The craze for the ongoing IPL 2018 has been taking the entire country by storm and Jio is looking to cash in on the same to take the excitement to a whole new level. We often spend most of our time outside our homes with no access to TV. Personally speaking, I have missed watching my favourite Mumbai Indians play against Delhi Daredevils and Sunrisers Hyderabad last week, simply because I was not around a TV.

In such a case, all I can do is live stream matches online on a smartphone. Simple, right? Not necessarily. Because at times, I also have to make sure that my cellular data speed and data balance support me equally in the moment of crisis. With that in mind, Jio announced their Cricket Gold Pass that provides certain benefits to Cricket fans. Here is how you can subscribe to a special Jio Cricket pack:

What is Jio Cricket Gold Pass?

Jio Cricket Gold pass is a Rs 251 pack that offers benefits like 102GB 4G data with a validity of 51 days. Yes, that also happens to be the duration of IPL 2018 tournament. You can only use up to 2GB data per day at high-speed. Once you exceed this limit, your speed will come down to 64kbps. Keep in mind, this is one of its kind data-only pack. So it will not provide any other benefits like unlimited calling and daily 100 SMS like all other plans.

However, if you have already subscribed for some other Jio plan, the 2GB daily data from the Gold Pass will be added to whatever your current daily data limit is. Let’s say you have opted for a 1.5GB daily data plan and you opt for the Jio Cricket Gold Pass add-on, you will get a total of 3.5GB data per day for the duration of the plan.
