Apple CEO Tim Cook attends Indian Premier League cricket match
Apple CEO Tim Cook is continuing his working tour of India by attending today’s Indian Premier League cricket match following the grand opening of Apple Saket — the iPhone maker’s second store in India on Thursday.
Cook was seen with Indian actor Sonam K Ahuja and others for the match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Punjab Kings, marking Cook’s second visit to the Indian Premier League since 2016, which was the CEO’s first visit to a live cricket game.
Earlier this week, Cook met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss Apple’s growth and future investments in the country.
Thank you so much for an unforgettable evening! ???????????? https://t.co/JNGdbt6QnJ

The past week has seen Apple open two new Apple Store locations in India.
Apple stepped up its retail efforts in India in 2020, expanding the official online Apple Store to bring its full range of products and support directly to customers across the country for the first time, cutting the reliance on the company’s network of third-party sellers to handle sales and support in the country.
