New Delhi, Aug 21 (IANS) Imagine the power to decide the playing XI and the captain. If that is not enough, you can also play a role in deciding who gets to bat at the fall of every wicket and bowl every over, all in real-time as a live match unfolds. It may sound unbelievable but that is what The Selector App will make possible!
Come September 1, when Pollard XI faces off against Bravo XI in Port of Spain, this an unprecedented, revolutionary concept called The Selector App will make its grand debut. This unique app was launched on Wednesday by brand ambassadors Virender Sehwag and Brian Lara.
Through the Selector App, ardent fans of cricket will now be empowered with the responsibility of having a say in the match. Just by downloading the app, avid lovers of the game will get a chance to be a part of a revolution called the Fan Decision System (FDS).
“We are so passionate about our favourite teams and at times are left frustrated with decisions taken. This app not only gives fans the power to make their own team, but to take decisions for them, as it’s not fantasy cricket anymore, but reality,” said Nalin Khaitan, Vice Chairman, Khaitan Holdings Group (KHG), who envisaged and conceptualized the app.
The swashbuckling Nawab of Najafgarh, Virender Sehwag won the hearts of millions of fans through his fiery batting. Sehwag will now try to bring the game closer to fans by being the very first Selector.
“This is a very, very unique app. Fans feel that there is nobody more knowledgeable than them when it comes to cricket. It is time to put that theory to the test. The Selector App can also help to make the game far more lively and exciting. This will surely take cricket watching and fan support to the next level that will set a benchmark for other sports to learn from,” Sehwag said.
