The game streaming and e-sports platform Rooter is all set to host the largest Cricket eWorld Cup in India from October 16 to November 13. The tournament clashes with the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.
The Cricket eWorld Cup will consist of eight teams named after top cricketing nations. They will be battling for a phenomenal prize pool of Rs. 10 lakh. The tournament will be sponsored by 1XBet and the aim of the company behind organizing this competition is to connect with the 800 million die-hard cricket lovers across the country.
Meanwhile, this will be the second major tournament organized by the company after they had earlier hosted the Asia Cup. The continental tournament was hosted by the Rooter Independence Cricket League.

Our latest eWorld Cup tournament is an amplified version of our previous event, so you can expect larger teams, a bigger prize pool and double the excitement,” said Dipesh Agarwal, co-founder and COO, Rooter.
