We are excited to add Harsha as a brand ambassador and strategic investor. His expertise and understanding of the sports ecosystem will help us grow Bowled.io and connect with sports fans globally,” he added.
“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 youthful, zealous team of cricket enthusiasts and their new take on cricket. I expect prolonged and exploratory journey with this fantastic young team,” Bhogle added.
