“We started with a mission to disrupt how cricket fans engage with games today. While funding is never a testament to a company’s success, however, when experienced investors decide to back a company, it’s definitely a great validation of the mission one started with and a tribute to the hard work of a team which came together to build it,” BuyStars CEO and Co-founder Aman Satija said.
