MUMBAI - Introducing a new way to play cricket, Reliance Communications has launched ‘Cwicket’ - a multilingual and fully featured voice-based mobile cricket game.
Cwicket is the first major voice-based service to play cricket on mobile with the language of one’s choice,” said Anil Pande, head of value-added services, Reliance Communications, a part of the Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group.
“Cricket games have been available on internet and mobile through WAP. India being a multilingual country, we have partnered with DialFy Technologies, a voice-based services company, to launch Cwicket, Pande added.
To play the game, Reliance users will have to call and subscribe at 505101065.
Once the user’s mobile number has been registered, they can choose one from 10 different teams - Kolkata Kite Flyers, Bangalore Techies and Chennai Super Annas, to name a few.
A user is allowed to choose to play the game in either English or Hindi. For every game played, 1,000 points are awarded, 400 extra for a win and 100 each for every six or wicket.
The points can be redeemed to enter virtual tournaments, power plays, real prizes and custom bats and balls.
