He will take on everything cricket in these no holds barred episodes which will be available on the Yahoo Cricket app and website, along with the official Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages of the app.
"We wanted to make this cricketing season memorable for our users. Indians love their smartphones, and cricket even more! We will keep them connected to every second of the action, on the go. Since the excitement extends beyond the stadium, we wanted to step up the fun there too. The Yahoo Cricket anthem, which will air in partnership with BIG FM, perfectly captures the spirit of the game and what it represents for millions of cricket fans," said Gurmit Singh, VP and MD, Yahoo India.
"The Yahoo team has taken an interesting creative route for the anthem which perfectly matches with the sensibilities of not just cricket enthusiasts but everyone who is upbeat about music. We at BIG FM too are enhancing the buzz around the cricket season with the launch of India's first ever radio and digital web series 'Duck Se Dude'," said Manish Karnatak, Head, Thwink BIG.
"At the back of this, partnering with Yahoo to play their anthem on our platform establishes a stronger connect thereby delivering it to a larger set of audience through our strong network. We look forward to having more such meaningful and impactful associations," Karnatak added. (ANI-BusinessWireIndia)
