Commenting on the launch of the beta version, Rajat Kulshrestha, CEO, PlayUp India said, “Launching PlayUp WEB beta on the occasion of the legendary cricket series between India and Australia is a huge step for us. We all know how this series swings the cricketing fortunes of both the cricket playing countries and this time we wish to expand the experience of being a part of the game to our subscribers as well. Through PlayUp, cricket aficionados can be a part of the game, share experiences and put in their comments on play sequences which gives them an opportunity to live the game. Knowing how passionate people are of both the countries about the series, we intend to give them a 360° experience of the game.”

Steve Waugh, the brand ambassador of PlayUp says, “The unique feature of PlayUp is that it enables sports fans to take part in the atmosphere of the game even when they can’t be at the ground. The great thing about sport is everyone has an opinion –you want your mates to think your opinion is the right one and vice-versa. What I love about PlayUp is that it allows you to easily talk about a situation or phase of the game – and you can voice this opinion easily through the iPhone app or website as you are watching the game.”
