Rohit was quoted in a report from PTI saying, “I have been a big fan of the work Graphic India has been doing in the country to create new Indian superheroes. The idea to collaborate with them to launch India’s first cricket based superhero comic made perfect sense.”

Rohit further spoke about the comic series and said, “Hyper Tygers is an action-packed adventure around a futuristic game of cricket unlike anything we have today.

As depleting condition of the nature and reducing numbers of the wildlife is one of the most sensitive issues at present, Rohit has stepped up and taken a social cause. The series will focus on these issues and spread awareness with Green Tyger being the mysterious hero who is a masked and defiant cricketer with some super power.

Hyper Tyger and Green Tyger are also looking for sponsors who intend to promote the environmental awareness.

Graphic India’s Co-Founder and CEO Sharad Devarajan said, “Rohit Sharma is the perfect partner to help us bring this futuristic cricket world to India and the hundreds of millions of cricket fans in the country. Cricket is a sport that is beloved by billions around the world and its time we finally combined the love of that game with the fun of superheroes. Hyper Tygers will excite global audiences with epic adventures, filled with heroic characters and powerful messages to save our planet and inspire change.”
