"I find that enjoying a match with friends during a live screening offers a more dynamic and enjoyable experience. It allows for lively discussions, shared excitement, and the camaraderie that a stadium atmosphere can sometimes lack. Plus, it's an excellent way to create lasting memories together. We all ICBIANs had a blast," said jeweller Anand Kulthia (third from right).

#ORGANISER SPEAK:

Gaurav Karnani, director of The Grid, accompanied by his wife Ritika Karnani, said: “The India-Pakistan match is like a mini World Cup in itself. That’s why we prepared a specially curated menu and crafted unique cocktails exclusively for this exciting match.”

Cupcakes crafted with fragrant vanilla beans, rich Callebaut chocolate, succulent blueberries and wholesome oatmeal. These delectable treats were beautifully adorned with edible prints of Indian team players.

‘Come on... India’ is a harmonious gin cocktail, balancing litchi and elderflower with zesty lime and creamy pineapple. The flavour is a delightful fusion of sweet and citrus, with a hint of tropical creaminess, beautifully garnished with vibrant colours and fragrant zest.
