As for the question of why the Harrier was present at the ground, Tata Motors is the official partner for Vivo Indian Premier League 2019 and has been using the cricket festival as a platform to showcase its Harrier SUV. Also, there is a special competition announced by Tata through which the winner can get a Harrier SUV as the reward. Known as the Harrier Fan Catch, through this competition, fans are rewarded Rs. 1 lakh for taking a clean single-handed catch of a six. The fan who wins the most popular Harrier Fan Catch of the season also wins the luxury SUV. The final result will be done via an online voting procedure where the most popular one hand fan catch of the season will be decided.
