The Mega Cricket Mela, Indian Premier League 2018 started a couple of weeks ago and will go on for next 5 weeks across the country. Most people follow the scores on the go, according to a recent survey, 93% check scores while they travel and most of the fans would be having poor internet connection while traveling.Keeping this in mind, ixigo has leveraged its ability to work seamlessly even in low network connections and added an IPL scorecard to the home screen of the ixigo Trains App. Travelers can now check live scores while they are on the go, with ease. According to the survey, about 46% cricket fans have traveled to another city to watch their favorite team play and 57% Indians support a team that doesn’t belong to their home city. Chennai proved to be the favorite team and Eden Gardens the most popular cricket stadium. This survey was conducted among 2000+ cricket lovers across the nation.
Commenting on this, Rajnish Kumar, CTO & Co-Founder, ixigo said, “At ixigo, our aim is to keep solving traveller pain points. With the IPL season at its peak, we thought it would be great to know how we could help our travellers enjoy their favourite sport, even when they are on the move. This survey helped us figure out what they wanted, and we delivered! Checking live match scores while travelling was never simpler. What’s more is that ixigo Trains App users can subscribe to notifications for their preferred match in order to receive live score updates. The best part is that our trains app is optimized to perform seamlessly, even with low network connections.”
