Q. What exactly is a Mango Moment?
MR: “Examples of Mango Moments for flamboyant styles of play are when Chris Gayle hit Brett Lee out of the Oval Arena or when we see the Dilshan scoop over the wicketkeepers head – really daring! Or a great catch on a boundary diving full length or perhaps a direct hit in a run out.
“These types of things, the Kevin Pietersen switch hit, are what the crowd want to come and see and what we will be celebrating through Mango Moments.”
