This is the second edition of the CricHeroes Awards which was started for the purpose of aligning the aim of CricHeroes, to develop, support and provide a platform for grassroots cricketers to improve their games through analytics and other features that are provided on the platform.
“We have always been proud in providing recognition for the players through our platform and CricHeroes Awards is our way of recognising the entire grassroots cricket community at a bigger stage. It is a wonderful achievement for these players to be getting these awards from the thousands of matches that are scored on the platform. Women cricketers are given the deserved focus at this year’s awards and we believe that this recognition will motivate them and others too.” said Abhishek Desai, Founder, CricHeroes.

The whole cricketing community who are part of CricHeroes and take it up as a career or just for the passion of the game are recognised by CricHeroes for every little achievement which is worth recognizing. This gives them a solid reason to continue playing and keep improving their game by collecting the data in an organized manner and recognizing their effort on the ground.
This has made a huge difference to the grassroots cricket players as they become more aware about their stats and understanding what they will have to do going forward in order to improve. The leaderboards feature in the platform has made the players more competitive which recognises people in their city, state, tournaments and teams. Such features along with CricHeroes continuously motivate players to perform better which has made a difference in the overall quality of the game.
