UC Browser’s Miss Cricket Campaign makes debut on billboard at New York Times Square

After almost 2 months of fierce competition, UC Miss Cricket Contest, an exciting campaign from UC Browser, has come to an end, with the winner Nishi Singh featuring on a billboard at New York Times Square. The 21-year old new rising star has also received cash prize of Rs 10 lakh, while the first runner-up Pari Sharma and second runner-up Aishwarya Singh have won Rs 5 lakh and Rs 2 lakh respectively. The 3 winners have also made an appearance on the Indian edition of Vogue magazine.

UC Miss Cricket is India’s first online beauty contest driven only by users vote, without intervention from judges. Winner Nishi Singh, TV beauty from Mumbai, got the maximum “likes” on UC Browser for her warm and friendly personality.



On winning the UC Miss Cricket contest, Nishi Singh said: “Not just winning the competition, it has been a great journey altogether during the entire campaign of UC Miss Cricket 2018. I would like to thank UC Browser from the bottom of my heart for giving me this platform and helping me reach so many people. I have been able to connect with all my new-found fans over multiple social media platforms and I would also like to thank them for their votes and support. Winning the First Prize has been a dream come true, and getting my face on NY Times Square has been an icing on the cake.”
