Reliance Jio has been one of the biggest forces in the Indian telecom markets. The company is not only promoting their telecom services, but also a number of apps of their own.

Today, the tickets for IPL 2017 home matches for the Mumbai Indians have gone live, and JioMoney users have the exclusive access to buying them for the first six days.
Cricket is commonly referred to as a ‘religion’ of sorts in India. The sport has a massive following and a billion eyes are on the TV when the games are on.
