Viber has recently launched a chatbot styled as ‘Battle of Cricket’ for cricket-loving users to let them be a part of an interactive, insightful conversation related to cricket matches and win exhilarating rewards.

 Cancellation of some cricket tournaments in this season of cricket has come as a big letdown to the cricket fans, said a press release.

But, Viber realizes the pulse of the users and understands how much cricket means to them. Keeping that in mind, Viber has introduced this cricket chatbot so that the cricket fans can still feel the vibe and enjoy nail-biting moments, said a press release. 

The users can not only predict but also win rewards. To add cherry on the top, Viber has roped in ex-cricketers Habibul Bashar Sumon and Shahriar Nafees, both renowned for their outstanding career and cricket acumen, to offer insightful predictions before any match.

The users of the chatbot will have the chance to receive predictions from Habibul Bashar Sumon and Shahriar Nafees, who will be using their expertise and experience to predict and comment on the upcoming matches and come up with exclusive contents. Their statements will be posted on the chatbot for all matches.  

Viber users will have the opportunity to be rewarded as well for their correct predictions. Anyone predicting the correct answer will receive rewards and get points on a daily basis.

Viber will create a leaderboard. Every Sunday, the top 3 users on the leaderboard will receive weekly rewards. Interested users can avail of this through a Viber-owned paid sticker pack and V/O credits which they can redeem using codes.
