Bharat Army is the Indian cricket team’s official supporters’ group that travels across the globe to back their heroes from the stands.

Be it a bilateral series, Asia Cup or an ICC event, you’ll always find an enthusiastic group of Indian supporters cheering for Virat Kohli and Co in full swing. The Cricket World Cup, which took place in the UK in 2019, was a special moment for Bharat Army as the year had marked its 20th year since coming into force in 1999.

There was nothing better than touring for a World Cup to commemorate the milestone.  As a result of their efforts for making the tournament special for Team India and its supporters, close to 11,000 fans joined the Bharat Army for the World Cup. While there were fans who stayed till India’s final match, others showed for a few specific games.


For people who were going to watch a World Cup match live from the stadium, especially when the tournament was being held overseas, it was a fantastic experience. One of them was an Indian fan, Muthukumar, who resides in Singapore.

“The experience overall was great with the Bharat Army. All the arrangements including hotel and transport made by them were hassle-free. Moreover, it was a great experience watching the World Cup matches with like-minded people so overall, it was a memorable trip,” said Muthukumar.

Muthukumar, who watched India’s group matches against New Zealand, Pakistan and Australia followed with India’s heartbreaking semi-final loss to the BlackCaps further added that Bharat Army had reserved their seats at vantage points.

When asked if he would be going for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup, which will be played later this year in Australia, the Indian fan said yes. He also mentioned that if his plans work out for the T20 World Cup, he would surely contact Bharat Army once again for the tour.

“When we compared hotel room prices that were offered by the Bharat Army for double occupancy with direct rates available on various websites, those rates were the same as the websites offered for single occupancy! So, yes, Bharat Army is for us,” Muthukumar explained how good and reasonable the packages are that are offered by the Bharat Army.

The Women’s T20 World Cup is underway in Australia. The Indian Eves have won their first two games in the T20 World Cup, having defeated hosts Australia and Bangladesh. Their matches are being played in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, and Canberra with the final scheduled to be played on March 3 at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

Meanwhile, the Men’s T20 World Cup will commence from October 18 and the final will be played on November 14 at the same ground, MCG. The hosts assigned to the men’s event are Adelaide, Hobart, Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Geelong.

The previous edition of the men’s T20 World Cup took place in 2016 where West Indies defeated England in the final at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens. On the other hand, the ICC had held a standalone edition of the T20 World Cup for women in 2018, which saw the Australian women clinch their fourth title.
