His superstar status as a renowned cricketer managed to score Rabada a spot on TAG Heuer's list of ambassadors.

The SA speedster joins huge international personalities as a TAG Heuer ambassador, including model Bella Hadid, Thor actor Chris Hemsworth and American football star Tom Brady.

Other superstars who represented the Swiss watch giant were Lewis Hamilton and Cristiano Ronaldo, just to name a few.

The South African reported tennis star Maria Sharapova was also an ambassador until the brand dropped her after she admitted to doping.

Rabada's outstanding national and international performance scored him the deal. He held the ICC ODI's number one bowling spot and he then went on to top the individual rankings in test cricket.

His talent also helped him lock down a spot in the 2018 IPL with the Delhi Daredevils, making him one of the highest paid SA cricketers in the series.

As Briefly.co.za reported previously, the 22-year-old South African bowler was offered a whopping R7.7 million to play for the Delhi Daredevils.

However, a lower back stress fracture caused him to sit out the tournament, with England's Liam Plunket replacing him.
