Expressing his views on Harsha’s partnership with Bowled.io, Rahul Singh, Cofounder, Bowled.io said, “Straight drive is the same, whether it is Meerut or Melbourne or Manchester. We started with a mission to bring together cricket lovers from all over the world through the power of sports, gaming and social engagement. Bowled.io is the go-to platform for cricket lovers providing an immersive and 360-degree experience for cricket fans to connect, compete, and share their passion for the sport.

Building further on the overwhelmingly positive response from the community, we are super excited to add Harsha as a brand ambassador and strategic investor. His expertise and adroit understanding of the sports ecosystem will help us grow Bowled.io and connect with sports fans globally.”

Bowled.io, which launched in March 2022, uses blockchain technology to allow for true ownership and interoperability of in-game assets, and has already built a large international community of cricket enthusiasts, with 70+ countries represented, 34 million hours of gameplay, and 60 million in-game assets in circulation.

Speaking on joining Bowled.io, Harsha Bhogle said, “Strategy-based games have always piqued my interest since they let people compete with one another and get more involved. I was drawn in by the prospect of working with a youthful, zealous team of cricket enthusiasts and their new take on cricket. I now expect a prolonged, exploratory journey with this fantastic young team.”

The platform, launched in March 2022, offers a variety of cricket-based games, in-game assets, tournaments, and social and economic benefits, all powered by blockchain technology, allowing true ownership and interoperability of assets. The Bowled.io marketplace already has a global community of cricket fans from over 70 countries with over 34 million hours of gameplay consumed and 60 million in-game assets in circulation.
