Getting the chance to meet a former Indian cricketer is a dream come true for most of us. What if I tell you that you get a chance to have a lunch with a World Cup winner? You would go crazy, wouldn’t you?
ProSports11, one of India’s fastest growing fantasy sports platform, pulled off the ‘dream-come-true’ moment for 8 hardcore sports lovers. Eight ProSports11 users won a fully expense paid trip to Dharamshala where they had lunch with former Indian cricketer and World Cup winner – RP Singh, had a one-on-one interactive session with him and went to watch a T20 match.
ProSports11 took care of all the expenses. We just wanted them to have a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ experience. Our most loyal users asked and we simply delivered.
Pralay Kumar, a Kolkata based ProSports11 user, was the luckiest of them all. Former South African players Graeme Smith and Shaun Pollock were in the same flight as Pralay. He clicked pictures of them and even got the chance to exchange a conversation. He said – ‘I went mad when I saw cricket legends like Smith and Pollock. They were my childhood heroes and it was unbelievable that I got the chance to get a picture clicked with them. Then I had lunch with RP Singh. I never thought something like this will ever happen. All thanks to ProSports11 for making all this happen.’
All the winners then had a lunch with RP Singh where they asked him about his playing days and how it felt like to lift the World Cup trophy in 2007.
Himanshu Pakhle, a Pune based ProSports11 user, was thrilled beyond levels just like everybody else. He thanked ProSports11 team for rewarding him with the Dharamshala trip.
Manish Daya came to Dharamshala all the way from Indore along with his brother Deepak Daya. Manish said – ‘All thanks to ProSports11 that we are here enjoying in Dharamshala. I love playing on the app and my experience is unbelievable. When we got to know that RP Singh is ProSports11 brand ambassador, we knew we could trust this app. The withdrawals are so fast and they keep on adding new features. I love their new feature – Bench 2.0. Now we don’t need to follow the toss especially in tournaments like Caribbean Premier League (CPL) which take place in the middle of the night. We can rank our substitutions and set a priority order.’ He was delighted that his playing XI is confirmed now and he does not need to worry about player injuries.
Post lunch and the interactive session, all the winners then went to Dharamshala cricket stadium to watch the T20 match. This was once in a lifetime experience for all the winners.
