THE CRICKET PLAYBOOK FOR GROWTH MARKETERS
Foreword
A Moment to Connect Beyond Boundaries
Celebrated by Indians and renowned worldwide, cricket has captivated Indian sport
lovers for decades. In India, the cricket season is a national phenomenon — like the
Super Bowl is the US — connecting Indians with each other and their favorite teams.
Millions throng at stadiums or virtually on the internet and television screens to watch
the matches with friends and family. This makes it an advertiser’s dream season to
connect with their existing audience and potential customers.
The Catch: Rising Media Costs
The competition is fierce on the field, and we are not talking about cricket. Millions of
advertising players vying for consumers’ attention during the cricket season means
heightened media costs. The challenge is that not all brands can afford to sponsor
games or run ads during matches on air. Furthermore, brands need to be able to
measure success with ease. To make their presence memorable, marketers require
an innovative and cost-effective approach.
The Largest Field of Opportunity: Mobile
When the 2023 edition of India’s biggest cricket tournament became free to view
on OTT and millions tuned in, the digital space – particularly mobile – became
even more lucrative for advertisers.
Even if people watch the match on larger screens, the mobile, being an always-on
device, is the second screen. People constantly turn to it for match updates,
running errands, browsing merchandise, ordering food, or calling friends and
family to share match moments.
And now, with the emergence of smart surfaces, people are beginning to access
instant updates with a single tap on their smartphones. This provides plenty of
avenues for brands to make a mark.
32 million people watched the IPL on the official OTT platform
in 2023, beating the previous record of 25.3 million in 2019*

The Winner's Strategy for Growth Marketers: Giving Emerging Channels a
Shot to Engage and Acquire Users
Marketers must remember the fundamentals and embrace the future to maximize ROI
during the cricket season. Here is what this looks like:
Leverage the power of AI to drive efficiencies: AI and machine
learning can help generate personalized content at scale, tailor experiences
based on consumer context, and consistently offer more relevant experiences
that lead to better app downloads.
Explore emerging channels to drive seamless app download journeys:
Advertisers must be present on platforms such as smart surfaces, where
millions consume content with a single tap, to allow app downloads without
visiting the Play Store.
Measure the success of your app campaign: Leverage preload attribution to
effectively measure outcomes from installs to conversions and get crucial
insights into the number of users opening your app, the comparative performance
of your pre-install campaigns, and campaigns that drove high-value users.
Decode the incremental impact of your campaigns: Leverage incrementality to
understand the incremental impact of your campaigns and creatives.
In the report, we explore how advertisers can deliver experiences that delight consumers
around the cricket season on emerging channels.

How Mobile Changed the Game
TV is not out, but it has given way to everybody’s beloved on-the-go channel, mobile.
Fans now watch cricket tournaments digitally, with mobile playing two key roles:
1. Being the preferred medium where viewers stream the match.
2. Being the second screen that viewers turn to even when the match is on TV.
Thus, even when people are tuning into the matches on television, they pick their
phones up to read analyses, engage with updates, or call friends and family to share
match moments with them.
The New Virtual Stadium for Fans:
The Smart Lock Screen
The lock screen was once a dull space where people
could only check the time and notifications. Since 2019,
Glance has turned this passive lock screen into a smart
lock screen – a smart surface that gives people the latest
updates in the language and interest of their choice, as
soon as they pick up their phones, with a single tap. This
has changed the game for Indian sports enthusiasts,
becoming the destination for instant match updates.

Younger audiences mean tech-savvy audiences! Brands across verticals
have the chance to drive app downloads with a single tap by offering
immersive digital experiences on the first mobile touchpoint.
Interestingly, we also find several viewers on devices in the lower and
mid price range, indicating that the mobile is India’s easiest gateway
to the internet.

A Close Look at Cricket Lovers
in the Virtual Stadium
Cricket enthusiasts from every corner of the country visit the smart lock screen for

on the go with a single tap on their smartphones. During the 2023 cricket season, they
stayed updated with snackable stories or cards that showed up on their smart lock
screen. This behavior is in line with today’s demand for instant and easy experiences.

Rising Retention
• Retention rates rose from the yearly average of 20%, up to 20.5% during the IPL.

retention, but news, food delivery, and games saw increased retention. This highlights
the role of the mobile as a second screen in the lives of cricket fans.

Perfecting the
Delivery
Now that you are equipped with insights into how Indian cricket enthusiasts consume
content and interact with their mobile phones, let us see how you can effectively
connect with them.
There are two elements that go into this:
#1 - Context: Consumers look for different things before, during, and after matches.
They are also in different states of mind at these different times. Therefore, it is
important to consider this when you are reaching them.
#2 - Content: The way you present your brand to cricket fans will determine whether
you will catch their eye. Creatives and communication must be compelling and yet
seamlessly integrate into their cricket season experience.
Now, we dive deeper into these two elements.

