WhatsApp has announced Cricket Stickers to celebrate the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 tournament. Initially, WhatsApp is rolling out the official Cricket Stickers pack for Android users, though iPhone users would also soon get the new offering. The new Cricket Stickers pack once rolled out will be available for download to let users share their cricket fever with loved ones. Stickers on WhatsApp are aimed to help users find new ways to express their moods, reactions, and experiences with contacts. Notably, WhatsApp brought stickers to its platform back in October last year.
To begin with the new development, users on WhatsApp for Android will have to download the official Cricket Stickers pack by going to the stickers category tab from the emoji section. The new pack, once downloaded, will be available for sharing with WhatsApp contacts -- just as other stickers and emoji characters.
WhatsApp is initially rolling out the Cricket Stickers pack for Android users, and it can be downloaded from the Sticker Store. The pack includes various stickers to include all your emotions and reactions related to cricket. Moreover, you can use the Cricket Stickers pack to celebrate your favourite player hitting a six or getting a century or while waiting for your favourite team to reach the ground during this IPL season.
It is worth mentioning here that the Cricket Stickers pack is rolling out from the server side, and you need to download the latest WhatsApp for Android (version 2.19.115) to experience the new addition. WhatsApp is also in plans to bring Cricket Stickers for iPhone users in the coming future. The company adds the Cricket Stickers pack will become available to download on Android in the coming hours.
