NFTs are digital collectibles like video clips, sketches, autographed posters, the ownership of which can be transferrable and secure on the blockchain network.

This NFT series will be launched on Christmas, December 25 in partnership with NFT marketplace Colexion.

This is not the first time however, that an Indian cricketer has come up with an NFT collection. In October, cricketing legend Sunil Gavaskar had released a collection of NFTs, that included a captured moment of him becoming the first player to score 10,000 runs among other memorable achievements.

Between July and September this year, NFT sales volume surged to $10.7 billion (roughly Rs. 79,820 crore), up by over eight-fold from the previous quarter, according to data from market tracker DappRadar.

Along with international celebrities, several Indian artists have also entered into the NFT space.

In recent months, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, fashion designer Manish Malhotra, and actor Salman Khan among others also treated their fans with NFT collections.
