Indian Cricketer Dinesh Karthik Excited About India’s First Sports NFT

The digital painting NFT, titled “Six For The Win,” is based on Dinesh Karthik’s thinking in 2018, when he hit a last-ball six to win India the Nidahas Trophy.


When Indian cricketer Dinesh Karthik scored a last-ball six in the 2018 India versus Bangladesh match to win India the Nidahas Trophy, he showed the world that his finishing skills are equally as good as his wicketkeeping.

One of the most iconic moments in modern Indian cricket history was the hit. Now, the event is being tied with India’s first-ever sports NFT, cementing its place in cricket history (Non-Fungible Token).

The cricketer posted a tweet regarding his excitement about the new NFT.

The digital art NFT, dubbed “Six For The Win,” will be up for public sale in October. Karthik’s inner thoughts are depicted in an animated animation as he faces the Bangladeshi bowler moments before smashing the ball for a match-winning knock.

Dinesh Karthik has recently declared that he is ecstatic to be a part of India’s first-ever sports National Football Team.

Karthik expressed his excitement for the art auction. The wicketkeeper-batsman also disclosed that the top bidder will receive an autographed game jersey.

Karthik uploaded a photo of the artwork on his official Twitter account.

The NFT will be auctioned off on rarible.com, a website that sells art online.

To create the digital art, Karthik collaborated with squash player Saurav Ghosal and worked with New York-based tech partners.

Karthik’s voiceover is also used in the artwork. Between October 12 and 22, the auction will be open to the public.
