Let's be honest. The ICC World Twenty20 hasn't gotten off to the best of starts. Ticketing issues, Pakistan not willing to play, no opening ceremony, a crazy qualification stage for those that have already qualified and poor TV coverage.

Follow @aneeshmadani He runs us through all of the cool activations that the platform has running for the cricket tournament. Some you may know about. Many you will not. Irrespective, they will definitely raise your experience up a level or two!
