Ahead of Asia and World Cup 2022 Rakuten Viber’s Cricket Fiesta Makes a Comeback

Cricket fans can anticipate a complete roster of activities from Rakuten Viber in the following months like the Cricket Asia Cup Quiz, Cricket Vibes Channel takeovers, special Cricket Talks episodes, and the launch of the long-awaited Cricket Superbot!

Rakuten Viber continues to offer Cricket fans a one-of-a-kind experience with a lineup of enjoyable activities until the end of the year. As the messaging app cements its mark in Sri Lanka’s preferred sport with the Cricket Vibes Channel, Viber is also lined up to have more episodes of Cricket Talks, engaging fan quizzes, and the launch of Cricket Superbot. The new Superbot is an automated feature that will soon be added to the Channel where fans can enjoy Cricket Fixtures, which offers members a first look at upcoming cricket games, live updates, match predictions, and more.

To keep the excitement going, Viber will also have a da daily competition to establish the greatest fan of them all. Fans can earn and gather points by answering Cricket trivia questions correctly and winning thrilling prizes!

This is not the first time that the complimentary app launched multiple campaigns to help the sport of cricket in Sri Lanka – always putting the fans in the middle of it all. Earlier this year, lucky cricket fans got to watch a live stadium match between Sri Lanka and Australia. David Tse, Senior Director for APAC at Rakuten Viber says, “Our earlier cricket campaigns were successful and that inspires us to continue offering fans thrilling activities and features through partnerships like this. Seeing how they react and assist their teams and favorite players not only proves how committed they are to the sport but also proves how eager the Sri Lankan people are. It’s things like that which keep us motivated to innovate and introduce more sticker packs, lenses, special Channel segments, and more. To witness this fanbase grow is beautiful and we are privileged to be a part of it.”

With the expectation of Cricket Asia and the upcoming World Cup in the air, Viber continues to go the additional mile by cooperating with more local Sri Lankan businesses like Crickwire and Mirror Sports. Just like the instant messaging app, these names continue to raise the bar in providing their customers with the best experience. And what better way to display their unified eagerness for sports than with a chock-full celebration of the Asia Cup? One of which is by having specialists take over the Cricket Vibes Channel to talk about predictions and post-game outcomes and performances. On August 20th, 2022, fan-favorite Sri Lankan cricketer, Farveez Maharoof and Bangladeshi sports journalist, Ariful Roney sat down with cricketer, Taskin Ahmed for an exclusive episode of Cricket Talks. Channel members can also look forward to left-handed batsman Bhanuka Rajapaksa and earlier cricketer Lasith Malinga guest starring in upcoming episodes of the Channel segment soon.

Fans can now join the Cricket Vibes Channel and Cricket Superbot to view daily updates, exclusive content, and more.
