Since its release over three years back, PUBG Mobile's popularity has surpassed the casual and competitive gaming boundaries to become a household name. The game has legendary status in India. Unfortunately, it was among the list of applications that were suspended by the Government of India in early September last year.
The game is enjoyed by millions of users of all ages and professions worldwide, and some athletes even regard a good stress buster. The affinity of Indian cricketers towards PUBG Mobile is something that is not hidden.
Some of them also participated in the inaugural OnePlus Domin8 event last year that Team Smriti won. The event featured prominent cricketers KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Smriti Madhana alongside professional PUBG Mobile players like Scout, Jonathan, and Ghatak.
