JioCinema has added a new feature to their streaming platform – Hero Cam.
The Indian cricket team’s official digital streaming partner JioCinema grabbed the attention of the cricket fans first Test match between India and England in Hyderabad.
BCCI’s official broadcaster JioCinema has added a new feature to their streaming platform – Hero Cam. With this feature on the mobile application and on the website, the fans can keep track of the star players during the match.
JioCinema introduced the special feature earlier this year during the T20I series against Afghanistan. The feature picks the star players of the team and shuffles them as the match progresses as fans can specifically follow what their star players are doing on the field.
The special feature also impressed Team India captain Rohit Sharma’s wife Ritika Sajdeh who shared a story on his Instagram story. Ritika posted a photo of Rohit and wrote, “Am I the only one just discovering hero cam.”
Meanwhile, on Thursday,
Opener Yashasvi Jaiswal led India’s charging reply to England’s 246, which had been driven by captain Ben Stokes’ half-century on an all-attacking opening day of the first Test.
The hosts were 119-1 at stumps in Hyderabad and trailing England by 127 runs, with skipper Rohit Sharma (24) the sole wicket.
Jaiswal, on 76 off 70 balls, and Shubman Gill, on 14, were batting at close of play.
Left-hander Jaiswal reached his fifty in 47 balls with a boundary off debutant Tom Hartley, whose bruising introduction to Test cricket saw him leak 63 runs from nine overs.
Rohit walked back dejected after mistiming a shot off left-arm spinner Jack Leach, Stokes completing the catch in the deep.
But Jaiswal stood firm with Gill for company to keep India odds-on for a first-innings lead.
Stokes top-scored with 70 after the visitors opted to bat first, sticking to their ultra-attacking “Bazball” strategy to counter India’s renowned home-turf spin prowess.
India spinner Axar Patel said his side were happy to hold the tourists to their total, adding that the pitch had yet to turn in favour of bowlers.
“It’s a bit challenging for the batsman, but if you play well, you can score runs,” he said.
“For bowlers it’s a challenge,” he added. “If you miss your line and length then runs will come easy.”
