New Delhi: With the Cricket World Cup on, why not create your own team, or better still, buy or sell any player? Aiming to cash in on the World Cup fever, various online gaming sites have launched cricket games to woo netizens and gamers can play it on their mobile phones too.
"We have launched a new game 'CricEx' in anticipation of the World Cup. It empowers players to virtually trade their favourite cricketers with virtual currency. We will soon enable our users to play the game on their mobile phones too," Rahul Razdan, president of products and operations, Ibibo Web (P) Ltd, said.
A player's virtual price will depend on his performance. For example, if a batsman hits a bowler for a six, his price would rise while that of the bowler would decrease. Besides recognition, participants will also get a chance to win cash prizes, added Razdan.
