Last year’s events were received by fans with great enthusiasm, so we’ve decided to make things bigger and better this year with the Cricket Superbot. It’s a great addition to our already stellar line-up of events and we look forward to celebrating this exciting tournament with the Cricket Channel this year, and hopefully, in the years to come.”

Regarding the campaign former Sri Lankan Cricket Player Lasith Malinga said, “I’ve never experienced anything like this from a messaging app before. I think that just shows how much they care about and take interest in their users’ passions. I hope that the fans will enjoy the games and activities they have laid out for them in the next month.”
