In collaboration with RevSports and Fanatic Sports, Jhulan Goswami is prepared to storm the exciting new world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), with Dubai-based Cricflix launching its inaugural Cricket Fungible Token (NFT) auction in Dubai. Even before the auction begins, Goswami’s 2017 World Cup shirt has been pre-bid, making it the first jersey in the NFT cricket world to be matched.

“I am overjoyed. Perhaps this will be the beginning for many of my other colleagues to unlock the NFT value and reach out to the fans,” Goswami, the leading wicket-taker in women’s ODIs, said. Pre-bids for USD 200,000 have already been placed, indicating that cricket fans all across the world are enthusiastic about Cricflix.

“By introducing world-class cricket artifacts with a storied history to the metaverse, we, at Cricflix, are providing significant transformation.” Cricflix co-founder Anwar Hussain described it as “an investment component of a rare asset class for future generations where the metaverse and the physical world come together and prosper.”

The program intends to empower cricket lovers by providing them with access to valuable investment opportunities as well as rare and historically significant items. In recent years, sports NFTs have proven to be a game-changing digital asset, and Cricflix’s launch of the rare NFTs will provide fans with unique ownership rights as well as earning prospects by accumulating beloved moments from their digital athletic collections.

In addition to Goswami’s jersey, cricket fans all over the world will have access to exclusive collections of rare and authentic cricket memorabilia from the playing days of great cricketers such as CK Nayudu, including rare artifacts such as match tickets from India’s most famous years, 1932 and 1936. A trip to England, a signed stamp from the legendary Donald Bradman, signed souvenirs from the 1983 squad, and Lata Mangeshkar’s concert CD for the 1983 World Cup-winning cricketers are among the items up for auction at the upcoming NFT auction.
