Apple CEO Tim Cook went to see his first ever cricket match between Gujarat Lions against Kolkata Knight Riders in Kanpur, India.
I love it!
This is incredibly exciting. It’s my first cricket game. I’m hooked, I’m totally hooked…. It’s so exciting here. I’ve never felt anything like this; it’s incredible.
[India] is hugely important [to Apple]. It’s a gret marketplace, but, the talent is so huge here, we want to really tap into the iOS ecosystem.
I think India has an incredible future. I’m really optimistic. — Apple CEO Tim Cook
