After several months of the lockdown, we believe that this tournament can be a catalyst in ushering in new optimism and smiles in India, with millions of fans cheering together from all parts of the country."

Cricket lovers will be able to join in the action by expressing themselves using "Hotshots" selfies or a new video feature "Duets" that lets fans create customised videos showcasing their rendition of famous shots.
