IG is delighted to be partnering with CricViz as part of its Find the Insight Edge campaign. The partnership will see CricViz’s unique combination of data science, analysis and cricket expertise used to highlight the strategies and plans that are so important in achieving success at the highest level of the game.
IG’s Find the Insight Edge campaign will see the UK’s No.1 online trading provider* and Official England Cricket Partner, shine a light on the various insights that make a difference in creating winning strategies.
The partnership with CricViz will provide IG with exclusive statistics from the England’s men’s and women’s international fixtures, and will offer fans unique insights across social media.
IG will further enhance the fan experience by supporting the relaunch of the CricViz cricket podcast and app, providing integrated, multi-platform analysis for a cricket audience that is now looking for a fresh approach to the coverage of English cricket.
