Launched as the Cricket Championship of India during the British Raj, Ranji Trophy continues to maintain its position as the most unrivalled and popular first-class cricket tournament in the country.
As record champions Mumbai go neck and neck with Gujarat, which is eyeing its maiden win, Rooter, the world’s first social platform that connects sports fans and engages them during live sporting events is hosting the high-octane match on its widely popular app. This will give cricket fans a chance to immerse themselves in the unbridled excitement of watching their favourite game at its finest while indulging in some highly enjoyable live interaction with other sport fanatics.
Ranji Trophy final, which has begun at the Holkar Stadium in Indore on Monday, is seeing the domestic behemoth Mumbai, winner of the tournament 41 times in its 83-year history, take on Gujarat, playing its first final in 66 years. This eagerly-anticipated David vs Goliath clash has cricket buffs across the country waiting to find out if Gujarat, which has never won the tournament, will be able to stop defending champions Mumbai from conquering the title yet again!
By hosting the much-awaited finale, Rooter is bringing back the excitement into domestic, first-class cricket which is often eclipsed by more marketable formats such as the T20. Its prediction game during live matches will further add fillip to this vision and will help convert more casual viewers into attentive fans through real-time interactions and predictions. Rooter also displays live scores for matches and allows supporters to discover and connect with others, thereby enhancing the viewing experience for sports fans. Recently, Rooter also showcased the entire Indian Super League season on its app, leading to tremendous traction on its platform and augment viewership numbers for the event itself. Hosting the Ranji final is a part of its overall endeavour to turn the spotlight on Indian sporting events which are as exhilarating as their international counterparts.
Speaking on the move, Piyush, Founder & CEO, Rooter, said, “Ranji Trophy has given birth to some of the most formidable legends of the Indian cricketing world. It has been a platform for high quality and technically superlative play. However, over the years, the tournament has been overshadowed by other formats that are more easily consumed. We, at Rooter, believe that test and first-class cricket in India has its own undisputed place in the world of sports. While very few digital and social platforms have managed to capture their true essence, we are committed to showcasing the best of domestic sporting events and engage fans in ways that help them rediscover how electrifying these events can be.”
A first-of-its-kind, mobile-based platform, Rooter offers sports fans a chance to interact with one another across real and virtual worlds through social interactions and gamification from devices they are constantly connected to.
