This World Cup, more than any so far, promises to have a strong following online, given not just the increase in internet audiences but also that the timings are not exactly conducive to television viewing in India. The Insight’s center on ESPNcricinfo is expected to be the go-to place for all cricket buffs keen to get all the information and stats around the World Cup. At Epson we felt that our presence on Cricinfo during this World Cup made imminent sense and would drive visibility for key products, especially our fantastic InkTank Printers and Home Theatre projectors.”
