Indian Premier League 2020 has been taking over the audience with a bang, the buzz for cricket as a sport is only seen elevating by every match. The cricket fever has not only glued the nation to the screen passionately but also has them biting their nails with commendable performances by their favourite cricketers.

People are indulging into online gaming and thus catering to their dream of playing alongside cricketers virtually. In a short span of time, Faboom has made a permanent place among gaming enthusiasts in India.
IPL is known to be one of the fascinating cricket leagues in the world, driving a more profound engagement amongst the sports fanatics. However, during these unprecedented times, people weren’t able to view their favourite series in-person from the stadium, and the matches were decided to be staged behind closed doors. But to the audience’s surprise, Faboom made it possible for them to engage in them by offering a wholesome virtual gaming experience to them where they can leverage their knowledge and skills of cricket, football and other sports. This has positively impacted the brand rapport in the market and further resulted in a substantial uptick in adoption and traction on its website. Faboom has become the preferred choice of sports buffs across the country.
