Pepsi IPL reaches out to fans through Fan Park initiative

As a part of the ongoing initiatives to bring in newer audience through IPL, especially families, BCCI will be investing in Fanparks across the country this season.

In addition to the 12 venues hosting the matches? this season, Pepsi IPL 2015 will be taken to 15 cities across India through the Pepsi IPL Fan Park initiative giving the fans living far away from the live action relive the excitement and atmosphere that comes with watching an IPL match with friends and family in a public location.

Over 10,000 + fans in each of these cities will have a stadium-like experience on the weekends throughout the tournament as the matches will be ?made available on giant screens. Entry will be free and on a first-come-first-serve basis. With access to food and beverage stalls and music the fans will be able to feel like they are in the stadium. There will also be special areas earmarked for women and children.

Matches featuring all eight Pepsi IPL franchises will be screened at each venue, thereby enabling the fans to watch and celebrate their favourite teams and players.

Pepsi IPL Fan Park venue will be opened 2-4 hours before the start of the match in order to give the fans the chance to experience the pre-screening activation.

Venues have been chosen keeping in mind accessibility and connectivity, particularly for families and in close coordination with the broadcast partner Sony Max.

"T20 provides the perfect platform for us to grow the game and taking it to newer venues. During the summer months Fanparks will provide it an ideal outing for families. The Pepsi IPL Fan Park aims to bring the match venues to those who have not been able to watch a cricket match from the stands in a stadium so far. It will enhance the experience of viewing and following the game for thousands of loyal fans. We are working closely with all the state associations of BCCI as well as our broadcast partners and sponsors in delivering this. We are creating a scalable model with plans to add more centers in the years to come. I expect fans to turn up in large numbers and enjoy the cricket with their friends and family" said Anurag Thakur, Hon. Secretary, BCCI

The Pepsi IPL Fan Park screening schedule is given below.

The exact venue in each city will be informed in few days.

Comfortable win for India against England in Cardiff

http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2014/8/Raina-Celebrates.jpg

Suresh Raina helped India claim first blood in the one-day international series against England, hitting an impressive century in the tourists' rain-affected 133-run victory in Cardiff.

England made a promising start, reducing India to 19-2, and then curbing India's mid-innings revival, with James Tredwell dismissing danger men Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane after they had put on 91.

But as soon as MS Dhoni, coming in at 132-4, found his bearings, the complexion of the Indian innings - and the match - changed.

India's captain hit a run-a-ball half-century before being bowled through the gate by Chris Woakes in the penultimate over, while Raina, his partner, scored a magnificent 74-ball 100, holing out to James Anderson at deep cover the delivery after reaching the milestone, as the tourists finished on 304-6.

It was a miserable match for England's Chris Jordan, who conceded 12 wides in his 10 overs, which cost 73 runs.

Tredwell (2-42) and Woakes, who took four for 52 runs, were the pick of the England bowlers.

But their batsmen, chasing a revised target of 295 from 47 overs, never looked comfortable from the moment Alastair Cook was dismissed after putting on 54 in good time with fellow opener, ODI debutant Alex Hales.

Wickets, like the rain, fell at regular intervals thereafter, and India completed a comprehensive victory by bowling England out for 161 in 38.1 overs, Ravindra Jadeja taking four for 28 runs, to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.
