NEW YORK, Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Azur Global, a major Chicago-based information technology company, has signed on as the official IT partner of "Cricket All-Stars" through the company's Azur Foundation. Headlined by living legends Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne, the "Cricket All-Stars" is a three-game series in NYC, Houston and Los Angeles featuring a lineup of superstar cricketers from around the world.
"This partnership is a natural fit, given our emphasis on innovation, excellence, raising the bar, and above all, a spirit of playing to win," said Azur's founder and CEO, Ranghan Venkatraman. "From early on, Azur Global has distinguished itself by disrupting the status quo in our business resulting in impactful, measurable results. It's the perfect partnership of excellence."
Ranghan believes that at the heart of any enduring organization is a purpose – or higher cause – and for Azur Global, the cause is to create an autism-free world through the Azur Foundation. The Foundation has launched AutismZero, the result of a deeply personal journey for Ranghan and his wife Ranjani. They believe the goal of eradicating autism worldwide, and in the process creating a better life for those with autism, as well as their families and caregivers, can be achieved through the foundation's four-pronged LIFE program: Learning, Inclusion, Financial Help and Emotional Support.
"We want people to know that an autism-free world is possible," added Ranghan. "We want to 'ignite' and 'light up' the minds of those affected with autism, and give them the wings to soar and set themselves free. Supporting the Cricket All-Stars with Sachin Tendulkar will help us get this message across to millions of passionate cricket fans worldwide. When these great cricketers come together in baseball stadiums across America and light up the pitch, we'll be right there alongside them, lighting up lives."
Azur recognizes that there are things that are much more important than sports, and is proud to partner through the Azur Foundation with the Cricket All-Stars, to combat autism around the world.
As a "Cricket All-Stars" partner, Azur Global will have a strong presence at the three matches as well as informative PSA spots to promote AutismZero.
The "Cricket All-Stars" kicks off on November 7 at Citi Field in New York City. The second match will be on November 11 at Minute Maid Park in Houston. The final match in the series will be on November 14 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The format will be T20, a much shorter and boisterous form of cricket with the games taking around three hours.
