At iB Cricket, a common thread binds us all – we’re as passionate about technology as we’re for cricket. Being among those billion hearts that beat for cricket, we wanted to deliver memorable experience to fans — to play the game as large as their favorite stars do.
So, we deep-dived into uncharted waters of virtual reality and developed iB Cricket. With our founders infusing growth mindset and innovation into our company’s core culture, we pushed the limits of VR. And the outcome — the world's most immersive VR cricket, the closest a VR game can get to reality.
Everyone who played iB Cricket, right from fans to cricketing legends like Sunil Gavaskar to the leaders in VR had only one word to say — ‘Extraordinary and Highly Immersive’. This gave us a special place in the global VR landscape.
Just in a span of 2 years, we’ve come a long way marking many milestones — all the way from a young team with dreams, positive and high, to racing ahead in the VR industry. Now, we’re running our operations across 7 countries. More than 150 world-class cricketers have been involved through various partnerships & events. And till date, people from over 35 countries played 1+ million balls in iB Cricket.
Celebrating the achievement of the prestigious award, Trivikrama shared his happiness saying
“Kudos to all my team for breaking all the challenges and bringing out a world-class product from India. This recognition, at such an early stage, is a great boost for a young startup like us. We look forward to bringing many more transformative products in XR technologies with a global impact.”
Thanks to iB Cricket community for all your love and support!
To the much more exciting future...
