On Sunday (June 16), one cricket team will take on another at the group stage of the World Cup in England. The teams on Sunday won’t be playing for the trophy. The losing team on Sunday might even end up winning it. But that’s not how an India versus Pakistan match is viewed. The shared history of the teams and the countries will be discussed. Stats will be hurled from both fans (“India has never lost to Pakistan in World Cup,” an Indian fan might boast. “But didn’t India lose to Pakistan the last time they met in England?” a Pakistan fan would retort)
This match, basically, doesn’t need more exaggeration. But this larger than life event will be magnified on 25 Inox screens across 12 locations in India.
According to Swati Singh, a sales manager at Inox, tickets across all centres have been sold out for Sunday. “This is the first time Inox is screening cricket. And the response had been good so far,” she adds.
Inox will be screening all of India’s nine group stage games, the semi-finals and the final to be played on July 14.
