The team will be live-streaming special shows on Glance, and post original short videos on Roposo, throughout the ongoing IPL 2021 tournament that kickstarted on 9 April.

As part of the deal, cricket enthusiasts can also share uploaded short videos by their favourite players from CSK, on Glance and Roposo apps.

“CSK has been among the tournament’s top contenders, year after year, just as Glance and Roposo have been going from strength to strength with each passing year. We are proud to bring 120 million Indians closer to a dream team like CSK, both on Glance’s lock screen and through their short videos on Roposo." Chowdhury added.
