India vs Pakistan is not an ordinary match irrespective of the level of the match or where it is played. For a huge game like this, a screening event was organized at the Lord of the Drinks, Lower Parel, Mumbai on the 19th of September 2018.
The entire event was organized and managed by Kasakai Mumbai – an exciting community and hobby driven company that gathers people over different social events like match screenings, TV show discussions, etc.
But the highlight of the event was the presence of The Bharat Army at the screening event that generated a tremendous level of excitement in the venue apart from just watching the match. The Bharat Army is India’s No. 1 Official Cricket supporters group. It has become famous in its association with Team India, for its passionate and committed support, traveling around the world supporting Team India for almost 20 years.
Cricket is a sport in India that unites strangers together and this was one spectacular social event. People of different age groups coming together to support their country and celebrating and cheering on every single delivery, made the event memorable. Another unique thing about the event was the types of chants that were coming from the Bharat Army members. They were created exclusively for/about the players and meant to be sung on occasions like this. These jovial chants kept the crowd most entertained throughout the match. Looking at a Team India supporters group like this adds onto the amount of pride that you generate by watching your nation play Cricket at the top most level and win matches.
In the mid-innings break, there were different fan-engagement activities organised such as, Cricket charades and which cricketer am I, to name but a few. The winners of both these games received exclusive Bharat Army merchandise. The venue was covered and filled with the famous tricolour. India winning the match against Pakistan so convincingly was the icing on the cake.
