Correct Answer : Option (A) - BCCI

Note :

The Indian cricket board, usually a slow-starter when it comes to picking up trends, has finally gone ahead and embraced the idea of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT). On Monday(23rd May 2022), the cricket board unveiled cricket metaverse company FanCraze as its official associate partner for the Women's T20 Challenge.

For the longest time, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had stayed away from bringing NFT companies on board as sponsors and had also asked the franchises in the Indian Premier League (IPL) to 'keep the distance'. This happened at a time when the International Cricket Council (ICC) and its other member boards had already started bringing NFT companies on board through official tie-ups..
