MUMBAI: CricketNext announced a new campaign - Jumbo’s Army - with its newly appointed ambassador, Anil Kumble. The contest will pick eleven winners who would stand a chance to fly down to New Zealand to watch the India - New Zealand’s T20 match. To win the contest cricket enthusiasts are required to download the app and pick a team of Indian Test players who made their debut in or after 1990, when Kumble first played for India. Kumble has been designated as the captain of the team so the contestants have to pick 10 other players from this pool. Winners will be chosen from among those who are able to correctly guess Anil Kumble’s dream team or come closest to it. The contest will be live till end of December, 2018.

Talking about the contest, Network 18 Digital – CEO, Manish Maheshwari, said, “Our defining ethos at CricketNext is Where Fans Rule – our endeavor is to always put the fan at the center of what we do which is reflected in the idea for this campaign. This initiative also allows fans to display their knowledge of the game and encourages them to step into the shoes of one of India’s all-time greats – Anil Kumble. We are sure that this opportunity to witness the Indian team live in action would really excite fans across the country”

Gaurav Kalra, the Group Editor – Sports, Network18 said, “We are very excited about this initiative. Anil Kumble is perhaps amongst the most astute, deep -thinking cricketers that the game has ever seen. His team selections would surely reflect his deep understanding of the game – we are all excited to determine if he has included a surprise or two.”

Speaking on the campaign, legendary player, Anil Kumble, said, “I had a great time selecting my dream team. Given the passion with which fans follow cricket in the country, I am very excited about what fans will submit and if they are able to correctly guess my dream team.”
