Fan following


The Indian cricket team has the benefit of having a fan-base that crosses the billion-mark in the home country. This leads to the fact that no stadium in the nation has a vacant seat left when the Indian team is playing. The passion for the game among Indians is huge and can be compared to the passion among Europeans for football. The crowd support always benefits the home side and this is one team that has crowd support almost anywhere in the world.


West Indies v India - One Day International Series


They have more than half of the crowd cheering for them in any country they visit. Let alone the cricket-playing nations like the SENA countries (South Africa, England, New Zealand and Australia) but also in the United States where they played a couple of T20I series against the West Indies.


The BCCI has close to 10 million followers on Twitter, over 10.5 million followers on Instagram and 3 million followers on Facebook. The Indian cricketers have a huge impact on the fan base on social media.
