The VR cricket programme will be released worldwide in April 2018. The custom-made electronic bat used in the game was unveiled in the presence of Union Minister Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad, Electronics and IT minister of India who appreciated the team for their exemplary work. This unique format of cricket has gained everyone’s attention at the UP Investors’ Summit 2018 last week.

“The landscape of eSports and VR is experiencing a transformation. ProYuga is at the forefront of this change and ahead of the global market. It is overwhelming to witness the unparalleled commitment shown by UP Govt & iB Hubs towards nurturing a robust and vibrant startup ecosystem”, says Mr. Trivikram Reddy, CEO ProYuga Advanced Technologies.

The product iB Cricket is well aligned with PM Modi’s vision to facilitate home-grown companies and make India a hub for major businesses. The Make in India and Startup India initiatives have encouraged startups like ProYuga to build their products in India and strengthen the Indian economy.

iB Cricket is gearing up for its worldwide release in April 2018. “We plan to have a simultaneous launch of the product in 25 different countries. We are highly positive about its potential and are sure that it will be played and enjoyed by a large audience globally,” Trivikram added.

ProYuga is being supported end-to-end by iB Hubs, a PAN India Startup Hub which was launched in November 2016 by Shri Amitabh Kant, CEO of NITI Aayog.

Ms. Alekhya, CEO iB Hubs quoted that “We are very happy to support young startups like ProYuga to come up with world-class innovations. In the future as well, iB Hubs will assist such committed startups and we are confident that with the system developed by iB Hubs, Indian startups can expand globally within six months.”
