college who wanted to encourage young sportspersons, a start-up in the kids segment who wanted this session for some of his top customers, a bank who did this session for their retail partners – we are working with various category of clients who would want to associate with Ajinkya for their brand objectives. In a normal situation we were doing these events as LIVE on stage appearances but keeping the current situation at hand, Unjinks provides a very convenient options for brands to engage with a top sportsperson like Ajinkya.’
