Playerzpot connected me with that and I was very excited to see how they had created such a great platform to engage with fans and sports in I am very excited to be a part of this journey as it will be another opportunity for me to engage with the fans, players, and sports enthusiasts. People these days are keeping up to date with a lot of knowledge, may it be team points, player stats, etc and in turn winning a lot of prizes while being involved with Playerzpot. So I am hoping a lot of fans get involved with regard to this gaming platform”.

“I am expecting to see a lot more fans to come out and show their knowledge and skills and put it to the test against the best. Plus, I hope my presence would increase the widespread popularity of fantasy gaming amongst the females as well,” the southpaw added
Co-Founder at Playerzpot Mr Mitesh Ganga said, “We believe that fantasy gaming is skill based. And what’s better than having two highly skilled cricketers who have proved their mettle in the international arena. With Bhuvi, it was his individual journey which resonates to how Playerzpot has grown over the years. It is a clear example of where skills can take you. In the current scenario, fantasy gaming in India is predominantly male dominated. However, when it comes to skills and analysing ability, women are no less, the more the female participation, the better it is for sports in India. That was one of the many reasons we onboarded a female cricketer as we wanted to promote fantasy gaming amongst females.”
