If you think about the above lines as beating around the bush, they are not, as such is the level of excitement from prospective users who lie in different strata of the blockchain world.

The World’s First-ever NFT Cricket Game – What are We Talking About?
We are talking about Meta Cricket League, the world’s first NFT cricket game that would hit the blockchain world soon. Before that, the play-to-earn (P2E) NFT cricket game’s developers, an NFT applications development firm based in Singapore, have announced that the game would be hosting its first drop called Super Loot during mid-April 2022.
The drops are set to be released on the game’s official marketplace called Jump.trade, which would spearhead the in-game economy once the game launches. It is the world’s first NFT-based cricket game planning to build its own metaverse ecosystem, which could revolutionize cricket for the web3 world.
As far as the game is concerned, the developers have launched the official website of the NFT marketplace and the game’s social media handles, where all the banter is set to happen as the dropping date nears.

What Do We Know about the Super Loot NFT Drop?
As far as the Super Loot NFT drop is concerned, the NFT collection would feature assets that shape the game’s nature and gameplay. The drop would also prove instrumental in giving prospective users some necessary perspective on the game that plans to build a metaverse.
According to some unidentified sources on the internet, the drop could feature player cards, booster packs, and physical NFT objects. Although the former two are not surprising to an average cricket fan who had heard the news, the latter probably could dramatically hype up the amusement around the Meta Cricket League NFT game, which already has touched peaks and bounds on the internet.
What Does This Mean for Different Sets of Target Audiences?
According to the company’s official press announcement, the Super Loot drop has it all for people who are cricket fans, gamers, or NFT collectible enthusiasts. Such a statement only reinforces the necessity for the crypto world to adapt to newer users as the word is reaching across the globe.
Now is the turn for the cricketing nations, that includes the important Asian subcontinent, among some other parts of the world. These regions have a huge fan following for cricket as the sport is ingrained in everyone’s hearts. Fans are so devoted to such an extent that they would not miss out on any cricket-related update. In such a scenario, an NFT-based cricket game has no reason to stay silent as the information reaches the cricket fanatic masses of the world.
For blockchain gamers though, the gaming experience could possess a new challenge as most of the existing blockchain gamers have little idea about the sport of cricket. For your information, the top proportion of geographical distribution of the players of the game Axie Infinity has seen three countries occupying the list – Brazil, Indonesia, and the Philippines. People in these nations would not have enough knowledge about cricket as a sport.
So, although the question of how the game would address the issue if they look to attract gamers from these countries, it has been projected that a good amount of gamers spread across the world have been waiting for the game. This is since there has been word spreading that earning opportunities are higher than in other sport-based NFT games.
When talking about NFT collectors, their general notion is that whenever an application is a first in a particular category, the chances are that the application might become legendary. This has happened since the ages of the CryptoPunks collection. Collectors are keen to have their hands on good NFT games too, as having a collectible from a famous game is a huge feat and a reason to proclaim oneself highly.
Also, even if they need to trade the collectible, opting for a collection from a game is a viable option. This is because there would be a flowing economy in the gameverse, and one can easily fetch big bucks selling a rare collectible. In the present case, the Jump.trade NFT marketplace looks promising to host a busy highway of multiway trading traffic.
