UC browser launches UC miss cricket contest to add to its cricket coverage
New Delhi : India’s No.1 mobile browser, UC Browser has launched a new campaign to select UC Miss Cricket, giving its 130 million monthly active users another reason to get on the platform this cricket season. Previous year during the cricket season, consumption of cricket-related content with UC Browser clocked 0.75 billion page views. UC Cricket, UC Browser’s in-app tool of cricket content aggregation, offers all-in-one live cricket content, including live scores, news, videos, photos, live commentaries and more.
This year, UC Browser aims to add a fun element to its cricket coverage. While users follow the updates of their favorite team and players on UC Browser, they can also pick cheerleaders to support their beloved teams. UC Browser has shortlisted 306 contestants from all the entries received. Users get a chance to vote for their top pick through their mobile app. UC Browser will reward the most-voted contestant with Rs 10 lakh cash prize as well as a chance to act in a UCWeb commercial. The first and second runner up will get Rs 5 lakh and Rs 2 lakh respectively. Well-known film and TV personalities Urvashi Rautela, Priyadarshini Chatterjee, and Shirin Sewani have also joined the contest.
Being called “the hottest Miss Cricket” by her fans, Urvashi Rautela said, “I am delighted to be a part of this campaign. While I am a big cricket fan, UC Browser has always stood for edgy and youth-centric content. Marrying the two this cricket season seems like the best idea. I would like add my support for Mumbai Indians which is my favorite team. I am really looking forward to win this contest and have lots of fun in the process.”
