Guyanese and Jamaicans find formula for winning Digicel Cricket Blackberries – Digicel Cricket Release
The South African players have won all the Man-of-the-Match Blackberry Bolds during the Digicel One Day International Series, but five West Indians have taken home the leading mobile communications device as well.
The West Indians though, are not players, but fans.
Three Guyanese and two Jamaicans have won one Blackberry Bold 9700 each from the popular Digicel Cricket Facebook and Twitter Competition.
The competition was run simultaneously on the two social networking websites for each of the five Digicel ODIs and the Guyanese and the Jamaicans seem to have figured out the secrets to winning.
Guyanese John Duncan, Lenandlar Singh and Nakasi Fortune along with Jamaicans Marvin Smith and Monique Richards are the lucky winners.
Fans were asked to guess either the scores of particular batsmen or the overall score the West Indies will make for each match – with the person who got the identical score or came closest winning the ultra-sleek and highly desirable Blackberry Bold 9700.
The competition has been hugely popular thus far with thousands of responses on both Twitter and Facebook. Digicel Cricket also provides up-to-the-minute score updates and West Indian-flavoured commentary on both websites throughout the matches.
Digicel Cricket’s Twitter page (http://twitter.com/digicelcricket) is where fans and even journalists around the world have been going to get live updates from the toss as it is the first place where news on which players are playing and what team has won the toss is posted.
“I think the competition is awesome and a great way for Digicel to get in touch with more persons in the Caribbean and it proves that Digicel is the best mobile network in the Caribbean,” said University of Guyana student and winner John Duncan.
“I was extremely happy after hearing I had won and even more so after receiving the prize. The device proves very useful and I’m thoroughly enjoying it,” Duncan added.
“We’re delighted with the reception we have had on Facebook and Twitter and with the growing popularity of our Digicel Cricket site (www.digicelcricket.com). We are always looking for new ways to engage the fans and to thank our valued Digicel customers for their continued support – so we encourage everyone to keep entering the competitions to be in with a chance to win a fantastic Blackberry courtesy of Digicel,” comments Karl Donnelly, Head of Group Sponsorship for Digicel.
Three more Blackberry Bolds remain to be won for the Digicel Test matches starting with the First
Digicel Test on June 10th at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad.
Fans can participate in the competition by simply following Digicel Cricket (http://twitter.com/digicelcricket) on Twitter or become a fan of Digicel Cricket on Facebook. The question will be announced at the start of each match and fans will be informed of the deadline for their responses at the same time.
The competition is open to all users of Facebook and Twitter who are resident in countries where Digicel service is available.
