Historic viewership for a historic series

After the entire world endured months without live international cricket, the West Indies “Men In Maroon” set out on a historic tour to England which heralded the return to live cricket in the #raisethebat Test Series.

The world watched on as the two teams braved a global pandemic to live, train and play in stringent bio-secure conditions.

Although, there were no fans physically present, cricket lovers around the world were evidently glued to their TV screens. From Virat Kohli to Sir Viv Richards, many chimed on social media as cricket was officially back, thanks to England and our Heroes in Maroon.