  • 3. 1 THE CRICKET PLAYBOOK FOR GROWTH MARKETERS Foreword A Moment to Connect Beyond Boundaries Celebrated by Indians and renowned worldwide, cricket has captivated Indian sport lovers for decades. In India, the cricket season is a national phenomenon — like the Super Bowl is the US — connecting Indians with each other and their favorite teams. Millions throng at stadiums or virtually on the internet and television screens to watch the matches with friends and family. This makes it an advertiser’s dream season to connect with their existing audience and potential customers. The Catch: Rising Media Costs The competition is fierce on the field, and we are not talking about cricket. Millions of advertising players vying for consumers’ attention during the cricket season means heightened media costs. The challenge is that not all brands can afford to sponsor games or run ads during matches on air. Furthermore, brands need to be able to measure success with ease. To make their presence memorable, marketers require an innovative and cost-effective approach. The Largest Field of Opportunity: Mobile When the 2023 edition of India’s biggest cricket tournament became free to view on OTT and millions tuned in, the digital space – particularly mobile – became even more lucrative for advertisers. Even if people watch the match on larger screens, the mobile, being an always-on device, is the second screen. People constantly turn to it for match updates, running errands, browsing merchandise, ordering food, or calling friends and family to share match moments. And now, with the emergence of smart surfaces, people are beginning to access instant updates with a single tap on their smartphones. This provides plenty of avenues for brands to make a mark. 32 million people watched the IPL on the official OTT platform in 2023, beating the previous record of 25.3 million in 2019* ! *Source: SportsPro Media, 2023
  • 4. The Winner's Strategy for Growth Marketers: Giving Emerging Channels a Shot to Engage and Acquire Users Marketers must remember the fundamentals and embrace the future to maximize ROI during the cricket season. Here is what this looks like: Leverage the power of AI to drive efficiencies: AI and machine learning can help generate personalized content at scale, tailor experiences based on consumer context, and consistently offer more relevant experiences that lead to better app downloads. Explore emerging channels to drive seamless app download journeys: Advertisers must be present on platforms such as smart surfaces, where millions consume content with a single tap, to allow app downloads without visiting the Play Store. Measure the success of your app campaign: Leverage preload attribution to effectively measure outcomes from installs to conversions and get crucial insights into the number of users opening your app, the comparative performance of your pre-install campaigns, and campaigns that drove high-value users. Decode the incremental impact of your campaigns: Leverage incrementality to understand the incremental impact of your campaigns and creatives. In the report, we explore how advertisers can deliver experiences that delight consumers around the cricket season on emerging channels. 2 THE CRICKET PLAYBOOK FOR GROWTH MARKETERS
  • 5. THE CRICKET PLAYBOOK FOR GROWTH MARKETERS Inside the Minds of Cricket Fans
  • 6. CHAPTER 1 4 73% of IPL viewers tune into the tournament digitally 52% of them watch the matches on both TV and mobile 30% prefer watching the IPL solely on mobile, and only 18% prefer TV 21%1 of the content consumed on the Glance smart lock screen is around sports Source: 1 Glance Platform Data, 2023 2 The Times of India THE CRICKET PLAYBOOK FOR GROWTH MARKETERS How Mobile Changed the Game TV is not out, but it has given way to everybody’s beloved on-the-go channel, mobile. Fans now watch cricket tournaments digitally, with mobile playing two key roles: 1. Being the preferred medium where viewers stream the match. 2. Being the second screen that viewers turn to even when the match is on TV. Thus, even when people are tuning into the matches on television, they pick their phones up to read analyses, engage with updates, or call friends and family to share match moments with them. The New Virtual Stadium for Fans: The Smart Lock Screen The lock screen was once a dull space where people could only check the time and notifications. Since 2019, Glance has turned this passive lock screen into a smart lock screen – a smart surface that gives people the latest updates in the language and interest of their choice, as soon as they pick up their phones, with a single tap. This has changed the game for Indian sports enthusiasts, becoming the destination for instant match updates. INSIDE THE MINDS OF CRICKET FANS ! 75 million1 people checked the score per day on average during the 2023 cricket season on the smart lock screen ! 568x more score viewers per day on the smart lock screen than the number of people that fit into India’s largest cricket stadium2 !

  • 7. Younger audiences mean tech-savvy audiences! Brands across verticals have the chance to drive app downloads with a single tap by offering immersive digital experiences on the first mobile touchpoint. Interestingly, we also find several viewers on devices in the lower and mid price range, indicating that the mobile is India’s easiest gateway to the internet. How marketers can win this game: A Close Look at Cricket Lovers in the Virtual Stadium Cricket enthusiasts from every corner of the country visit the smart lock screen for instant and seamless cricket updates. They consume this content in various languages on the go with a single tap on their smartphones. During the 2023 cricket season, they stayed updated with snackable stories or cards that showed up on their smart lock screen. This behavior is in line with today’s demand for instant and easy experiences. The Spectators on the Smart Lock Screen Comprising cricket lovers across ages, genders, and geographies, the smart lock screen is a truly diverse space.
