However, there is one more finisher from the city: Dinesh Karthik. He presently plays in the Indian Premier League for Kolkata Knight Riders, but his dramatic last-ball six for India against Bangladesh in the Nidahas Trophy in 2018 remains a memorable memory in Indian cricket and for fans.
In the form of India’s first sports NFT, the Chennai-based cricketer has caught that occasion (non-fungible token). The digital art NFT, titled Six for the Win, includes an animated clip with Dinesh’s voice-over and is up for public bidding.
“Cricket can be a religion in India and there are numerous important cricket minutes like the 1983 World Cup win, the 2011 World Cup win, Sachin Tendulkar’s 100th century and the most important IPL coordinate.” In a virtual discussion from the United Arab Emirates, Dinesh added:
“The world of cricket should play in the NFT space which may evolve in the future.”
I wanted fans to experience, Karthik initially learned about NFTs earlier this year after reading about. Elon Musk’s colleague (Grimes) making a lot of money selling digital artwork. “The more I read up on it, the more convinced I became that it was a unique and out-of-the-box idea,” he adds.
Dinesh – or DK as he is known – is currently a vital player for the. Kolkata club in the IPL, but he was in England just a few months ago in a new role. As a commentator. His cricket knowledge, paired with his wit and style (Karthik was dubbed the
“Giorgio Armani of broadcasting”), made him a popular figure in the UK cricket community.
So, how’s it doing after only a few weeks of talking about the game? “It’s fairly common to see a player on the field one day and in the studio the next in basketball or football.”
We’re only used to seeing retired cricket stars talk about it in cricket. “I took up commentary to overcome this stigma,” Dinesh says, adding that he had a great time in. England while watching cricket.
