As the second season is just around the corner, fans of the league have the chance to get a first-hand taste of the Box Cricket mania with the launch of its official game.

​Virtually stepping in the shoes of their favorite celebrities, the official game allows fans to play challenges in their favorite team and celebrity’s avatar. Fans can choose to play the game as Rannvijay Singh from Chandigarh Cubs, Sara Khan from Rowdy Bangalore, Shakti Arora from Kolkata Baabu Moshayes, Divyanka Tripathi from Pune Anmol Ratan, Karan Wahi from Delhi Dragons or Kamya Punjabi from Jaipur Raj Joshiley, Nandish Sandhu from Ahmedabad Express, Ritvik Dhanjani from Chennai Swaggers, Rashmi Desai from Lucknow Nawabs and Mouni Roy from Mumbai Tigers among many others. The game is available on both, Android and iOS (launching soon) platforms in two modes – Endless Mode and Challenges Mode.

The official Box Cricket League game, powered by Hungama, India’s first and largest on-demand digital entertainment destination, is a fast paced cricket game where you can take up challenges as a batsman, eventually powering the team to victory. It is a side-view game which begins with the batsman ready in his stance. The number of runs scored will depend on the timing of the shot played. In the process, players will also win coins as they win more matches, which can then be used to buy power-ups. Box Cricket League mania will hit fans virtually as they can keep score over their leaderboards.

The launch of the official Box Cricket League game was held at Link Room Banquets, the official Venue Partners, in Bandra West.
