The team has a great line-up of players, backed by experience and proven track records. As the tournament is being held in the UAE, it is even more special as the country is home to diasporas of some of the biggest cricket-loving nations such as India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri-Lanka, and UK, among others.
The Bengal Tigers team has a great fan following from varied diasporas which is very similar to the customer base that Xpress Money has. Two fantastic brands coming together will bring a lot of excitement to the tournament.”
