Star India head of sports business Nitin Kukreja said, “Our aim is to consistently re-shape and enrich consumer experience. During this edition, we introduced innovations like the LED stumps; there was increased focus on analytics and graphics to augment consumer engagement. The invitation to the consumer was done via a high decibel ‘Duniya Badlegi campaign’ which generated global level engagement. We are enthused with the positive feedback on the unprecedented production and broadcast effort. This will motivate us further to set even higher benchmarks in the future.”
